    Yours, Mine and Ours starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.

    Their characters were both widowed and they got married and between the 2 of them they had 18 kids. Kind of turned into real life for me. DH & I had both been divorced and we had 10 kids between the two of us. Ended up adopting one more after we were married

    I wanted to add another one but I loved The Benji Movie. I was obsessed with Benji even had books on him.

    My family loved that movie. I remember seeing it as a Saturday matinee at the theatre and then later when it started showing up on TV would watch it every time!!!

    Another one the "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" with Don Knotts. Would watch it every time. It was spooky funny to the under 12 set.

    And of course the Saturday Night Creature Feature movies like Crowhaven Farm with Hope Lange

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065594/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    And of course the Wizard of Oz. I would watch any of the above again and enjoy it.

    My favorite scene in The Ten Commandments is when the old woman is greasing the stones and gets her robe caught....as a kid I was on the edge of my seat!

    Another I always loved was Jason and the Argonauts (1963 version).

    You’re correct. It was Escape to Witch Mountain and Return from Witch Mountain. I would watch either, or both, whenever they were on.

    My favorite was Best Little Whorehouse in Texas with Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton. We watched and sang along with that movie. I was probably 11 and my brother was 9. We had no real understanding at that time what the movie was actually about but we loved all the singing and dancing and costumes.

    we got a VCR when I was 13--so seeing something more than once was pretty much only if it was on TV yearly or some such. Ones that were on TV for me to rewatch that I loved and looked for:

    The Sound of Music
    The Bad News Bears
    CandleShoe


    and the two that I loved in the theatre, so much so that I was gifted soundtracks, were:

    The Mupper Movie
    Annie

    A lot of the same ones already listed - Sound of Music, Annie, and many Disney movies. - Did anyone mention The Incredible Journey yet? That was one of my favorites.

    I was obsessed with The World's Greatest Athlete in 1973 when I was 13. I loved the story and comedy but probably mostly because of Jan Michael Vincent in a loincloth.
