In what other thread could this be posted?! :dntknw:
I don’t like the fact that my chances of survival seem to be linked to the common sense of others. :Thinking:

Airplane! is on my short list of the funniest movies ever made (I bought the DVD). The others, in no particular order, are Young Frankenstein, Some Like It Hot, The Princess Bride, The Great Race, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, A Night At The Opera, and Duck Soup. I may have omitted some, but I definitely recommend these to aficionados of comedy.

EDIT: Let me add some more: You Don't Mess With The Zohan, and all Pink Panther films with Peter Sellers. If you can deal with the bizarre, often outrageous (definitely not politically correct) humor, try Borat.

We watched Some Like It Hot on BBC recently and as Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon were running to catch their train, in full drag, OH asked me who I thought was the best woman.


Apparently she was not expecting me to say Marilyn Monroe  :D 


Edit to add: We would include the zany It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. 1963 may be too far back for many of you, but it's worth seeing (IMHO), featuring most of the famous comedians of the era.

As I understand it, Marilyn Monroe was problematic during the making of Some Like It Hot. She would show up late, if at all, and was very temperamental. Someone asked Billy Wilder why he kept her in the film and he replied that he could hire his grandmother, who would be reliable, but nobody would come to see the film.

This was found in a 1909 diary kept by Kate Boyd, who lived in England:

Too bashful to propose personally and too impatient to write, he said (by telephone) “My dear, dear Suzy, will you marry me?” She answered promptly “Yes, I will – who are you?”

Thanks, Frances!
