30 Day Movie Challenge - Day 3: Favorite comedy

Day 3: Favorite comedy - Do I go with Bringing Up Baby (1938)? My mother's favorite movie, shown to me at a very young age: 

The Man With Two Brains (1983) - a movie I was probably too young to see when I did. Therefore, it delights me to this day.

The Bed Sitting Room (1969)? - which was high on my to-see list, but that I couldn't track down until three years ago. Practically every line of dialogue is a punchline.

 Or, most probably, His Girl Friday (1940). Which is still and hopefully will be one of the funniest scripts delivered by two master actors. This is the movie that infused all of my adult comedy writing.
