————————-
Personally, I’m not surprised that It”s a Wonderful Life is number 1. What I’m surprised by is how many recent films are included on the list. It makes me wonder what would happen if the American Film Institute updated the Greatest 100 Moies of All-Time List.

Also, I’m having issues uploading pictures. So it may be while before I can fix that and it’s going to irritate me if I can’t.

  1. I watched most of the program, which was very good. I didn’t agree with all of the choices, like putting Rocky before Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, but overall I was happy with AFI’s choices for inspirational movies.
