Classic movies

Postby Librtyhead » Sun Jun 20, 2010 5:36 pm

Last night I watched the last movie that John Dillinger watched a "Manhattan melodrama" with Cary Grant and Mryna Loy. Mickey Rooney as a child actor was cute and he is one of the only people I can think of that has never changed his entire life, he must have been 9-10 yrs old then.
The night before I watched "The Lady vanishes" circa 1938 directed by Alfred Hitchcock. He did do a very fast cameo as he does in most of his movies and it was kinda funny watching him that young walking by in the train station with his cigar. He kinda stooped for a second and and if he had not done that I may have not seen him.
Anyways, I like the old movies as they are non-PC and are really what movies should be ....entertaining, not like these new ones out now. I see that many sitcom re-runs are on the tele now and all that is needed is to go to the movies and watch more. The Karate Kid and the A-team are a few examples. :roll:
Does anyone else love the classics?

Seriously, I watch classics pretty often. I kind of fell in love with Veronica Lake after watching "Sullivan's Travels", it's a shame she didn't have a bigger career. "All About Eve" is fantastic, and I recently watched "Double Indemnity" where Fred MacMurray was a bad guy. Then there's "The Caine Mutiny" with Mr MacMurray again... he didn't get enough recognition for his acting chops either IMO.

I could go on and on...

I've never seen that one and will look on net-flix for it. I really feel much better about the world after getting rid of my cable T.V. I never really watched it much and now get the basic 23 channels. Net-flix plus a few yard sales and Goodwill brings in better movies that they could ever broadcast nowadays. I really thing NBC,CBS,ABC and many cable networks are on the outs. I can still listen to my baseball games on the AM radio in the back yard with a cool breeze and a beer..........life is good! :)

I picked up a box of "film classics" at a yard sale last week, they are in VCR format but are made very well. I must have 30 movies in there. I have an old VCR that I still use and what a great price for some quality entertainment...........10.00.
..........chit.... I'm younger than you! But I love the old movies.

The films that I could watch over and over and I believe will go down In history as classics are 'Goodfellows' and 'Casino'.

I liked Goodfellows with that guy that was in the second silence of the lambs. It was a cool movie he also did one with Whoppi Goldberg. He played an advertising exec. and did a jello pudding thing. Tom Berringer?.......anyways I have never seen Casino. I thought I saw one with Frank Sinatra in my box of movies though. I believe someone that has minimized google search could possibly correct me though. :D
