It's Cold And Dark Early Outside On Roosevelt Island - Warm Up With A Good Local Hero Movie, What Else Do You Recommend?

One of my all time favorite movies is Local Hero

starring Peter Riegert and Burt Lancaster. Riegert plays a Houston oil executive working for Lancaster. Riegert goes to Scotland to buy a small village to be used as a refinery but the negotiations don't go quite as expected with the locals.

Oh, there's also a rabbit with two names and watch the sky for the Northern Lights but remember, you can't eat the scenery.

Here's the trailer

and if you like that, watch the whole movie which has a great musical score from Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.

Tell us your favorite movie.  If you wish, put a video link to it in the comment box and we can vote for our favorites.
