So, here a few of mine.....
#1. Jason and the Argonauts (1963) This is one of the things which helped fuel my passion for History.
I mean, really, who can go past the brilliance of Ray Harryhausen and those animated skeletons?
#2. Shenandoah (1965) More History - this one sparked my passion for the American civil war, which was why my visit to Gettysburg in 2012 was one of the highlights of my life.
#3. North by Northwest (1959) - who can forget the iconic crop duster scene?
or the final sequence on Mount Rushmore?
I think that this film sparked my interest in thrillers and crime stories.
#4. To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
What can I say? Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch? Say no more.
This film gave me a firm sense of right and wrong and of justice.
Now, as I look at these films, they are all from the late 1950s to mid 1960s but don't get me wrong, there have been lots of great movies which I have loved over the years but these films listed here are the ones which I return to time after time.
What are your favourite films of all time? I would love to know.
If you write a comment telling me which are your favourite films of all time on this post, I will choose someone at random to receive a surprise Cross Stitch Design from my stash.
I will leave this open for a week (so it will close next Tuesday, 14th Oct).
