Musicals: 1776. Usually can't stand musicals, but this movie grabs me every time it's on TV, and i usually pull out the DVD and watch on the 4th of July. Not completely accurate historically, but very entertaining. Especially Howard Da Silva as Ben Franklin and William Daniels as John Adams.
Ditto. Especially William Daniels as John Adams. He was fantastic.
There was a nice little reference to Daniels' Adams in one episode of St Elsewhere.
I know that there's some horror movie that I do love, but I can't remember it! Even asking my husband. He's my external hard drive.
