theatrical release, just to observe the audience reaction, what film
would you pick & why? (sounds like a "Miss Film America" finalist
question doesn't it?)

It would also be interesting to have been at the first screening of Michael Powell's Peeping Tom, which so revolted audiences that it destroyed his career.

Yeh, I think The Exorcist and Star Wars would have been interesting ...
To vary it slightly I've often wondered about taking films 20+ years to the past so for instance people in the late 50's seeing Star Wars, it can be looked at for both the movie content aspect and the for instance the effects capability.
What would Starwars fans in the 80's see in say Avatar and so on.
Would expectations be raised and filmmakers up the ante in turn or would the effects just be technically incomprehensible ?
Maybe some films were like this - 2001 etc...

And had the incredible luck to see "Lawrence of Arabia" first run in one of the great Hollywood theaters.
I liked it...so did the rest of the audience...and the rest of the world.
