    A far cry from Truman Capote's novella, this film became as iconic of it's own as Audrey Hepburn steals every scene - just get past the Mickey Rooney bits - not cool.​

    Speaking oif icons, this movie not only introduced a whole new genre, had two screen icons dueling and perhaps kicked off one of the most infamous and long running fueds in Hollywood history.​

    1969



    (Full Movie)

    When the desperation of people was turned into a spectacle and trauma is mere entertainment - this film paved the way for so many others, not to mention reality shows that have followed. Jane Fonda, Suzannah York and Gig Young all turn in top performances in a film that holds the all time record for most Oscar nominations (9) without havng been nominated for Best Picture... Go figure?​

    Yes, I made a post about that, as I had accidently made 2 entries for the same film. It was for The Unforgiven and another was for Unforgiven... both are the same movie, so had to combine them when I realized that, whihc screwed up the numbers... I have gone back and partly corrected, but still have some to go, and then figure out what then gets added to the 100 spot. But doing the rest of the reveal before going back to do all that.

    A musical comedy about the Gold Rush in No Name City - which spawned
    one of the more unlikey Number 1 songs of all time. Just go with the flow
    and enjoy the cult classic it is now.​

    What's wrong with the boy? Kes has all of Loach's trademark empathy in exploring such a life.​

    At the height of the Cold War, with the prospect of nuclear annihilation seemingly all too real, trust Stanley Kubrick to make such a biting satire, and Peter Sellers, who completely steals the show in multiple roles, but most especially in 5 minutes as the eponymous, Dr Strangelove.​

    I watched this for the very first with my wife at Christmas. There was nothing on, so I stretched out on the couch hoping for a wee nap. All of a sudden , I found myself actually watching it. It was superb.
