05- The Sting- 1973- Paul Newman and Robert Redford, Director- George Roy Hill— My dream cast Matt Damon, George Clooney- Director Robert Redford, or Steven Soderbergh

Have the same story line as the orginal. Same setting  to 1930’s Chicago.When a mutual friend is killed by a mob boss, two con men, one experienced and one young try to get even by pulling off the big con on the mob boss. The story unfolds with several twists and last minute alterations.

In this charming film based on the popular L. Frank Baum stories, Dorothy and her dog Toto are caught in a tornado’s path and somehow end up in the land of Oz. Here she meets some memorable friends and foes in her journey to meet the Wizard of Oz who everyone says can help her return home and possibly grant her new friends their goals of a brain, heart and courage.

03- The Shootist -1976- John Wayne, James Stewart, Richard Boone, Ron Howard, Lauren Bacall, Hugh O Brian,– Director Don Siegel,  Dream Cast–Kevin Costner, Sam Elliott, Zach Effron,Meryl Streep, John C Reilly, John Cusack—Director Unknown

John Bernard Books, a gunfighter approaching his 58th birthday, finds that he has rectal cancer and two months to live. He takes a room with Bond Rogers and her son, Gillom, to wait until death comes. Of course, his very presence starts off events in the town. The Marshal comes, prepared to die in a shootout, Gillom tries to idolize him, Bond first is disgusted and then pities him. Then, realizing that he will die in great pain, he comes up with an idea to go out with a bang. If this movie ever truly does get remade I will protest beyond all believe. I thought that this would be a great cast to do it.
