Oh come on Patt, what about all the old Gorgeous George films, you tell me you never tire of watching. 'Tall In The Saddle' 'In Old Oklahoma' 'Randy Rides Alone' to name a few, It seems you can't post without mentioning your undying love for this Gorgeous George. Why you've even got an old set of his false teeth, so I'm told.

I never noticed George 'Gabby' Hayes's eyes Patt, it was his teeth that I noticed, or should I say his lack of teeth. But I bow to your expertise, well, you can remember when George used to get the gal?

If I like a film I will watch it again. I don't really buy DVDs as a habit and rarely play them but I must have dozens despite this.

I just tend to watch things when they are on TV. If I dislike them , then I'll not bother looking at them again but if they are mediocre / not worth owning but have something of interest amongst their flaws I might watch again.

There are some films that I find it hard to switch away from if they're on telly, even if I've seen them half-a-dozen times.

I'd say most people will re-watch a film they like. Personally i like to watch them infrequently. The sort of people who run through their Star Wars DVDs once a week kind of disturb me. I've known one or two.

I forgot to mention Dead Poets Society. Scent of a Woman,and On the Waterfront.

Then theres the Alfred Hitchcock films,like Suspicion, Notorious,and Spellbounder.
I also would not buy the DVDs but am quite happy to watch them again if they are on TV providing its been a fair while since seeing them,i don't want a complete overdose of quality films.

Yes, they loved to see his teeth soaking in a glass of water every night.

I liked the song "True Love" in that.
but Princess Gracie wasn't in Guys and Dolls.
I know a bit about her and her distant cousin's because her Grandfather came from the same village in Ireland as my Grandad.
