Made a bet with my brother.. He said Gone With the Wind, I said the Godfather. We were both wrong, but I was closest. I believe they were #4 and #3. He never paid me the $5.

To see actors and actresses describe their movies and their thoughts while making these movies or watching other's great movies was the best. How Dustin Hoffman came to tears while discussing his preparation for the role of Tootsie, i mean, WOW.
