    My favorites are, 'It's a Wonderful Life'

    and 'To Kill a Mockingbird. The scripts and acting in these touch the souls and lives of our common family experiences and uncommon challenges of life. What old movies (or newer classics) move you to tears, joy, memories and other real stuff of the emotions of life?

    Old Movies Are The Best

    With all the options, I still find myself checking out TCM. I like film noir, westerns, comedy, drama, etc. Just something about B&W movies. I like color too. I like seeing the actors in early roles and the stories were well written. Speaking of color, I just watched "Once Upon a...

    Classic Art

    I dunno what it is, it must be in the way the actors move. Nowadays the shots are becoming seconds long. Shot of this guy's face, shot of the other guy's face...it's so fast paced. Our attention spans have definitely shrunk. The actresses back then also seem so much more...

    Okay. So, I need help finding an old movie,

    well, I assume it's old anyway. Maybe early 2000's or somewhere in the 90's. I saw it on YouTube awhile back so I'm guessing not a lot of people know about it. It's about a girl who's name I can't remember and a boy, totally opposite from her, who's like a labeled "Bad Boy...

    Bogie Sleepers

    As far as the Bogart movies I like you can "round up the usual suspects" But there are two lesser known Bogie movies from the fifties I think are worth seeing. Beat the Devil came out in 1953 with less than rave reviews by the public and the critics. It didn't fit any known...

    I love b&w movies from the 30's

    and 40's. The Thin Man movies with William Powell and Myrna Loy and "Screwball Comedies" like The Front Page and It Happened One Night are some of my favorites. I especially love how the women are portrayed-tough, sexy and beautiful.
