Last night I talked to Krysta about movies. Her favorite actress is Audrey Hepburn (which makes sense because Krysta kind of resembles her), and she mentioned that I should see Funny Face. I told her I’d add it to my list (and I did), and she said that her “list” is simply the AFI Top 100. After consulting the list (and deciding that I can’t count movies I’ve only partially seen or that I saw when I was too young to understand), I realized that I’ve seen thirty-five:

6. THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)
7. THE GRADUATE (1967)
10. SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (1952)
11. IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)
14. SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959)
15. STAR WARS (1977)
17. THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951)
21. THE GRAPES OF WRATH (1940)
22. 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
23. THE MALTESE FALCON (1941)
25. E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982)
26. DR. STRANGELOVE (1964)
30. THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)
31. ANNIE HALL (1977)
34. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962)

57. THE THIRD MAN (1949)
58. FANTASIA (1940)
59. REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (1955)
60. RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK (1981)
62. TOOTSIE (1982)
68. AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (1951)
71. FORREST GUMP (1994)

She’s only seen twenty-something. How many have you seen?
