    Old Favourites

    My favourite old movies are the original version of Psycho and Some Like It Hot. I first saw Psycho when I stayed with my aunt & uncle years ago and Some Like It Hot was on TV one night when I was home - my mum & I stayed up to watch it. I also remember thinking Tony...

    Old Movies And Simpler Times

    I think part of the enchantment with old movies is that there were clear morals and there was real magic.  Maybe the special effects weren't as great but the actors and actresses had to carry it then.  Not that I don't love recent movies too...I do.  But there...

    I saw The Thin Man yesterday

    and loved it. I had heard from someone else years ago about it and how people would make a drinking game out of watching it. Every time someone took a sip on screen you had to sip at home. I didn't understand what they meant until I saw it. I can see how anyone doing that would...

    I guess it started with a run of Abbot

    and Costello movies one summer as a kid. Then moved on to things like the Three Stooges, Laurel & Hardy, Buster Keaton and the like. It intrigued me to think that all those connected to them must be long gone by now! And made me wonder if their descendants had any idea just how...

    "I Can't Think About That Right Now. If I Do, I'll Go Crazy. I'll Think About That Tommorrow"

    Sometimes there’s nothing better than an old movie. Everything about them. The sound! The acting! The look.! I love them! One of my brothers is a fan of everything old. He was left to watch me a lot when I was a little girl and he would always watch the classics with me...

    I Lean Towards the Romantics

    Its a silly ideal, or so I'm told, but I love the sweet ones. It seems things were less complicated, although sometimes a bit boring:) However the men were gallant and brave and gentlemen and movies were made for entertainment, they weren't entirely realistic. I feel, for the...

    Black and White

    I love to just sit down and watch them. There's almost something sad about them all for some reason? I know it sounds crazy...either way I love just sitting down and listening to the music and reading along :)

    Four Daughters (1938)

    One of my favourite old movies of all time. My aunt saw it in the theatre as a teenager. She told me that Jeffrey Lynn was touted as the next new heartthrob, but from those first scenes of John Garfield's character playing the piano, there was magic. My aunt said that while Lynn...

    Can't Help Myself, I Have To Watch Certain Ones....

    Alfred Hitchcock "The Birds" I can't turn it off! "Jaw's" is another one. The list goes on and on. The first movies I watched in a theater was "Little Big Man" I was probably too young to have seen it, never the less, It's always been one of my all time favorites.

    old movie of the 60s. It was a beautiful movie. Very clean, very rich. It made me very happy. The older generation had so much beauty, talent and capability. We are not one tenth as capable as that. Old movies are gems. They fill us with enthusiasm and mirth. The songs are so...

    It's A Crazy World We Live In...

    Where anything could happen anyday. And that is why I love old movies.  (That line is from Casablanca, by the way.)  The classics...Philadelphia Story, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind are filled with wisdom about life.  And they take you back to a simplier, more innocent time...
