There are sooooooo many.

Even if I had to choose only one I'd still have trouble choosing between two Bogart films -- "The Left Hand Of God" (with Lee J. Cobb) and the original "We're No Angels" (with Peter Ustinov, Aldo Rey, Leo G. Carrol, and Basil Rathbone).

D.O.A. - hmmm, maybe was 1948 or '49. Good noir, whenever it was made. Anyone know what year? Edmund O'Brien plays a man poisoned - murdered -while on a trip to San Francisco, and while he has little time left to live until the incurable poison sets in, he searches for his murderer and the motive. Great jazz scene in a fictional waterfront bar, "The Fisherman," and some humorous scenes early on where he ogles attractive women in a hotel lobby, and a slide whistle goes off on the soundtrack.

I've seen these films several times over, and would happily watch them many times more, always something new to notice and favourite scenes to re-live:

'Truly, Madly, Deeply' (Alan Rickman, Juliet Stevenson: grief and moving on - wonderful)

'Fairy Tale' - the little girls who "saw" the Cottingley fairies

'In the Bleak Midwinter' - not such a well-known film directed by Kenneth Branagh. Excellent cast (e.g. John Sessions, Richard Briers, Julia Sawallah, Joan Collins, Celia Imrie). Motley crew of "thespians" put on a production of Hamlet.

"Addams Family Values" - I don't mind *how* many times I see this film ! I just love the gooey Summer Camp, the "Harmony Hut", the wonderful revenge the kids take on the goody-goodies. Superb stuff !!

Jeanie? what a funny short list. Me too, except for Darryl Hanna as Morticia. But Harvey Keitel as Houdini in the other one makes up for it. I liked that song in Truly Madly Deeply--so much better than the syrupy chart version.

For some reason I can watch the documentary Dogtown and Z Boys over and over, though I've never had any interest in skateboards, and don't plan to start.

Fred - yes, it is a funny short list, I agree ! I could have added plenty more, but these are the ones I could never see too often. It's Angelica Houston playing Morticia in "Addams Family Values" - I reckon she's great - I think Darryl Hanna must have been in another of the Addams Family films (which I don't think are as good as the Family Values one).

Yes - good actors in "Fairy Tale" - as well as Harvey Keitel, I liked one of the McGann brothers (I think it was Paul) playing the dad. A good actor.

I love 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' - you never quite know whether he really is there as a ghost, or in her mind, and in fact it doesn't matter. One of my favourite bits is when he brings home his mates from "the other side" to loll around watching videos (just as he did in this world !) and when one of the ghost mates gives Jamie a pat on the back as they wave her off, after they have finally both let go of each other never fails to have me reaching for the tissues... Aaaaah....

Kind Hearts and Coronets!

Other Ealing comedies like the Lady Killers would be up there on my list too. Rick Fielding once mentioned a film in an Annexe thread, "School For Scoundrels" - a great one (I think) for those who like that old Brittish humour.

Other favourites would include the Laurel and Hardy gem "Way Out West" (the one which has the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia"), any old Hammer Horror, Airplane, African Queen, Casablanca, American Werewolf in London...

All this from someone who rarely watches films...

My bigget dislike is things like the stuff from Stallone like Rambo, though at times, maybe it gives a scarey insight into what I'd call the American "Bush" type mentality or the shoot them up mentality that seems to support it...

Did anybody besides me see a movie w/Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty and Stockard Channing (a wonderful actress IMO)...I've only found it in video form and it has a couple of different titles (?), one of which is The Fortune. Very funny light comedy, Nicholson's turn much like his role in Going South. Other Nicholson favs: As Good as it Gets, Chinatown and Last Detail.

I could go for days, but wanted to get some of the great directors' movies on board. I apologize in advance for any duplicates:

4 directors immediately come to mind:

Alfred Hitchcock:
(dates approximate):

The 39 Steps (1939, Robert Donat, Madeline Carrol, I think)
To Catch A Thief (1955, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly)
Rear Window (1954 maybe? James Stewart Grace Kelly again)

Frank Capra:

Mr. Deeds Goes To Town (1936, Gary Cooper, Jean Arthur)
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939, James Stewart, Jean Arthur again)
It Happened One Night (1934, Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert)
It's A Wonderful Life (already mentioned? 1946)

John Ford:

anything with John Wayne, most especially

The Searchers (1956)
Rio Grande (1950)
The Quiet Man (1953)
Liberty Valance (1962)
3 Godfathers (1948?)

or without John Wayne, like The Wagonmaster (1950)

Howard Hawks:

and John Wayne again: Red River (1948) Rio Bravo (1958)
or without, like The Big Sleep (Bogart and Bacall, 1946 or 8)

Like most of you, I'll think of a lot more sometime soon.
