3. Gulliver's Travels

Description: This is an animation classic! Gulliver's Travels was released in 1939 for the big screen and is viewed as a must see classic! Snow White from Disney was released in 1937 and this was the answer from The Fleischer Brothers of Popeye, Superman, and Betty Boop fame! The animation is as good as it gets, so join Gabby and his Lilliputian friends as they deal with this huge giant named Gulliver. Of course this tale has been rewritten from Jonathan Swift's original masterpiece, and somehow mixed with a dash of shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. If you get a chance, see the Gulliver remake with Ted Danson, very entertaining.

And you said - if you move the darn cat! Legend or true? This video clip Johnny doing Hamlet with aggressive product placements in the shakespearean dialogue. Elizabeth Taylor jousts with Johnny and comes out on top.

6. Rules of the Game, The

Description: Jean Renoir's Rules of the Game is one of the greatest films ever made. As you might already know, Jean Renoir was the son of the remarkable impressionist painter, Auguste Renoir - whose paintings are so beautiful and glorious that they are actually worth the millions that they sell for today. This film is perhaps Jean Renoir's finest work, though some might prefer his other masterpiece, La Grande Illusion, also available on this site. Unlike Grande Illusion that is a heavy film about the tragic ironies of war, this film is hilarious satire about the fading French aristocracy and a wonderful portrayal of the human comedy of love, marriage, and relationships.

Great movie, fine acting, and filmed in Britain.
