Our Summer of A Thousand Movies

As I mentioned in a blog post, I have my kids watching some “Classic Films”.  Here is the list of movies; I would love to know what you think!  And if you think I’m missing something, let me know!  I might add it!

The films of listed here in no particular order, and some of them they have now seen.  I say “Classic Films”  but really, just any good movie will do.  It’s kind of a short list; I’m adding to it as I remember great films from my yout–I mean, from my earlier years.

I am still actually quite young and fetching!  🙂
