  It's kinda' strange & the complete opposite of not only Robert 0sborne, but most film critics and buffs

there's really no listing of TCM's Ben Mankiewicz' & his own personal favs in cinema history?

 

All I ever found was>

 

*"West Side Story"

*"Ben-Hur" (l959 version)

*"All About Eve"

& 1998's "0ut of Sight"

 

& have heard him mention  Steve McQueen as his favorite actor a few times & somewhat *Oscar winner Lee Marvin

 

I have kept files on everything cinematic long before the internet & wanted to add his to that list :unsure:

 

 

Thanks

His selection of ALL ABOUT EVE indicates some possible family favoritism. I'd be skeptical about any list of his.

I heard he likes the movie "Ben" but without any songs by Michael Jackson.

Ben was 30 when he first saw the movie Citizen Kane.  He had heard about it all his life, but he never felt ready to see it until he was older.

Did he mention any of the movies ironed out by his cousin Tom Mankiewicz -- "Superman" (1978) and the James Bond films "Diamonds Are Forever" (1971), "Live and Let Die" (1973), "The Man with the Golden Gun" (1974), "The Spy Who Loved Me" (1977) and "Moonraker" (1979)?
