The iternal problem. Already we are into choices of three from one. I think for me, it would have be something like The Great Escape. However, I could not just settle with 1 desert island disc. It would have to be a top 5 at the minimum.

Gotta be Star Wars. I have seen that one movie, 641 times at last count. I used to watch it once a week. I have every version of that movie ever made. I even have a copy on betamax.
