Our Favorite Family Movies

My husband loves movies, especially classic movies. I do too. I've already posted a list of some of my favorite black and white movies here. My husband has been making a list of movie recommendations for his friends, so today I'm sharing his list. We prefer clean movies, and these are clean enough for us.

How about you. Do you have a recommendation that's not on our list?


  1. Wow! That's a long list! To be perfectly honest, I'd say I've watched only just a little above half of those movies, but I do have favorites among the ones that I did. The classic Academy Awards winners like Ben-Hur and Casablanca are total works of art, but I also love light-hearted animation and fantasy adventure flicks like Toy Story and the Harry Potter series. Anyway, thank you so much for sharing!
