I joked today on Facebook that I was going to commemorate Earth Day by posting a list of great movies that had the word “earth” in the title.

A completely different story.
There’s Dirty Dancing, of course. And Dirty Harry. The Dirty Dozen. Even Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, to name just a few.
In the movie biz, it appears ‘dirt’ beats ‘earth’ by a mile.
