A few of my favorite moves, by no means a complete list
- Gone With the Wind, one of the 1939 classics. I still sigh the first time Clark Gable comes on screen.
- My all time favorite--The Blob, with Steve McQueen. A group from college showed it 8 times over 2 weekends for a fund raiser. I used to be able to reside the dialogue, corny as it is. Love it.
- Pride and Prejudice, the 1939 version with Greer Garson and Lawrence Olivier. Although the televised version (with Kiera Knightly I think it is) is beginning to gain a foothold with me. Both versions have delightful D'Arcys and such self-centered Mrs Bennets.
- Another great 1939 film, The Women. I had to see it a second time to confirm there isn't a man involved, not even in the credits. How delightful. How catty.
- The Gay Divorcee with Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. I love all their films but this one with them dancing to Night and Day remains my favorite. Love that flowing dress.
- Holiday Inn, another with Fred Astaire, but with the added benefit of Bing Crosby. I've worn out 2 DVDs and before that a VHS tape. Watch it every year while wrapping presents.
- White Christmas, see above but substitute Danny Kaye for Fred Astaire.
- Wizard of Oz. Love this movie. Mom always said we've seen this and changed the channel. I was out of college and living on my own before I realized most of the movie was in color!
- And another 1939 classic, Stagecoach, with a very youthful John Wayne.
