I totally agree with Arsenic and Old Lace and What's Up Doc. What about Some Like It Hot? I'm sorry, but there is nothing funnier than a man dressing up and pretending to be a woman. Of course nobody did that better than Monty Python.

Thanks grayson429, I forgot"Some Like it Hot" on my list,

and you're right, no one does drag like Monty Python. My favorite from the "Flying Circus" is the penguin sketch, and as a result, there are now 9 stuffed penguins living on the top of my telly! Luckily they are not the exploding kind.
