Can we allow “childhood” to go up to about age 14 for this purpose? OK, I vote yes. Some are older than I am and I saw them on TV (with commercials, in the pre-cable days). And this list is not ranked in order – it’s just 10 I remember well from that time period.
- The Wizard of Oz
- The Music Man
- Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
- Star Wars (now known as “Episode IV”)
- My Fair Lady
- Gone With the Wind
- Lady and the Tramp
- The Apple Dumpling Gang
It was actually a stretch to come up with 10 – how sad is that? (Don’t answer…) I think I was more into TV than movies as a kid, and reading more than either one.
