As an overwhelming number of you already know, judging from the comment count, the charming, witty, and too-sexy-for-his-shirt Ferrett asked yesterday what book you would memorize to preserve literature in a Farenheit 451 universe.
Well. Books aren't all there is to culture, you know. If civilization-as-we-know-it were destroyed, we would lose a lot more that we love. And only a dedicated priesthood of generous souls could save...the movies.
There exists already one such priest, in the form of Charles Ross, the performer of One Man Star Wars and One Man Lord of the Rings. Thanks to this dedicated fellow, these stories will not be lost to the ravages of anti-culturalism.
So what movie would you choose, and why? Remember, you have to perform the movie, not just give a synposis of it. Deep Throat may not be your best choice. It doesn't have to be mainstream, or a theatrical release. It just needs to be on film.
Remember ONE MOVIE! And not one that someone else already has. Greediness will be rewarded with mockery a la Ferrett.
I get to go first, of course. I would preserve "The Pirates of Penzance" because I'd have so much fun singing it.
(I'm not expecting nearly as big a response, but I thought it would be amusing.)
