Hard to choose, but Bogart/Bacall in "The Big Sleep" are outstanding!

Love this! I'd go with His Girl Friday (1940).

I'm a sucker for all things Hawks, but......
This Movie above all is my top pick.
I re-watch this just for the "Elephant Walk" segment. Seen this movie maybe 10+ times and never grow tired of it.

TheMovieSmith,

So many great films that it is hard to choose. My tentative vote:
El Dorado (1967)

I recently saw O. Henry's Full House (1952) on TCM. It features five of O. Henry's favorites:
  1. "The Cop and the Anthem"
  2. "The Clarion Call"
  3. "The Last Leaf"
  4. "The Ransom of Red Chief"
  5. "The Gift of the Magi"
I highly recommend it.
