The following titles are now streaming for your pleasure.We've freeze framed them at entirely random places and shared the first thing that came up as is our whimsical practice.Do you have any desire to see (or revisit) these based on this evidence?


Breakfast at Tiffany's(1961)
LOL.Totally forgot about this sly partners in crime shopping scene.Have you seen this recently?It's so great but for every cutaway to Mickey Rooney (sigh).Nominated for five Oscars including Best Actress.(It's actually kind of a surprise that this hasn't been remade since it was originally envisioned for Marilyn Monroe and could have obviously been an entirely different sort of movie.)
