This is... my favourite film

Well, I'm going to get back on the This is bandwagon, after quite a hiatus...

My favourite film. Mmmm. Well I can't really narrow it down so I'll do a few.


Notting Hill
I love the last scene where they're in the private park, and he's reading and she's laying on his lap, pregnant, with her birkenstocks on. I also love the bit where they're talking about his Chagall print...


Anna Scott: I can't believe you have that picture on your wall.
William: You like Chagall?
Anna Scott: I do. It feels like how being in love should be. Floating through a dark blue sky.
William: With a goat playing the violin.
Anna Scott: Yes - happiness isn't happiness without a violin-playing goat.


Gone with the Wind
I've always had a crush on Clark Gable. Mmmm. But the rich, indulgent, loving-but-dominant character of Rhett Butler - ooooo!

The King and I
"Shall we dance..." Again with the strong man. Yul Brynner started my love of bald men... It has always been the one thing that disappoints me about my choice in husband; he has a full head of hair, and judging by his genes he won't be losing it any time soon.


I could probably go on. Some of Adam Sandler's stuff is definately up there. And I love a good romantic comedy ala Love Actually. But that will do.

oh yeah, that goat moment is lovely. I do love that film. I had forgotten how much until I watched it again recently.

I'm with you on the bald men, but what is it about them? I always think of it as the Moby look and I'm not even that into Moby.

I, too love the "happiness isn't happiness without a violin-playing goat" quote and you reminded me about once, when I was a MUD user, someone actually gave my boyfriend and I a violin playing goat as a virtual gift. We built a virtual goat pen off our virtual balcony for it...

And please don't get me started on bald men!

I am neither a Julia R or Hugh G fan, but I do really like Notting Hill. Must see it again soon - thanks for reminding me!

And oh yes, bald men....

Chagall, lithographs and drawings are so amazing sometimes. I am looking into investing in one.
