Cops - Silent Buster Keaton Comedy Classic
If anyone ever asks me if there is ONE Buster Keaton movie to see, this would be the one (Altho', "The General" would be a close second and is also absolutely a must-see). Twenty-minutes of non-stop inspired comedy brilliance by The Master.

His Girl Friday - Romantic Comedy Adventure
It just doesn't get much better than this! Perhaps my all-time favorite screwball comedy. Clever dialog which is so brilliantly delivered at such a break-neck pace that it demands repeated viewing to catch all the jokes you might have missed on your previous viewing(s). Cary and Rosland's timing, delivery, vocal inflections and facial expressions are impeccable.

My Man Godfrey - Screwball Romantic Comedy
Powell at his most witty and urbane and Lombard at her most ditzy! Timeless, yet a perfect product of it's time with a social message story (that doesn't get in the way of the laughs) and absolutely wonderful casting-even down to minor roles. Perfection.
