The Librarian


I first saw this movie when I was 15 or 16 and it was love at first viewing. All these many years later, I still adore it ... not only for its blackest of black humour and the sterling performances by actors who were obviously having a tremendously good time with their roles, but also for the fact that, unusually, the feline co-star is given its share of great camera moments right along with the humans (this is the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" cat, performing under a pseudonym)

Oh, and Vincent Price's face when he asks "Is there no morality left in this world?" cracks me up every time, no matter how often I watch this. (Yes, it sounds like a it's a serious line, but in the context of the plot and his character ... hilarious)
