    Not sure how they left off "Sunset Boulevard" and "Lawrence of Arabia". Two of the undeniable very best films ever made. Anyone else see any other obvious omissions?

    I like to watch the movies from the 1950's because of the beautiful dresses the women wore. I liked the 1960's movies of the Teens at the Beach acting like they are having a great time. I wanted to be part of that beach fantasy in the 1960's. lol
    The 1970's was all about Hippies and Free Love. I don't care about those movies at all.
    It is fun watching movies that don't have cell phones or computers. A victim can't call for help because the phone wire has been pulled by the bad person. I remember when telephones were shared by other parties and I could hear them talking.lol
    Movies between Rock Hudson and Gals talking on their phones and getting another gal telling him to get off the phone so she could use it. lol
    I am able to watch 'Sunset Blvd 'Movie over and over and never get tired of seeing it. How dare that free loading young handsome writer think he can walk away from the crazy old actress. lol. A friend of mine said that was the first movie to show a young man being supported by an old lady. In real life there have been many young actors being financially supported by older actresses presently.

    I like watching TCM movies

    My adult son recently saw the movie "RoseBud". He didn't think that was a good old movie. He didn't understand that the rich old man never had friends. His best memory was of a piece of wood that he truly loved.

    Before my old dad died at the age of 96 yrs.old..... I told him his final word was going to be "Jeanie".. in a Bottle. He loved
    playing that slot machine in Vegas. lol.

    The movie is Citizen Kane.

    I grew up watching old movies with my dad. (pre-cable, but WGN usually had some on the weekends, can't remember where else we saw? Then he got some VHS tapes :) Lawrence of Arabia was one of his favorites (the movie, but he also loves middle eastern history) He likes war movies a lot more than I do. Can't tell you how many books I've read while he was watching Bridge on the River Kwai in the same room :) Ah, my childhood!

    My favorites are Cary Grant & Catherine Hepburn - I like the strong female characters of the 30s & 40s over the Doris Day of the 50s & 60s. Oh, Thin Man - the dialog, just adore. I have those on dvd now.

    I watch TCM & amc quite often - I'll have to see if there are any I want to record for a rainy day :)

    It's funny. I cancelled cable because all I would watch is "old movies" on TCM, and sometimes CNBC. TCM is the only thing I miss! Love "Cabin In the Sky" but sooo many good movies, can't pick! I'd have to take the month off work!

    Watching "Sabrina" now for the first time on Amazon Prime. It's so good, funny too. Can't believe I've never seen it! Should have won something or been on someone's list.

     
    Entire trip at my favorite hotel!
