The results to my poll: "If you were sick which film would you want to watch?" are in.
Coming in last place with 0 votes was the only silent on the list: City Lights
Four other films managed to sneak by with 1 vote each:
All About Eve (I have a hunch this one was saved by Lolita)
Singin' In The Rain (My youngest brother wishes to express his thanks to the person who voted)
His Girl Friday (This one tops the list of my favorite comedies and I often watch it when I am sick, but it's not my absolute, absolute favorite sick film.)
The next candidate, Anything Hitchcock got a little farther with 2 votes. I know it isn't exactly a single film, but really it is hard to choose just one Hitchcock to watch!
Two films received 3 votes each:
The Thin Man
And Roman Holiday
The grandest epic ever made (and one of my personal least favorites) Gone With The Wind finished with a respectable 4 votes.
Coming in second place with 5 votes is It Happened One Night
And the winner with an impressive 7 votes (considering how many choices there were) is none other than the fabulous film noir:
I actually don't remember which one I voted for. It was either IHON or Laura. Both are indispensable when I'm sick. As are many of those on the above list. I tried to include films from many genres: Comedy, drama, epic, musical, Hitchcock (truly his own genre), romance, film noir.
Hope to see you again in my next poll!
