Great TV special with great movies
6 October 1999 | by Rose-35See all my reviews

This was a great tv special. I thought that The Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind or Casablanca would have gotten #1. (Honestly I didnt like Casablanca and havent seen GWTW) Total shock when they said Citizen Kane. My personal fav's from the list were Bringing up Baby, The African Queen and The Philadelphia Story.
