Do you remember that movie you could not stand to go a day without watching it? Do you remember which movie it was? I think mine was "The Last Unicorn" i loved that little movie. It was cute, it was a love story, and had one of my favorite mythical creature in it!

Mine was The Princess Bride and the Wizard of Oz. I just caught The Princess Bride tonight on television. It brought back memories of when I was small.

Two of my favorite movies from childhood were "The Neverending Story" and "Labyrinth". I vaguely remember seeing the Last Unicorn at least once and really enjoying it, but I don't remember it the way that i remember the two others that I previously mentioned. I *love* fantasy stories, as you can see! ^_^

I liked Transformers the movie when I was really young, but don't really remember it. My parents basically told me that one... The one I watched five million times was Back to the Future! I wanted to be MArty McFly so bad lol!

The last unicorn, princess bride, labyrinth.. I also absolutely loved 'legend'. The never ending story was awesome, though I always wondered if they'd ever let the child like empress grow up so she and sebastian could have a little never ending love story.

"Leave Her to Heaven" - image of publicity for the 1945 movie "Leave Her to Heaven", starring Gene Tierney and Cornell Wilde.  The movie was shot in Bar Harbor, Maine, not far from where I lived.
I come from a different generation that most other myLot users so my favorite childhood anything would probably not be known. However, in my day it was probably either a Shirley Temple or Mickey Rooney movie....there were so many I cannot pinpoint one in particular. Of course, there were also the Lassie movies, starring Elizabeth Tayler most of them I am sure I saw. Also Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland made lots of movies too and I probably saw all of them. Oddly the first movie I actually remember that I saw with my grandmother was in "Leave Her to Heaven" starring Gene Tierney, Cornell Wilde, Jeannie Crane and Vincent Price. The setting was Bar Harbor, Maine (not too far from where we lived) which attracted my grandmother to it as she had a sister-in-living where the film was shot. I remember her saying that she recognized many of the locations. Funny how that film crops up during my life time maybe it's because it's the first one I saw. The movie was made in 1945. I was about 10 at the time. Looking at the list of childrens' movies today makes me grateful that I was born when I was. So many movies were were made for all the family to see. Now this type of movie is in the minority....oh well.
