TWO-WORD MOVIE TITLES

Writing about AUGUST RUSH made me think of favorite two-word movie titles when I was trying to come up with an alphabet list to put me back to sleep (after family here and getting up at 5AM to see them off to catch a plane), with the caveat that the titles couldn’t start with an article, i.e. “the” or “a”—:

AUGUST RUSH

DRUGSTORE COWBOY
ELMER GANTRY
42ND STREET
GROUNDHOG DAY
HIGH NOON
