Favorite (Just ONE) Movie of all time

There have obviously been a lot of "favorite" film threads, but they all become lists of movies sometimes 10, 15 or 20 from people, and there is the argument of favorite versus best.

So my question is simple: Favorite Film.

The one you would be OK with watching over and over if you could never see another film. No lists, no 1A and 1B. You have to make the choice.

Was is your single, favorite film:

I'll start with one that likely will be on this list just once:

"Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House"

Remember, just ONE PICK.

Tie? No fair!

My pick would be the original, unaltered, Han-shoots-first version of "Star Wars." You can even leave off the "Episode IV" part.

I'm a horror film nut, so my pick is John Carpenter's remake of The Thing.
