Classic movies - Page 2

post #31 of 41
I really love Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, The Maltese Falcon, Rear Window, West Side Story, Psycho, The Haunting, and Mary Poppins! Those are just some of my favorite classics!

Any movie with Danny Kaye, Bob Hope, Fred Astaire, or Bing Crosby are my favorites!

Although, my all-time favorite would have to be White Christmas.

Now, please keep in mind that I am only 21 and I LOVE oldies, most people my age have never even heard of the old movies, it's so sad, they are really missing out.

Oh yeah, I also love Westside Story and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers!

The real classic movies are still new in this house (our cable only brought in Turner Classic Movies less than a year ago), so I'm still catching up, but I really like Whatever Happened To Baby Jane. I've seen it 3 times already and I can't get tired of it. Wait Until Dark (with Audrey Hepburn) was good too, and, of course, Charlie Chaplin's movies are great classics (only seen The Circus so far, though... lol). But other than that, no other old movie sticks out in my mind (I saw the original King Kong, but that movie was baaaaaaaad! lol)

My all time favorite is "Gone With the Wind". Love the movie and the book. I think I can recite every line (drives DH nuts!)

Also love:
Quiet Man (another one I know almost every line)
Bringing up Baby (LOVE Katherine Hepburn!)
It's a Wonderful Life (can't have Christmas without it)
Miracle on 34th St. (the original)

I have to thank my mom for my love of musicals. I love all of them!
Sound of Music
King and I
White Christmas
Singing in the Rain
My Fair Lady
Going My Way

The list could go on and on.....

I think the comedy in it is absolutely brilliant (the pellet with the poison is in the vessel with the pestle, the flagon with the dragon has the brew that is true) and Danny Kaye plays the part to perfection
Tonight on CBS you can truly find out what people's favorite movies are. The top 100 movies of all time will be presented tonight through clips. This is the first time in ten years this list has been recompiled.

I've always loved the old Hammer horror films. My dad has a collection of stills from these pictures and I grew up watching them -- I was always fascinated by the old school Hollywood horror movie monsters. And I always rooted for the underdog.

Other than the Hammer flicks, I have a special place in my heart for Arsenic and Old Lace.

I never was into Musicals, I go for drama's. Loved The Godfather and offbeat movies like the orginal Planet of the Apes with my favorite actor Charlton Heston. Of course I have always loved the old 'B' movies which scared the heck out of me as a kid like, Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman, they used to be known as horror movies, today there is just too much gore in the horror movies so I don't see them. I also loved The Bridges of Madison County, always loved a good romantic movie but not a comedy, a true drama.

Oh I loved Duel and watch it any time it's on TV, it's scary cuz it could really happen. That's why I always liked Alfred Hitchcock movies like Psycho (but haven't watched it in years, too afraid) The Birds also.
