The Bridge on The River Kwai.

I've only seen Bridge on the River Kwai and A Passage to India and thought both were great. I'm hoping Lawrence of
Arabia
will come to the big screen at some point in Bellingham so I can see it in all its glory - at this point, I've only seen parts of the film on TV.

(I feel like I must have seen the two Dickens flicks at some point, but I don't remember them.)

Lawrence and Bridge are the only ones I've seen and I like them both a whole lot.

Love Lawrence and Kwai, thought Zhivago was OK. Need to see Brief Encounter.

Have to go with Bridge on River Kwai, as it is one of my all-time favorites.
