  • i am inter­est­ing­ly sur­prised at some of the movies you’ve nev­er seen.

  • That’s anoth­er one I can’t remem­ber if I’ve seen. I have mem­o­ries of a scene involv­ing a car as the set piece, but that’s it.

  • is this list eberts all time favorites? and they are in the car alot in blue vel­vet.

  • If you saw Blue Vel­vet, you’d remem­ber it! If we can get a copy of Aguirre, I always want­ed to see that. And I can nev­er get enough of Duck Soup “Your nuts, Madam. I cer­tain­ly am!” and The Trea­sures of the Sier­ra Madre (I don need no steekin’ badges!). You have to watch West Side Sto­ry just to stare at Natal­ie Wood.
