My family and friends know I love movies, I mean love.
Once my sister Sylvia–also a movie fan–asked me to list my 100 favorites and I came up with more than that.
While many of us are isolated, I wanted to share some of these and why I love them. Some are well known, others not so much. I hope you enjoy these suggestions and check them out so you can add them to your list.
I’ll start with “A Face in the Crowd” (1957)
A still relevant story about the power of media to sell politicians like products. Andy Griffith, better known as the kindly TV sheriff, stars as a country bum turned media star megalomaniac and he’s mesmerizing. (forgive the alliteration.) The great cast includes Patricia Neal and Walter Matthau in a serious role. Directed by Elia Kazan and written by Budd Schulberg. Still disturbing. Still very entertaining.
