  2. Thanx for stopping by, Glenda. I am not quite sure what you mean by the statement "But if I did a Top 100 mine would be totally different than what I would chose," but it was still good to get some attention. See ya 'round the web.

  4. Good to see some Freaks love. I do love me some Bandwagon. That one just missed making the list. As for La Belle et La Bete, it actually surprised me when you said you would include that one, because I thought I had. Ah well, that must have been one that just missed. Love that film.

    Anyway, thanx for checking these out. See ya 'round the web.
