Martin Scorsese's guilty pleasures list

Given that this list appeared way back in 1978, it's still quite interesting. There are some more-or-less respectable Hollywood blockbusters (The Brothers Karamazov) and lighter but completely entertaining films (Road to Zanzibar) that should not cause any guilt. There are also fine examples of genres that aren't so respectable, but still quite good (Carry On Cleo, all of the Hammer films on the list.) There are also some turkeys on the list, both big budget flops (Exorcist II: The Heretic) and cheap B movies (The Wasp Woman, as much as I am drawn to such films myself.)

Yes, it's hard to defend Invasion U.S.A. as possessing any merit, so the great director's take on it would be interesting.
Some very interesting choices on that list. :)
