I am sure I'll regret some choices and forgotten some others, but here it is!

A is for All About Eve (1950): “Fasten your seatbelts … ”
B is for The Birds (1963): “Don’t they ever stop migrating?”
C is for Carrie (1976): “There all gonna laugh at you!”
D is for Death on the Nile (1978): Glorious bitchy dialogue and a cast to die for.

  1. I love this blog, but I would have to say you missed 2 most important ones.
    Quiet Man
    Auntie Mame.

    Still think you blog is wonderful. Every day I have a day off I check you guys out.

  2. Hey Ray--

    I love a man who wears a cowboy hat and boots well (especially if that's all they have on)! I agree with your choices totally--One movie per letter is so constricting! Still, I have to go with La Bette in All About Eve and I do loves me some Helen Mirren. She was the best Queen since Scott Thompson in Kids In the Hall: Brain Candy! Love your Blog!
