Virginia the Movie-Mogul has been busy, BUSY the last month compiling a list of inspirational movies that can be viewed on the Page above (For Email subscribers, you need to visit the actual site & click on ‘Movie List’ on the Menu Bar to view it : )

Kinda fun sorting through movies on the mind shelves the past month (& generating dinner conversation, ‘what’s YOUR favorite inspirational movie??’)  The thing is, lots of my favorite movies are not necessarily inspirational, believe me – i tried to think how “The Nightmare Before Christmas” could fit on this list (watched 4 times in the Movie Theater in the Middle East – because all my different friends NEEDED to see it, it was so AMAZINGLY AWESOME!) … and then there’s the new Star Trek (i am NOT a Trekkie, well, i WASN’T one until this movie came out!)… but i saw that one a few times in the Theater, too — & maybe that could be considered inspiring (Spock does change, sort of..)

Back to this list — i tried to think of movies we’ve seen that are inspiring – straight up (not circuitously through inspired Halloween Ghouls Taking Over Christmas or James Bond saving the world, AGAIN!)

Be sure to check out the Movie List & comment with your own favorite ‘inspirational’ movies… (the Entertainment Officer is always looking for evening viewing options!)

To start, here are 10 of Favorite Inspirational Movies (it’s kind of hard to pick a “Top Ten” especially as the 1st three are dead heat all-time favorite FAVORITES!…)

  1. The Keys to the Kingdom (1944) Gregory Peck, Vincent Price
  2. The Inn of the Sixth Happiness (1958) Ingrid Bergman, Robert Donat
  3. Chariots of Fire (1981) Ben Cross, Ian Charleson …
  4. The Sound of Music (1959) Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer
  5. Amazing Grace (2007) Ian Gruffudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Albert Finney
  6. Remember the Titans (2000) Denzel Washington, Wood Harris, Ryan Hurst
  7. Paradise Road (1997) Glenn Close, Pauline Collins, Frances McDormand
