We can get rid of the movie Yankee Doodle Dandy. Now getting rid of the song, on the other hand, would make me angry.

That's not something to brag about.

I gotta go with Grapes of Wrath -- overly preachy and not one of Ford's best.

Yankee Doodle Dandy, it's not that bad but compared to the other three, it's got no chance.

The only one I might miss is The Godfather. I guess I don't care much for the classics.

I never really gave a shit for Yankee Doodle Dandy so it's the obvious choice.

Call me Scrooge, but I voted for IAWL.

It's the voice. I can't stand the voice. Everything I hear Zuzu Bailey talk I want to yank the wings off of an angel.

How could anyone who has actually seen it vote for The Grapes of Wrath ?

Yankee Doodle Dandy. Seeing public enemy number 1 singing and dancing just aint right.

Instead of Yankee, I should have put Jaws instead. Then it might have been more difficult.

I'm surprised at all the Yankee-haters. I was enthralled by that film when I first saw it last Fourth of July. The songs, the dance-moves....very inspiring.

I think we all should be able to see the movies listed before making a decision. Yankee Doodle Dandy is a classic..

But It's a Wonderful Life bugs the shit out of me. Send it to hell!

You just answered your own question. You put a musical up against 3 other non-musicals and 9 times out 10 the musical will get the axe.

Yankee Doodle Dandy. I'm not a fan of dancing or singing.
