 What, I am stunned nobody even chimed-in on this one, but did so a lot on both top 3 actors & actresses, what happened?

 

From what I've gathered from those boards since about 2001 or so the films most seem to love the most are

 

*Casablanca, *GWTW & Singin In the rain  Runner-up: It's a Wonderful Life

  Anybody see what I've always noticed here, a pattern

I already think I posted this, but adding up both the lades & gents of The Silver-Screen  is *Bogey-(by far too!), *James Stewart & Cary Grant  Actresses: *Bette Davis-(by a lotta fans), *Katharine Hepburn & *Ingrid Bergman

 

PLEASE PICK I DID THIS AS A TRILOGY TO THE OTHER TWO?

My top 3 favorite films:

The Long, Long Trailer

Casablanca

Gidget

 

I'm not sure how to rate the top 3 films that I haven't seen yet, but I suppose if I base the list on reputation:

Gone With the Wind

The Manchurian Candidate

Chinatown

Told fans, *Casablanca is likely leader though  You must somehow check out the brilliantly constructed 1962-(the rehash was barely ok (**1/2) *Sinatra driven 1962 Manchurian Candidate  tons of controversy followed most said it was to dio wth JFK,etc  He talked about it in his final tv interview with Larry King around 1988  It's easily to be found on youtube & elsewhere, 2 to 3 pts & besides another film he did in '54 Suddenly (strong ***1/2-out of 4 stars) for which he was truly robbed of another nomination & a true bad guy in it. Had more to do with killing the president.    Good luck watching them,*GWTW is the stunner that you've yet to be able to see it  I went to it 3 times over 30 plus years  Not among my favs but must be seen  I recently-(a week ago) went to TCM's promo of *Lawrence of Arabia & that's event superior then *GWTW for the silver-screen. 0ne can tell with the latter in all the directors changing  1st 1/2 is stringer  (TRIVIA: also mostly shot at Culver Studios near M-G-M)

1. Brief Encounter

2. Bonnie and Clyde

3. Er ist Wieder Da

These questions are fun to answer, but difficult at the same time, for how do you choose just three movies when there are so many that you love. however, here are my all-time favorite three:

Ben Hur

Becket

Barry Lyndon

But, I can't help it, I have to mention a few more:

Quo Vadis

Pulp Fiction

The Egyptian (directed by Michael Curtiz)

I could go on and on. Here is another of my favorites: The Accidental Tourist
