    1. I like Phryne Fischer too, all three seasons are on streaming Netflix now. I’m going to miss them after I’ve seen the final four that I have left.

    2. I went in to T.B. from two different devices and also hit the two different posts.

      BTW, my first reply was intended to go with your second entry that mentioned Miss Fischer’s Murder Mysteries.

  1. I love Fiddler On the Roof. It’s visually and musically beautiful. I am usually not one to watch movies over and over, but there is something about Fiddler that always draws me in.

  2. West Side Story, hands down the best musical movie ever! (Geez, Tim, I sometimes wonder if we weren’t separated at birth! Strange how much we have in common.) I agree one of the best movies too, but Casablanca is my number one overall. The cool thing about Casablanca is that is a quasi-musical because the music is such an integral part of the story without being overtly featured. The classic “sing-off” between the Germans and French can still bring tears to my eyes after dozens of watchings.

    Funniest movie of all time and one of my top 5 favorites is “Young Frankenstein.” I’d love to attend a midnight screening of that a la “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Imagine 250 costumed movie buffs shouting “He… vas …. my…. BOYFRIENDT!” in unison. Or singing, “Ohhhhh, sweet mystery of life, at last I’ve found you-u-u-u-u-u!”

  4. The Reivers…based on a William Faulkner coming of age story with a funny, silly Steve McQueen (I think it was his last or one of his last films)…and the best horse race I’ve ever seen in a movie. Over and over and over…oh, and The Dead based on the James Joyce short story. John Huston’s last film. Beautiful and touching. But, as BiR says, also Charade and A Thousand Clowns. Hard to whittle down the list.
