    Roman Holiday

    It's a love story of a princess and a reporter...No one beats Audrey Hepburn when she won the academy. A romantic love story for a romantic person like me who believes that fairy tale can happen though there might be a sad ending.

    You've Gotta See 'now Voyager'

    'Now Voyager' with Bette Davis is a black and white film you will never forget.  It is crystal clear on DVD.  You will, cry, cry, cry. It has to do with feeling like an outcast in your own family, and early film for such a topic. And for great fun, Mae West in 'I'm No...

    I love this movie.  Jimmy Stewart is incredible as sweet, amiable and quirky Elwood P. Dowd, whose best friend is a six-foot rabbit that goes by the name of Harvey.  My heart gets a little lighter whenever I watch this movie.  It warms me and takes all my worries...
