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 is something nice about old movies.  I don't have to worry if there is going to be a questionable scene or a lot of swearing.  There is a charm and a simpleness that makes you feel just a little less jaded and cynical at least for awhile.  And in today's world, that's not such a bad thing.  I just got done watching Christmas in Connecticut...the old one with Barbara Stanwyck...simply charming!  Made me wish for simpler times.  Made me smile and feel warm and cozy at least for a little while.  :)

I'm so tired of violence, sex, drugs and swearing in today's movies.<br />
