As far as I know, Freddie liked movies (not as much as ballet or opera) and his favourite movies were ones that starred Liz Taylor, Liza Minelli, etc. His absolute favourite was one from the 30's or 40's but I can't remember the title.

On the Killer Queen vid on Greatest Flix (like you said), it says it's Some Like It Hot. Then again, it also says Roger's birthday is the 20th of July.

He was also a huge fan of The Marx brothers.
He was granted permission to use the names of 2 of their movies for albums:
ANATO and its brother ADATR

He'd occasionally check out the theatres with Paul Ruebens. In '91, they both decided they'd done that enough, and moved on to other things.

There's a funny story in Jim Hutton's book about the two of them going to see Indiana Jones at a theater in New York City, and the reactions of some of the people therein.

Also, I think it said "Imitation of Life" was one of his favorites.

Plus he left the cinema in Munich when he realized that the "Neverending Story" was shown in German without subtitles in English. Very amusing :)

I thought it was David Does Dallas. I had to laugh about the Neverending Story though. I thought for a moment he'd have sat down, saw the title come on and walked out in a huff saying "I don't have time for a neverending story - how the fuck do they expect to show this movie more than once?"
