It’s Saturday-Yay! It has been raining all night and is still misty and really wet. So on a day like this, there is nothing better than homemade chicken soup and a good book or classic movie. BTW, my chicken is in the pot, simmering along as I type. This post is my opinion-not a requirement to purchase or watch! It probably tells a lot about my taste in cinema!!!
Best all time adult movies for me include:
*North by Northwest. I can’t say enough about this Hitchcock movie. I have it and have watched it a gazillion times! Cary Grant is a classic man. And who can forget the scene in the cornfield?
*In Harm’s Way. A World War II movie in black and white that came out in the 1960’s. John Wayne, Patricia Neal and a cast of hundreds of other well-known actors/actresses. I have this both in DVD and on disc. Wow!
*To Kill A Mockingbird. A CLASSIC. Be sure to read the book first. Atticus Finch is played perfectly by Gregory Peck.
*Goldfinger with Sean Connery. You know he was REALLY the ONLY James Bond! My husband in high school worked at the movie theater and I saw this for months on Friday night when we were dating.
*Some Like it Hot in black and white with Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. It’s Prohibition and Tony and Jack dress as women and join a women’s band to avoid the Mob! Ha Ha all the way!
Best Kid’s Movies:
*No Time for Sergeants-A great film with Andy Griffith and Don Knotts.
*The Ghost and Mr. Chicken played wonderfully by Don Knotts.
*The Parent Trap-the OLD one with Hayley Mills. I still watch this and laugh and laugh. I have tried the clicking sticks on novice hikers, too! Shame on me!
You will notice that my list contains no Disney classic movies. I saw Bambi as a child and I was DONE . I CAN NOT watch animal movies to this very day.
Best chick flicks to watch with your teenage granddaughters:
*Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back, The Trill of It All, The Glass Botton Boat with the queen of comedy and style-Doris Day. Not a vulgar word is heard and no nudity. She can still crack me up!
Best Horror Film for me is Them-a black and white movie made in 1954 about ants made into giant ants by radiation. Don’t watch it alone!
The Sound of Music—-the Hills are really alive in Austria and so is the music.
Holiday Inn by Irving Berlin-I usually watch this every July and then from Thanksgiving on. Yes, I know all the words!
Have a great Saturday!
