Clooney's Favorite Films Inspire Mini Movie Trailer Marathon: From President's Men to The Sting

Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood October 3, 2011 at 5:32AM

Happy Monday from George Clooney! He's shared his 100 favorite films (from 1964-1976, "the greatest era in filmmaking by far"). Among the collection (which he's gifted to friends for Christmas) are the following classics (it won't surprise you that Clooney has good taste): All The President's Men (also a favorite of Aaron Sorkin's), American Graffiti, Badlands, Bonnie & Clyde, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, Chinatown, A Clockwork Orange, Cool Hand Luke, Dog Day Afternoon, Easy Rider, The Exorcist, Godfather I & II, The Graduate, Harold and Maude, Jaws, Last Tango in Paris, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, Midnight Cowboy, My Fair Lady, Network, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Rosemary's Baby, The Sting, Taxi Driver and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?. If that list doesn't make you want to have a movie marathon, what possibly could? It also makes one wonder what happened to the art of the movie poster. We've put together a mini-marathon of their trailers below. You're welcome:
