OK, I love Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast", and it has more magic that any film I can think of. I don't think you can tell that story better.
I agree that it is an excellent list and includes some of my favorites. I was surprised to see Pygmalion, not because I don't think it is an excellent film. I do. I just wasn't aware that a lot of people had heard of it. I used to come home from school and watch the Janis Collection on public television. This film and others based on Bernard Shaw Plays were very entertaining to me, Caesar and Cleopatra, Major Barbara. They also played the great Japanese films. Of course Seventh Samurai, Yojimbo, Hara Kiri and Throne of Blood.
Thanks for the list! It brought back a lot of memories.
PS: Good to see you back!

- I enjoyed Robert Mitchum answering to Kirk Douglas, not many have the gravitas for that role over Mitchum - PhilJ 17:25:12 09/22/18 (0)
