My Top 50 Favorite Movies


When I began to list my Top-20 favorite movies of all time, I did not expect it to be difficult. I was wrong. The list grew to 30, then 40, then 50, and so on. I could have easily made a Top-100 favorite movie list. For the sake of time and space I cut my list at 50. Needless to say, the list changed many times before I decided to publish it. Below are 50 of my favorite movies (listed alphabetically). For those who know me, some of the movies listed may surprise you. What are your favorites?
