And don't even mention Willy Wonka. We have it, and I lose an IQ point every time a sound wave from it reaches my ears. (c8

Good one; that was a hit. Couple of winces, but more laughs. Thanks, that's the idea.

Also, I forget the name, but Sp[encer Tracy played a Portugese fisherman, with Rodney McDowel in it.

Right on; George was a hit, as was Dudley Do-Right and Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. (You're jogging my memory; I should have written all these down.)

We always do well with comedies at our house. "Support Your Local Sherriff" is a cutie, (although Prudy does use the word "Damn" once, and although I DETEST Barbara Striesand she has one really cute movie "What's up Doc". Many Cary Grant movies are really cute too such as Bringing up Baby and Father Goose. Also if you like music my kids, believe it or not, really liked "The Pirates of Penzance" with Kevin Kline. It is all operetta but quite funny.

If you get movies from the early 60's with kids you can't really go wrong - it was a great time for family movies. Two that come to mind are "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "Magnificent men in their Flying Machine". We also like the original "Robin Hood" with Errol Flynn. I collect family movies like this, these are some we watch over and over again. Oh, also if you like Beatle music Help! is fun.

The Pixar films are good but oriented towards kids. Bug's Life in particular is VERY good. Pay attention to the scene in the Mexican hat when the lead grasshopper talks about keeping the ants in line - very much tied in to how the gov't keeps us sheep in line to be sheared.

I think you mean Captians Courageous--really good one.

A couple my kids liked:

Cloak and Dagger (a little scary in parts, but my kids could handle it from about age five)

Bugsy Malone (the guns shoot whipped cream)

The Black Stallion

Otis and Milo

Kidnapped

Shipwrecked

Treasure Island

Princess Bride

All those old Dean Jones Disney movies like: Love Bug; Blackbeard's Ghost, etc.

The Abbot and Costello movies

Ernest movies (if you have the stomach for them, most kids love them, but not much adult appeal)

"The Courage of Lassie" with a very young Elizabeth Taylor
Any Rogers and Hammerstein musical, such as "The King and I", "The Sound of Music", "South Pacific", etc.
"High Noon" with Gary Cooper (I didn't realize how big a fan I was of Gary Cooper!)
"Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison" with Deborah Kerr and Robert Mitchum
"Mrs. Miniver" with Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon
"Quo Vadis" with Deborah Kerr, Robert Taylor and a wonderfully evil Peter Ustinov

I forgot all about "Chicken Run". That's a great movie for kids, but I enjoyed it as well.

North by Northwest, although I can't recall if there's much shooting, and My Fair Lady.
