    Favourite movie suggestions please!

    Hi everyone

    We’re going to be launching an exciting new fundraising initiative early next year and we’re looking for some help with a promotion we’re planning.

    The initiative is based on movie-related fundraising and we’re going to be doing a poll on people’s favourite movies, with about 10 options to choose from. We’d like the options to be films that are iconic and perhaps have famous scenes that we could recreate for a photo.

    Some suggestions so far include Wizard of Oz, Singing in the Rain and Ghostbusters. Can you suggest any more please?

    Thanks! :-)

    Not favourites of mine by any stretch of the imagination but, purely for dressing up purposes you could have “The sound of music” & “Charlie & the chocolate factory”, you know… oompah loompah’s etc

    I just seen a bloody wonderful French film called ‘intouchables’. Only here on limited release but, I ‘sourced’ it online, having been released in France Nov 2011. I urge you all to see it, it’s very unconventional

    My favourite movie is Casablanca. There is such a wealth of quotes from that movie, i can hardly think!

    If you don’t run with my suggestion “You’ll regret it. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life”. (Rick telling Ilsa to get on the aeroplane)

    the scene from “Chitty Chitty BAng Bang” when they are doing the Music box scene.
    “What do you see
    You people gazing at me
    You see a doll on a music box
    That’s wound by a key
    How can you tell
    I’m under a spell
    You cannot see
    How much I long to be free”

    or Pinocchio
    I’ve got no strings, To hold me down, To make me fret, or make me frown, I had strings, But now I’m free, There are no strings on me

    Yes, an amazing true story of survival and agonizing decision making.

    (this one and the one where the man had to cut his own arm off to survive are two of the most
    mind blowing stories of all time.)
