The Van Gogh-Goghs present:
Our Favorite Movies
We Van Gogh-Goghs love movies. Especially with all these new "talkies" everyone's raving about. So we decided to make a list of some of our favorite movies for you. With six stubborn guys with terrible, terrible memories in the group, this was a lot harder than it might seem. But we think we got the gist of them. But if we got a name or tiny detail wrong, please forgive us. Enjoy!
