Thank you for the thread!!

As a lifelong film fan I thought this might be a fun place to post lists of our favorite films broken down by genre, as it's so hard to just name your 10 favorite films. I hope these lists will get people talking, enjoying memories and maybe most important open our eyes to films we have not seen.....now, where should we begin? , Horror, Comedy, Action, Western, Silent, Noir, Adventure, Crime, Fantasy, Mystery, Romance….. how about a category for films that really fit no particular genre? The list doesn't have to be top 10, you can name as many or as few as you like.

I’ll let someone else decide where to begin and then I will play along..

Hope to hear from you soon

Steadmund Brand

One film that has it all and has been a firm favourite of mine since its release in 1995 is the classic"muppet treasure island"

Hi Robert,

I do not choose to not include "Bartleby" with Paul Schofied.

While we are at it include Peter Ustinov's excellent "Billy Budd" and John Huston's "Moby Dick".

Call me Jeff
