What historical films are your guilty pleasures....you secretly love them but hesitate to admit it to just anyone!

My all-time winner in this category would be "The Vikings" with Tony Curtis, Kirk Douglas, and Janet Leigh.
Remember the old crone throwing the bones, watching Eric in the crab pool, listening to the "Valkyries"....Odin's daughters......singing as they turn the tide and save him?
Remember the hokey amputated arm that was twice as long as his other one?
Remember Ernest Borgnine's look of mad triumph as Eric throws him the sword when he gets pitched into the wolf pit? (reason for Eric's loss of limb!)
Remember the neat knife-throwing episode with the adultress?
I could go on, but the bell has rung.....

"You will find them.....in the Valley......of the lepers!"

For years, I counted that as my all-time favorite movie. The climactic healing scene in the thunderstorm at the end will still give me chills....

How about the original Errol Flynn "Robin Hood"? The shifty look his eyes do when he is cornered in the sheriff's dining hall!

Love it! "I'm on this side...I'm on that side....it just ain't that critical."

"I am Iningo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!"

"Iconceivable!!!"

What is the name of those swamp creatures again?

And how about "The Ten Commandments".......or better yet, "Sodom and Gomorra" with Stewart Granger as Lot!

R.O.U.S.es? Rodents of Unusual Sizes. I don't believe they exist at all... Well, with the one exception of Carmichael...

Mr. President, you can't just let the Russian Ambassador in the war room! He-he might see the Big Board!

Another great movie he was in was The Linguine Incident! If you haven't seen it I recomend it... If you don't like it, well I'm sorry, I haven't seen it in about 6 years, and I remember liking it at the time...
