The Guardian asked 52 staffers and others to nominate their favourite comfort film, one they turn to over and over again.

What is your favourite comfort film?

Me, I turn regularly to Some Like It Hot. Or anything with Cary Grant in it.

Doris Day's Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson. Lighthearted and hilarious.

Oh we love that. I want to be like they are at the end. And the guitar bit at the school concert is wonderful

Any Agatha Christie films. I love the era and find it nostalgic and comforting
