    I can’t believe I didn’t put The Wicker Man in my list so just putting it up there now.

    Not the Nicolas Cage one obviously
    Although that is entertaining for unintentional comedy reasons

      Good call Yabs. The Wicker Man could easily have made my list. The big question of course would be - would The Wicker Man have made Wickerman’s list.

              Hey RD,

              Good selection but......No fair...you exceeded the limit. Oh well, I always say...give an inch and I'll take a mile and ask for forgiveness afterwards (sorry Herlock). Here are some more to add to my 20 to make it a top 40:

              Amadeus - Astonishing performance by F Murray Abaham as Salieri, and of course, the music.
              Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid - Newman and Redford
              Out of Africa - Redford, Streep and Klaus Maria Brandauer
              Charade - Grant, Hepburn, Coburn and Matthau
              The Natural - Redford and Duvall
              The Man Who Would Be King - Kipling classic with Connery, Caine and Plummer
              Die Hard - Alan Rickman as the classic villain
              The Court Jester
              The Great Escape
              The Magnificent Seven (Original) - who can name the
              actors playing the 7? (no googling please)
              Hard Times 1975 - Bronson and Coburn
              The Red Sun - Bronson and Mifune
              Death Hunt 1981 - Bronson and Marvin
              The White Buffalo - Bronson and the great Will Sampson
              One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Nicholson and Sampson plus DeVito and Dourif in early roles
              Unforgiven
              Tin Cup
              Second Hand Lions - Caine and Duvall
              Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - Caine and Martin

              Zulu

                      Always good to see suggestions George. You’ve added one of my favourites Charade. I always thought that if they had started the Bond films in the 50’s instead of the 60’s Cary Grant would have got my vote as Bond.

                        Hi Frank,

                        In The Heat Of The Night is one of my favourites too. Sellers’ Pink Panther movies were brilliant - I went for A Shot In The Dark for my list but it was a difficult decision.

                          Indeed, Mike, it's very difficult to have to choose a favorite Pink Panther movie. They all have brilliant and hilarious scenes.

                              Hi George,
                              Charade almost made the cut in my list.

                              Another Audrey Hepburn movie which is a hoot is "How To Steal A Million" with Peter O'Toole and Eli Wallach.
