Black and White Movies

When I was a kid, I used to stay up and watch the Late Show.. I remember the apartment building and the music that played as the lights in the windows went out in the building before the movie started. It was always such a thrill to me. I loved the music. I know, it' lame...but. LOL

I watch old movies all the time, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fox Movie Channel. American Movie Classics got ruined when they started running commercials!

Old movies are the best. They were clean, wholesome and you're not afraid to let the kids watch!

Oh and the Little Rascals! They were always my favorite!

Along with the Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland movies, my favourites are also the Spencer Tracy/Katherine Hepburn movies. Man what classics!!

I agree with you Harel! There's nothing to compare, anywhere! It seems we have lost our way for the sake of 'progress.' Not to say I don't enjoy a current movie now and then but, I had to buy the Laurel and Hardy DVD Babes in Toyland to watch during the holidays. They jut don't show it anymore! :-( Who can beat the Marx Brothers or Andy Hardy? Man, they just don't make them like that anymore!

You Re soooooooooooo right! I am a huge fan of film noir and generally old Hollywood movies. I still howl with Lucy and The Little Rascals. Can anyone tell me who today can compete with the likes of Laurel and Hardy and even The Three Stooges for heavens sake.<br />

As for Disney................NOTHING can compare to the originals like The Lady and The Tramp, Bambi, Snow White.<br />
The Little Mermaid and the like are just not up to par.

hahaha! They were some of the best ever! Oh Alfalfa!
