Again, can some fellow TCM-ITE send in a clip of Splendor in the Grass, Angels with Dirty Faces, City Lights, Inherit the Wind,etc & the inception of Some Came Running

 

(P.S. I forgot when I listed Scorsese's fav films & inspirations Some Came Running is easily among them)

When I was a kid in the late 70's there was still such a thing as UHF.  In LA, channel 52 had become children's programming. The schedule was Little Rascals/Our Gang, then Three Stooges, then My Little Margie and then some other shows from 3pm till about 8pm. And I got home and watch it everyday.

So in that respect, I've probably watched Our Gang/Little Rascals & Three Stooges more than any other feature overall. But, that was long ago.

Most people still today strongly feel THE STOOGES shorts were made first for TV?

While on my 3 trips to whats left of Hollywood got to stay at same motel at 777 north vine, a stone's throw away from Paramount & old RKO

 

& also very close by is the original Columbia Pictures where of course THE STOOGES worked from 1934 to '59

I don't loath anyone. I figure he was doing the best he could do. No one could follow Curly so it was a no win situation.

I watch Astaire and Rogers movies all the time. It feels like I watch at least a couple a month. The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), any of Alfred Hitchcock's films (mostly Psycho), Marx Brothers films, The Great Escape, Zulu. I think I've watched Capricorn One two or three times this year. If you would like to count Three Stooges shorts, I watch a ton of those on a weekly basis.

I just noticed I'm not the only one who mentioned the Stooges. 😊

Thanx for fast reply  Besser also had a rep as being among the most difficult in Hollywood  He also appeared in the marvelous Abbott & Costello Show (l952-54)

& sadly was the lone Stooge present when they finally got a WOF-STAR  Curly Joe DeRita outlived them all, but went blind earlier from diabetes

Anything with Cagney and Bogey I can't resist watching 2 days in a row, either a week or  every 2 weeks.

I also watch anything with Bette Davis and Katharine Hepburn on a regular weekly basis.

Not surprisingly, mine is The Long, Long Trailer.  I have probably seen it 100 times (not kidding).  

After that:

Probably Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Grumpy Old Men, and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, as those are my family's annual Thanksgiving films.
 

Many of my Christmas films:


White Christmas, I watch it multiple times each holiday season

Meet Me in St. Louis, I watch it multiple times each holiday season and throughout the year

Never Say Goodbye (Errol Flynn), I watch this multiple times each holiday season and throughout the year

Love Actually, I watch it every year

A Charlie Brown Christmas How the Grinch Stole Christmas, I've been watching these two animated cartoons every single year my entire life.


Other films:

The Wizard of Oz- It used to air annually when I was little.  I have it on Blu Ray and make it a point to watch once a year or so.

Gidget- Love this movie, I've seen it a million times

Gidget Goes Hawaiian- Not as good as the Sandra Dee one, but it has its moments

Where the Boys Are- Love this movie.  I just love the 50s-60s teen beach movies, so I watch them all often

A Summer Place, if there's one thing I love as much as 50s-60s teen beach movies, it's 50s-60s teen melodrama! 

Casablanca- I never tire of this one

Singin' in the Rain- I never tire of this film either, seen it a million times

Gentleman Jim- I never tire of watching Errol strut around in a top hat and tails and later tight pants.

The Adventures of Robin Hood- A perfect film from beginning to end

Summer Rental- John Candy.  One of my family's favorite films.  We can recite all the dialogue. 

Smokey and the Bandit.  This film is a classic and hilarious.

The Brady Bunch Movie & A Very Brady Sequel.  As a lifelong fan of The Brady Bunch, I love these films.  They did such a great job. 

Double Indemnity- such a great noir, I never tire of listening to Fred MacMurray's dialogue and he and Barbara Stanwyck trying to go incognito  at the grocery store.

Dark Passage- The first person perspective  in this film is fascinating.

Gilda- Rita Hayworth is so glamorous and this film is just so much fun to watch

The More the Merrier- I never tire of listening to Jean Arthur explain the morning routine to Charles Coburn,  and later, hers and Joel McCrea's sexy scene on the stairs

The Thin Man- William Powell and Myrna Loy are perfection

Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House- I could listen to Myrna Loy explain paint colors all day.  The only way that this film would be better is if they got rid of the two daughters.

Mildred Pierce- Love this movie.  I can't get enough Veda.

Sabrina- Audrey Hepburn is so charming and I love her wardrobe.

Funny Face- I love the colors and the fashions.  Audrey's photo shoot is the highlight  of the film.

There's No Business Like Show Business- I love the music and all the fashions.  Mitzi Gaynor is such a delight.

--

There are probably so many more that I'm forgetting.  I'm big into watching my favorites when the mood strikes--which is probably why I still have 500+ movies to get through on the DVR.

And because she liked it so much, my wife and I also sat through many numerous viewings of THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO --the 2002 remake with JIM CAVEIZEL and GUY PIERCE.   It's pretty good actually.  ;)
