When I was 12 and in 5th grade (1965) my entire class went to Famous Uptown Theater in Washington DC to see The Sound of Music. I have always had a warm spot for this movie due to this awesome field trip. Of course I was in love with Christoper Plummer for years after that. I had the soundtrack of the movie and new every song by heart. To this day if I hear one of the songs that had a skip on my record I expect to hear that skip.

Soooo when I feel bad I want to hear that Rain Drops On Roses song and Climb Every Mountain. Someday I am going to Salzburg Austria!

Hear is an awesome link that has a video with Leisel the 16 year old one of the original kids narrating

My all time favorite, that I can quote backwards and forwards:

LADYHAWKE


I also love:

Last of the Mohicans

Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves

Gone With the Wind

Sense & Sensibility

Cold Mountain

I am typically a sucker for any type of period romance.

I loved "August Rush". I have watched it over and over and keep the music CD in my car.

I love the movie "Field of Dreams".

Love the part when he gets to play a game of catch

with his father....and the end where it shows all the

cars coming to the field and gosh I even like the middle

parts.

The movie just touches me.

Hi Mary

Right in the middle of the baby boomer (mid 50's). You can rent Murphy's Romance at most rental places. It stars Sally Fields and James Garner. I think Garner's performance rates right up there with one of his best in The Notebook. Forgot to add that one also. I need to get a copy of Murphy's Romance for my collection--already have the others.

I also like Satuday Night Live, Dirty Dancing and Fried Green Tomatoes. Steel Magnolia's, True Grit, Rooster Cogburn and the Lady and at Christmas they always show the old black and white The Bells of Saint Mary's.

OMG! LADYHAWKE, especially the last battle in the church on horseback between Navarre and the Captain of the Guard! Man From Snowy River (slow- mo Brumby chase is awesome), Dirty Dancing, Christmas Story ("and what do you want for Christmas little boy? How about a nice football?", and Willow...in that order.
