10 Favorite Movies From Childhood


Ten on Tuesday today is another one which will surely give away the approximate ages of the players. Given that one of my all-time favorites is one I saw in the movie theaters -- at the time of its initial release -- it won't be hard to place me.

Before I begin, please let me give a plug for the irreverant Jump One, Jump Twosday game I've got going. Scroll down to the next post or just click here. Hope you have fun!

1. Mary Poppins

2. Peter Pan

3. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original, naturally)

4. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

5. The Wizard of Oz (and, no, I wasn't around for its original play)

6. Swiss Family Robinson (because I so wanted to be them)

7. Yellow Submarine (although I now know I didn't get a lot of it)

8. It's a Wonderful Life

9. The Jungle Book

10. Oliver Twist

Don't forget to see others' lists! And don't forget to check out this week's Jump One, Jump Twosday.

Good list. I also liked Yellow Submarine as a kid, but I don't remember much these days but the blue meanies (is that what they were?). I was a kid. Anything that looked like a cartoon was an instant favorite.

Happy Tuesday!

I dreamed about tornadoes for months every year after the Wizard of Oz came on. I loved Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and was glad to get the DVD for my daughter.

When I was watching Yellow Submarine a few years back on DVD, all I could think was "Man, what were the Beatles smoking?" LOL. Nooo, Ringo, don't press the button.

Great choices for your top 10!

Thanks for stopping by!

I also had a list of movies for my Thursday Thirteen that related to American History.

I should post a list of my favorite 'quirky' films. Yellow Submarine is one of them.

Come again!

P.S. Did you say you liked Springsteen?

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
