(Newser) – Who needs debates? The Washington Times rounds up the GOP candidates' favorite movies:

  • Herman Cain: The Godfather. (Yes, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza winked when he answered.)
  • Newt Gingrich: "Probably Casablanca."

  • Rick Perry: Immortal Beloved. The most offbeat choice comes from the Texas guv, who favors this 1994 biopic of Beethoven.
  • Mitt Romney: O Brother Where Art Thou, he told the New York Times.
  • Rick Santorum: Field of Dreams, he said when pressed to pick just one. (It's in Iowa after all.)
