While Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi came next on 11 times, alongside Mary Poppins.

The survey also found that 67 per cent of Brits are using their time in lockdown to re-watch their favourite movies and TV shows.
It turns out that 79 per cent felt that rewatching movies made them feel nostalgic and comforted.
While 36 per cent said the activity helped them forget about their worries and anxieties.
Marina Storti, NOW TV’s Managing Director, said: “It’s clear to see that as a nation, we find watching our favourite films and TV shows to be the ultimate comfort blanket in times of worry and anxiety.”

They added: “There’s nothing like an old classic to make us feel nostalgic and eased, so it’s not surprising we’ve been enjoying re-watching our favourites, even in the bathtub.”
Last Christmas, NOW TV released an unauthorised parody in Die Hard… ON ICE.
The video is only a minute long, but it’s certainly a hilarious spectacle.
Hollywood stunt artist Tom Boney (Maleficent: Mistress of Evil and Dunkirk) stars as Bruce Willis’ John McClane.
While four-time British silver medallist figure skater Thomas Paulson takes on Alan Rickman’s villainous Hans Gruber.
The trailer features take-offs of some of Die Hard’s most famous scenes from Yippee-Ki-Yay to McClane’s slithering through an air vent.
The streaming service was also behind that Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum statue, which appeared by Tower Bridge in London a couple of years ago.
The vast likeness was of the famous scene where Dr Ian Malcolm is reclining with his chest bared.
