    First Movie SONG That Comes to Mind

    Just like "first film that comes to mind" or "first actor", but with songs. Can be a vocal song like "Singin' in the Rain" or an instrumental song like "Theme from Jaws" ============================== Clue: Comedy song

    Double Feature

    New game, though I'd try it-- one person names a movie, the next person names another movie that would make a good double feature. Continuously, not waiting for the previous person to say yes or no, like "first film that comes to mind" No right or wrong answers, except no TV movies, just real movies. For example, if I wrote "SINGIN' IN THE RAIN " you could write... another Gene Kelly musical like AMERICAN IN PARIS, another movie making movie like HOLLYWOOD ENDING another movie about silent to sound like THE ARTIST Or if you're sick and twisted, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE Etc, etc, etc ---------------------------------------------

    Very recent example is LES MISERABLES -- of course it's a European stage musical already, but the film was made by a British company and a British director, Tom Hooper, which explains all the British & Aussie leads (I'm totally in love with their British Gavroche)

    Another national landmark of course is Monument Valley, filmed in many a John Ford western like FORT APACHE Petrified Forest NM and its neighbor Painted Desert NM show up in an early Gable film actually called THE PAINTED DESERT (1931) Niagara Falls shows up a lot, but I always think of it in REMEMBER THE NIGHT Buddy the Elf also visits the Empire State Building And the GHOSTBUSTERS (in #2) have to animate The Statue of Liberty

    Chaplin produced his own films and urged Keaton to stay independent rather than sign with MGM . There were lots of independent producers in silent era, but that's all I remember. Congrats on 1000!
