Elizabeth Van Cleve's COMEDY CHOICES

Barefoot in the Park (1967)
TWENTY CLASSIC COMEDIES FROM A.F.I'S NOMINEES


It's frustrating watching award programs. A. F. I. nominates films that I'd never categorize a particular genre. They select their winners. I'd choose other films. I selected my twenty classic comedy favorites (released prior to 1972) from the 100 Years 100 Laughs nominees. It was tough.


  1. Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
  2. Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
  3. Barefoot in the Park (1967)
  4. Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
  5. The Egg and I (1947)
  6. Francis (1949)
  7. Holiday (1938)
  8. It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)
  9. Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House (1948)
  10. No Time for Sergeants (1958)
  11. The Parent Trap (1961)
  12. Pillow Talk (1959)
  13. The Quiet Man (1952)
  14. Singin' in the Rain (1952)
  15. Some Like It Hot (1959)
  16. Sullivan's Travels (1941)
  17. Teacher's Pet (1958)
  18. Theodora Goes Wild (1936)
  19. Whistling in the Dark (1941)
  20. Yours, Mine and Ours (1968)
