Despite my distaste for Rob Reiner, I freely admit that When Harry Met Sally is a very funny film. Crystal is capable of being hilarious, simply saying, "Hello". And Meg Ryan made a perfect duo...

Buster Keaton for me by a large margin. I've seen oodles of Chaplin films, and some of them are classics.

But Chaplin's stories were in the main cute, and tugged at the heart strings. Whereas...

The Lady Eve was a cute comedy, although there are a dozen+ funnier screwball comedies. It was obviously another plum for Barbara S., who had gotten very popular by 1941. I've seen it several...
