*1. The Sound Of Music - A
*2. West Side Story - A (some of the best cinematography and editing of any musical)
*3. The Curse of the Cat People - A-
*4. The Set-Up - A-

5. Born to Kill - B+
*6. The Body Snatcher - B+
7. The Haunting - B
8. Star Trek: The Motion Picture - B


I'm also about 95% sure I've seen The Hindenburg, but again, it was 20+ years ago.

Own: 5

There isn't really anything here I'd make a big point of seeing, but am eventually interested in seeing The Day the Earth Stood Still, Star!, I Want to Live!, and a few others.

David there's two types of musical fan, those who absolutely adore Julie Andrews skipping with the children thru the woods singing "do-re-mi", and those who love West Side Story...

Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke,
You gotta understand,
It's just our bringing up-ke
That get us out of hand.
Our mothers all are junkies,
Our fathers all are drunks,
Golly Moses, natcherly we're punks!

The Curse of the Cat People - A- - I'm sure I'm in the minority once again, but while Cat People was good, Curse is outstanding.

A favorite of mine. Robert Wise directed two of my favorite noirs, two of the best horror movies of the 40s and one of the best horror movies of all time. Not so keen on "Day the Earth Stood Still" - way too earnest and po-faced.

The Haunting (1963) Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
West Side Story (1961) Posted Image Posted ImagePosted Image 1/2
