There are the classics:
- Sunset Boulevard - William Holden in his prime, Billy Wilder, Gloria Swanson....how well that movie tells the story.
- All About Eve - to be Bette Davis dressed in Edith Head classics.
- Gone with the Wind - as any Southern Girl knows the "Bible" of how to be a GRIT (Girl Raised in the South).
- Some Like it Hot - I'm still trying to find a contact in Hollywood to get a remake made with Steve Carell in the Jack Lemmon roll and Vince Vaughn in the Tony Curtis roll. I love this movie.
- The Quiet Man, True Grit, and The Searchers - All John Wayne films that I wouldn't classifiy as "typical".
- Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons - Fabulous examples of Orson Wells at his best.
- Holiday Inn and White Christmas - holiday classics at their best...how I wish I could live in these Christmas worlds.
- To Kill a Mockingbird - this movie and book means so much to me.
- Rebecca, Suspicion, and Psycho - Alfred Hitchcock in his early days.
- It's a Wonderful Life - a classic that makes me cry EVERY time.
There are other movies that I consider classics...movies from my generation and the generation before me. That's for another post....
What are your favorite movies....I'm interested to hear?
