Loved The Heiress. Olivia deHavilland's transformation from sweet to embittered is a masterpiece.
So many great Bette Davis performances. All About Eve is a stand out.
The Miracle Worker was brilliant. Anne Bancroft and Patty Duke were tremendous as Annie Sullivan and her deaf/blind pupil Helen Keller. And long Days journey Into Night and Lion In Winter were Katharine Hepburn at her best.
Julie Christie deserves her Best Actress Oscar nomination for Away From Her. Her portrayal of an Alzheimer's victim is heart wrenching and true.

I was a quiet kid....but I sure loved watching things blow up:
"Towering Inferno" "Airport" "Earthquake" etc.
My younger brother and I decided we wanted to know what it was like being in an earthquake. Somehow we decided that rolling down the hill behind the house, in a cardboard box, would recreate the event.
But, being gentlemen, we sent our little sister down the hill first. We quickly learned what it felt like to be sprinters when Mom came flying outta the house after our hides.
