NINOTCHKA is amusing.
STAGECOACH is brilliant.
CAINE MUTINY is excellent.
DIRTY DOZEN is essential for anyone with testosterone.
MALTESE FALCON is one of the wittiest movies ever. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
HOW THE WEST WAS WON is too long.
MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE is the best in paranoia cinema.
TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE is another great one from Bogart and Huston.

Elizabeth Taylor is a slip stomping her foot in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof about made me explode.
