  1. Just noticed Matt has picked 2 Tennessee Willams films so far. Are any of you fans of his other films? There were some good ones – Baby Doll, Fugitive Kind(Brando again), Sweet Bird of Youth(Newman again), This Property Is Condemned.

    1. I don’t know about the others in our group, but Baby Doll might be on my list. It’s a close one for top 100.
