I was going to post this list on another thread on another board, but as that thread was inexplicablely closed, I thought I post the list here, as not to waste it. Thus, here are my favourite films, that I saw as a child. And, more or less, in the order in which I saw them . . .

Bambi (1957)
Roy Rogers
Trapeze
The Fly (1958)
The Sheepman
The Vikings
The Gunrunners
Have Rocket Will Travel
Hole in the Head
Son of Robin Hood
tom thumb
Operation Petticoat
Nikki, Wild Dog of the North
Snow White and the Three Stooges
Swiss Family Robinson
In Search of the Castaways

Of course, this list invariablely dates me, but at the risk of dating everyone else, what were your favourite films as a child?

My early memories of theatrical viewings are (not in any particular order):

* THE WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ (super cheap and terrible . . . and I know own the DVD from "Something Weird").

* WILLARD

* HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS

* THE CHRISTMAS THAT ALMOST WASN'T (I have this DVD, too!)

Early drive-in memories include:

* PINOCCHIO

* DR. NO / FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE / GOLDFINGER triple feature

* THE EXORCIST

* THE GODFATHER

* NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA

* BEN

And some favorites I watched repeatedly on TV when I was a kid:

* JOURNEY TO THE SENTER OF THE EARTH

* WAR OF THE WORLDS

* THE BLOB

* THEM!

* LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS


Ah, the memories . . .

.the LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE


Ooooh . . . I forgot about this one.  I saw it at the drive-in on a double bill with THE OTHER. 
I wish I had seen Legend of Hell House in the theater, its my favorite haunted house movie.

Some of my favorites growing up

Robin Hood (Disney, 1st film I saw in the theater, the 2nd was King Kong (1976)Thumbdown)
The Jungle Book
Star Wars
The Wizard Of Oz
Any Godzilla/kaiju related movie was always a treat
Bedknobs And Broomsticks
Golden Voyage Of Sinbad
Sinbad And The Eye Of The Tiger
Jason And The Argonauts
King Kong (1933)
The Black Hole

The majority of the films I saw during the 70's were at the drive-in. Sadly there is only one left in Georgia where I live, but it has B-Movie festivals several times a year which is a plus.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os∑mo∑sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
