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!

None of them this sick and wrong to think that anyone would want classics like these flims to be burned.

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.
