    One Of My Guilty Pleasures...

    I adore old movies.  If it's black & white and the credits run at the beginning I'm hooked!  Some of my favorites are the World War I & II propaganda films...Destination Tokyo, White Cliffs of Dover, Waterloo Bridge, Casablanca, the list goes on and on.  And don't get me...

    Breakfast At Tiffany'S

    I love that movie since I saw it. It was funny, with a great story and it's one of my fav because of Audrey Hepburn. She will always be a classic fashion icon, she shows so much elegance and style throughout the movie, I think I identify with her character a lot. Also the end was...

    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...

    There Are Some Great Old Movies Out There

    There are some great old movies! They don't need to be neglected or tossed aside for being old. I like to watch them and see them preserved! Old films are important too. Some are just brilliant.

    Some people don't appreciate old movies.

    12 Angry Men (1957)

    The best courtroom drama ever (although technically it's a jury room drama) and it holds up pretty well today. Henry Fonda votes "not guilty" and stands alone against 11 others who are totally convinced that a young Hispanic boy fatally stabbed his father with a switchblade knife...

    I Don't Know What It Is

    I don't know what it is, but the look of the old movies is what does it for me. Doesn't matter if it's Baby Jane, or Cleopatra. The sets, the costumes, the feel, is all I need to have a perfect evening.

    Living the Story With Them

    I think my most favorite is "It's A Wonderful Life" with Jimmy Steward and Donna Reed. It was so very good and captured my attention from beginning to end. Others have the same hold on me are many. Many of the Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day movies were like that for me. A...

    It was said that love heals all wound. In the 1700s no one from the British council liked to talk much, they were so quite. I entered the councils room and found blocked people. All quite and serious. I, for myself was a rebel. Yes, I wasn't appreciated for that but I was proud...

    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...

    Nothing Like the Classics

    There is something about the classics.  The old black and white makes you use your imagination a little bit. One of the best of all-time was Casablanca.  Something about the way that Bogart handled himself that was really cool.

    My favorite movie as a child was "The Bad Seed".

    The main character Rhoda used to scare me so bad haha. I really didn't want her to get a chance to kill the landlord. The end was always the most chilling to me, or when she took her shoes out of the incinerator and tip toed across the floor. Gives me the creeps.

    The Old Time Comedy!

    I have a fond appreciation of the slapstick that was found in the early days of Hollywood. Charlie Chaplin is just hilarious, and the Marx Brothers are similar to my sense of humour, with derailing, and taking things the other way. I want to watch more classics!

    I Love Movies From Golden Age of Hollywood

    From gorgeous Technicolor spectacles like Gone with the wind or My Fair Lady to Gaslight gothic like (what else?) Gaslight, Lodger and Hangover square,  I love old movies. They had class, style, clean literate dialogue... I hate most new movies made after 1969!

    Two Favorites

    Love "Double Indemnity" with Fred McMurray in the role of a villain (he wasn't just Ward Cleaver) and "Lolita", probably Stanley Kubrick's best. Deep, weird, beautifully acted. James Mason and Peter Sellers are stellar.
