My favorite movies - 1974
1974 is another year that I cannot pick one favorite out of so many good ones, so I chose my top 4 plus an "honorable mention". In just these five films, I think everybody in Hollywood made it onto the screen. Each one has a stellar cast, whether comedy, drama or action. How many actors and actresses can we name that did NOT appear in one of these!
Blazing Saddles starring Mel Brooks, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn, Gene Wilder and everybody else.
Young Frankenstein starring Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman and everybody else.
The Towering Inferno starring Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, Faye Dunaway and everybody else.
Earthquake starring Charlton Heston, George Kennedy, Ava Gardner and everybody else.
Murder on the Orient Express (honorable mention) starring Michael York, Sean Connery, Lauren Bacall and everybody else.
