    I altered my list from yesterday. I can't believe I forgot to include The Blue Angel, and also wasn't thinking in terms of Perceval Le Gallois being a musical, which of course it is.

    A Hard Day's Night would be at the top. I love that movie.

    I haven't seen too many musicals, but I guess my list would include Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, a bunch of Disney flicks, Moulin Rouge, and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut. [​IMG]
