Which DVD would you have Bill Murray sign?

Tomorrow I will be able to have Bill Murray sign any one of his DVD's that I have.

I work in a bank where he is a customer and know he will be here tomorrow as I actually just spoke to him.

So I ask the great and wise DVD Talker's here, which one of his movies would you have him sign??

I have Ghostbusters, Meatballs, Stripes, Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation, Life Aquatic (CC), Rushmore and Royal Tenenbaums (CC), I think couple others that I can't recall right now. You know that he enjoyed making and doesn't detest.

I am thinking a Criterion, but what do you think and with what type of pen/marker and should it be on the outer case or the cover art?

Please help!

I would have him sign Lost In Translation, being that it was the film that he deserved an Oscar for.

Use a Sharpie, on the actual cover art itself.

I'd go for the two Criterions in your list as well. And definitely have him sign the cover art, not the outer case, which could be lost/replaced. And with a Sharpie, black I guess. A color that contrasts the colors used in the cover art.

Hmm...I never thought I'd compare Bill Murray with kvrdave.

Oh, and I'd have him sign The Life Aquatic. The cover art is simple enough for his signature to really stand out on that light blue ocean. (I'm refering to the "drawing" side of the cover art)

If you have the Ghostbusters green double pack, I'd have him sign the inner booklet. If not, then Lost in Translation.

Groundhog Day. I'd place that in his top 3 best. But for resell value, I'd go with a Criterion.

Better bring a camera with you to photograph him doing the deed (signing that is). Only if you plan to resell them though. On the other hand, I'm not sure if he'll find it a bit too much.

From a purely aesthetic standpoint, I'd go with the Criterion Rushmore. It's lighter in color, and is pretty sparse, so his autograph would show up the best on that one, in my opinion.

I'd say Ghostbusters of those. I own 11 Bill Murray movies FWIW, but Rushmore, Ghostbusters, and/or Quick Change would be my choices.

I envy you. Bill Murray's the freakin' man; my sister-in-law bumped into him at Monmouth Park Racetrack (the Jersey Shore's premier race track for non-Tristaters) and he said something to her like "You trying to hit me with your butt or something?"
