    12 Angry Men (1957)

    I had little responsibility growing up.

    My only regular chore was dishes after supper, which I actually sort of enjoyed. I'd watch the sun setting out the window and the birds in the backyard and sing whatever was stuck in my head. Looking back, I'm surprised they never put a halt to the singing as the house was small...

    Stalag 17 with William Holden,

    directed by Billy Wilder. The movie takes place in a German prisoner of war camp. Holden plays an unprincipled scrounge who becomes the reluctant hero. One of the best films I've seen.

    Sometimes I do...I've been trying to watch

    "Gaslight" ever since I found out what "gas lighting" means. I found out here on EP from another member about this movie, and that's where this phrase came from, this old movie. The mentally and emotionally abusive behaviour of a spouse or partner or "friend" even can lead one...
