One of the most talented movie stars of all not Elizabeth Taylor...but Lassie! You could add Rin Tin Tin and Hooch of "Turner and Hooch" as well but I think in my book...Lassie gets the Oscar.

So I have been tagged by my lovely friend and wonderful Artist, Kathy Weller to reveal my top 25 all time favorite movies. This was not an easy task...and I had another 10 or so (mostly dog movies...big surprise) that I wanted to add but in the spirit of THE we go...

Out of Africa
Elephant Man
What's Eating Gilbert Grape
The Miracle Worker
Edward Scissorhands
House of Sand and Fog
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Napoleon Dynamite
Forrest Gump
Little Big Man
Schindler's List
A Beautiful Mind
Dances With Wolves
Driving Miss Daisy
The Bounty
Splendor in the Grass
To Kill a Mockingbird
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
The Straight Story
Cinema Paradiso
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
Romeo and Juliet (1968 version)

And now I would love to tag YOU to see what your movie list is like!...Kate, Kim and Melissa!

I don't think I could name 25 movies; I'm impressed! But since any that I would come up with are on your list, have you seen Across the Universe? It came to our wonderful little indy theater in Paducah last month and Bill and I LOVED it!!!
I'll have to order some of the movies I haven't seen on your list from Netflix.
all the best-

Oh my goodness - I will have to put some thought into this. It will be a great fun to think back to all of the movies that I have loved.

The picture of Lassie brought back some wonderful memories.I loved Lassie and asked often to have a Lassie dog too. Our poor terrier didn't quite do all that Lassie could do, but I loved her anyway!!
