Does anybody like watching re-runs? I do! People don't make movies like they used to. You could tell who was the hero and who was the villain. Nowadays, I keep second-guessing myself!

My favorites include Charlie Chan, The Scarlet Pimpernel (with Leslie Howard!), and Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone).

For my birthday this year, my parents bought me an 8-DVD Set of Classic Television Series. After work, it is the one of the best things I look forward to when I come home exhausted.

Ma and Pa Kettle. Dumb funny!

We have a set of the Little Rascals. Man, it doesn't get any better than to hear Alfalfa croon!

I like Rio Grande and Sons of Katie Elder. John Wayne and Dean Martin make a great cowboy team. cowboy.gif

I love Fritz Lang's "Metropolis." I bought a copy of Moby Dick with Gregory Peck recently -- that's the one that Ray Bradbury did the screenplay for -- and it's amazing how powerful it still is. And also -- I don't know if you can really call this "old" -- I also recently bought a 25th anniversary edition of "Enter the Dragon."

Then there's always "Casablanca." And "Treasure of the Sierra Madre".

I've just introduced our girls to "My Fair Lady" (Audrey Hepburn, Rex Harrison), and they LOVED it!! (Hurray - I love it when that happens!). We've got it on an old VHS tape, very-much-used, pretty blurry now, so I'll have to go buy the DVD. tongue.gif

Some others I've always enjoyed are:
"Aunty Mame"
"Rooster Cogburn"
"Rio Grande"
"Two on a Guillotine"
"Kelly's Heroes"
"1776"
"Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"
"Breakfast At Tiffany's"
"To Catch A Thief" (Cary Grant, Grace Kelley)
"Robin Hood" (Errol Flynn!)
"The Pink Panther" (original, please!)
"The Rocketeer".......................................

I could go on all night -- love watching the older movies, for exactly the reason you gave, Rowan. They don't make them like they used to, for the most part. There are exceptions (like "Sleepless In Seattle"), but they're few and far between. Bring back the innuendo!

No, Cordelia, 'twasn't I! laugh.gif

The movie is sooooo much better than that reviewer makes it sound! Cesar Romaro's character wasn't resentful about his daughter's resemblance to her mother -- it only added to his sense of guilt and grief. He went crazy over the guilt, long before she grew up. There are some very romantic scenes, and also a white rabbit that pops up when you least expect it.

I looked for this movie to be released on VHS for years , because it's one of my hubby's all-time favorites, but it never came out. I think that possibly the film was already too badly damaged, aged, ???, to be saved. It's not that old, but I read somewhere that many of the movies of that time period weren't stored properly to begin with. I hope that's not true! I'd like to think that there's still a chance of seeing this one released on the market someday. It used to be shown on the local tv stations every once in a great while, and we'd always keep an eye out for it. It's been quite a long time since the last showing, though.

If you ever get a chance to watch this one, I strongly recommend it! cool.gif Just for old-time spooky fun, without any gore or violence, just a crafty rabbit wink.gif

Maybe someone already mentioned it and I just missed it, but one of the greatest movies of all time has got to be "The Court Jester" with Danny Kaye. If you haven't seen it yet do so (and if you have you'll probably agree with me...) GREAT stuff!

Yes! One of the greatest comedy movies set in medieval times! The other definitely has to be Bob Hope's 'Monsieur Beaucair'. . . .
