Godfrey Daniels, all of the movies that W.C. Fields made.



W.C. Fields


From The Bank Dick:

Egbert Sousé: Og Oggilby... sounds like a bubble in a bathtub!

Egbert Sousé: Ten cents a share. Telephone sold for five cents a share. How would you like something better for ten cents a share? If five gets ya ten, ten'll get ya twenty. A beautiful home in the country, upstairs and down. Beer flowing through the estate over your grandmother's paisley shawl.
Og Oggilby: Beer?
Egbert Sousé: Beer! Fishing in the stream that runs under the aboreal dell. A man comes up from the bar, dumps $3,500 in your lap for every nickel invested. Says to you, "Sign here on the dotted line." And then disappears in the waving fields of alfalfa.

Previous posts have done a good job of capturing my favorites.
Other potentials:
Mr. Mom
Annie Hall
Star Trek Movie (the one where they land in SF)

Three Stooges stuff is all great!
That Super Troopers trailer is great! Lots of scenes right out of my deranged childhood. Have to see it.

Classics that crack me up:

Marks Bros, Duck Soup
Bringing Up Baby
Some Like It Hot (very ahead of its time) "But you can't marry me, I'm a man!" "Well, nobody's perfect."

Newer movies:
There's Something About Mary "Frank and Beans!"
Stir Crazy
Ghost Busters
Little Miss Sunshine, which others have mentioned
Animal House
Blues Brothers especially the marvelous church scene
I see I am repeating others....

I like Fargo because I like quirky, well-made movies; it's just a little too ominous to be really comical.

I have a terrible memory when it comes to movies. That was another great one.

It's interesting how similar all the picks here are. Scarcely any of the "romantic comedy" junk that gets pushed so heavily.

Oh, I forgot to include Arsenic and Old Lace on my list

Including one of my very favorite lines in any movie...

Dr. Gillian Taylor: Don't tell me, you're from outer space.
James T. Kirk: No, I'm from Iowa. I only work in outer space.

I just thought of Paper Moon. Ryan O'Neal, Tatum O'Neal and Madeline Kahn were outstanding. Crazy funny movie!

Referred to, in the Amethyst household, as "manipulative schlock." Well, OK, only Amethyst calls it that. Mr. Amethyst refers to such movies by the highly technical term, cr@p.
