    Default Oscar for Best Picture Ever

    I was thinking about my old crew the other day....I remember one slow day at the firehouse we thought if they ever gave an Oscar for the best picture of all time...what would it be???

    We thought of some great flicks, but all agreed none we mentioned were worthy of this title.

    If you were able to vote for ONE movie that would be deemed "Greatest Picture of ALL Time"....

    What would your pick be??

    While I agree "the Saints" is a great movie, but not an all time great,.

    I would have to go with Lawerence of Arabia or The Quite man

    There was one of the Pink Panther movies that is a favorite of mine.

    favorite line: " Does your dog bite? ... No my dog does not bite" Inspector Clouseu reaches to pet the dog, the dog growls and tries to bite him "I thought you said you dog did not bite! ...That's not my dog."

    (all done in cheesy French accent)

    love that movie
