  1. Nice to hear a little recap of previous picks to see where Bobby stands on them. As far as gaslight goes, I’ve heard the original British film is better. Apparently MGM bought the rights to remake it and tried to destroy all prints of the original! Crazy. This is the 2nd George Cukor film picked btw, Patrick also chose Philadelphia Story.
