Today, I'm joining a sort of blog carnival called Thursday Thirteen - actually, in blog terms, it's a meme...I'm not sure what a meme is, but I think it's something good. For bloggers that is. So, here's my list of 13 classic movies compiled with the help of the AFI lists of their top 10 movies by genre. I have to admit, I've not seen most of the movies on their lists...but I intend to see the following 13 classics before the end of 2008 - care to share some popcorn & a flick with me?
2....Roman Holiday, starring Gregory Peck & Audrey Hepburn. Romantic Comedy.
3....It Happened One Night, starring Clark Gable & Claudette Colbert. Romantic Comedy.
4....The Searchers, starring John Wayne & Jeffrey Hunter. Western.
5....Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, starring Paul Newman & Robert Redford. Western.
6....High Noon, starring Gary Cooper & Thomas Mitchell. Western.
7....The Pride Of The Yankees, starring Gary Cooper & Teresa Wright. Sports.
8....Vertigo, starring James Stewart & Kim Novak. Mystery.
9....The Maltese Falcon, starring Humphrey Bogart & Mary Astor. Mystery.
10..Dial M For Murder, starring Ray Milland & Grace Kelly. Mystery.
11..To Kill A Mockingbird, starring Gregory Peck & Frank Overton. Courtroom Drama.
12..Lawrence of Arabia, starring Peter O'Toole & Alec Guinness. Epic.
