      That’s in my personal top 5 and top 2 comedies (Young Frankenstein being the other and for the same reasons.)

      My favorite all time is Casablanca. But the greatest, historically and on many other levels, has to be Gone with the Wind.

          Good call and more so since it wasn’t initially popular but has gained rightful standing over time. Timeless.

          Kind of crazy that the same director, Victor Fleming, delivered that and my pick, Gone with the Wind, in the same year (1939).

                  If we're doing this, my vote for #1 seed goes to Hoosiers, followed closely by Remember the Titans. It's funny, that I'm a PE teacher and coach but I don't particularly care for many sports movies. Some others that I do like are Field of Dreams, Coach Carter, Miracle, and Radio. There's probably a few others that I can't recall at the moment, but overall I find most sports movies to be poorly done, unrealistic, corny, and cliche. And I especially dislike golf movies. Don't get me started on Tin Cup...

                    I NEVER would’ve guessed that. Not in a million years. Really. Who knew?
