  2. John says:

    This was the Rosalind Russell version. Just as campy, but without people busting into song.


  3. angela says:

    some good ones here…thou can never remember if Auntie Mame or Mame is with Lucille Ball… both are fun for different reasons ~


  4. H.E. ELLIS says:

    I loved the one for the Hindenburg. I think that may be the only movie I haven’t seen. I think I need to get out more.


  5. Kayjai says:

    Sadly…I’ve not seen any of these movies. *sigh* I must try…I think I almost watched crazy, stupid, love…then SOMEBODY turned it off and my short attention span kicked in. Crazy, Stupid Me….
