I highly recommend Breakfast At Tiffany's. Oh, and I feel like I must live under a rock for never having heard of most of these movies.

Wow, so I've totally seen most of those. That's either really cool, or I just have way too much time on my hands. =) I'm gonna go with cool. My dad's actually in Out of Africa. I have to admit, I've only watched the parts he's in. It's not a very exciting movie.

I think it is cool that you have seen most of them. I want to start adding them to my netflix list and watching some of them. That is REALLY cool that your Dad is in "Out of Africa"!!
