I was asked this question the other day and straight away I answered "Singing In The Rain". No hesitation.
And it is my favourite film, or at least it was at that moment.
But hard on it's heels came the realisation that the film I own several copies of (VHS, two dvd's - different special features!, blu ray, download), and watch at least once a year, is The Long Good Friday. And I really love that film, but it didn't pop immediately into my head.
So, with that in mind, I thought I'd find out what everyone else's favourite films were - the first title to pop into your head, not a list, no prevarication. The answers were interesting:
Penny (Box Office / Usher) : Notting Hill
Zach (Box Office / Bar) : Inception
Phil (Stage Manager) : Psycho, "original version, obviously"
Mark (General Manager) : Cinema Paradiso
Sarah (Marketing Manager) : Singing In The Rain
Simon (Conferencing) : Taken
Debra (Administration) : Groundhog Day
Nina (Conferencing) : Seven Brides For Seven Brothers
Rita (Finance) : The Color Purple
Terry (Bar / Backstage) : V For Vendetta
Rose (Box Office) : Calamity Jane
Jaiminee (Marketing) : Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Louise (Usher / RollerCity Marshall) : Life Is Beautiful
Carmen (Usher / RollerCity Marshall) : Curse of the Golden Flower
Ahmed (I.T.) : Schindler's List
So, how many of those would be on your list? And what is your favourite film? Answers in the comments below, please...
