A MovieFanfare Reader Names His Favorite Movies

A MovieFanfare Reader Names His Favorite Movies A few weeks back, MovieFanFare featured a post that would give readers the opportunity to submit their own guest post about whatever film-related topic they wanted to discuss. The response was terrific, and many of you sent in lists of your favorite films. Here’s what reader Brock White had to say about his personal faves.

The Haunting (1963) starring Claire Bloom, Russ Tamblyn and the incomparable Julie Harris.

Gigi is highlighted by an all-star cast and probably the best score for a movie ever written.

Funny Girl, a ’60s film that introduced us to Barbra Streisand (who is the greatest star of our time).
What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? A pairing of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford that is a fascinating study of old Hollywood.

The Wizard of Oz.  What more could we ask for in a movie?

Meet Me In St. Louis has Judy Garland at her most beautiful. Includes the timeless tune “The Trolley Song,” which is unmatched

Big,which illustrates how valuable we are at any age and is totally enjoyable, even though the lead actress smokes! (Something I find disgusting).

The Whales of August features three accomplished actresses–Bette Davis, Lillian Gish and Ann Sothern–who prove that age doesn’t matter as long as you have talent.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is a totally believable love story with two beautiful lead actors, Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney.

Wuthering Heights (1939) features the most beautiful man on earth, Laurence Olivier, and the only actress who could play Cathy. Merle Oberon.

Brock is a 60-year-old Atlanta resident who started going to movies in the late 1950s.  He would walk to the Coral Theatre (Hometown, IL) or Arlington Theatre (Arlington Heights, IL) every weekend and watch the Vincent Price movies and all the musicals and it only cost about .60 total!  He believes that movies make the hard times in life much easier to take!
