One of my Favorite Movies

On Facebook the other day we were listing 15 movies. Fifteen movies right off the top of your head. List 15 movies without thinking much about them. Could you do it? What movies would be on your list?

My son listed this movie. I didn't. Silly me. I've watched this movie all my life. I watched this movie whenever it was tv when I was a kid even through we only had three channels. Hey it was the 60's and the 70's and we lived in the country.

Three television channels - one channel each of ABC, CBS, NBC. I know there was a time when I was wee little that we only had ABC. How many channels do you have now? We have 132 channels but I think I only watch about a dozen of them.

Here's a clip from the movie my son listed and I didn't. By the way, it's just about the funniest part of the whole movie. Big Sis - I know you'll enjoy it!!!

Do you know it? Have you seen it? If not you should. You'll laugh and laugh.

It's The Great Race starring Tony Curtis, Jack Lemmon, and Natalie Wood.

Here's Natalie in the movie:

I counted her dresses one time. Just to see how many changes she made. Can't remember the number now but I'm sure it was 30 or more. I could never figure out how or why the characer would take so many different coats with her.

I now own this movie on DVD. Now I can watch it when ever I want! Thank goodness for modern technology.

Oh and if you were wondering about my list of 15 movies. Here it is:
