Re: Favorite comedy & drama of all-time?

Comedy: Smokey And The Bandit

Drama: Maybe Godfather is too hack (hack meaning obvious, not meaning bad), so I'll say Schindler's List.

Re: Favorite comedy & drama of all-time?

Comedy: Dr. Strangelove (1964)

Drama: Fail-Safe (1964)

(I'm going the double-feature route for my picks, although it is best to watch the drama 1st: it both makes the drama work better and the comedy work a lot better that way)
