    Re: What Are Your Favorite Old Classic Movies?

    Your right about Private Life of Henry VIII

    I started collecting those types of movies - Man of All Seasons, Lady Jane, etc. I love those grand movies - the costumes and stories are great!

    I've also started collecting Oliver Reed movies - I've always had Oliver! and Tommy, but don't forget the Muskateers movies, Prince and the Pauper, etc.

    There are a lot of great classics out there

    John Wayne is great. An early classic that not a lot of people have seen (but I like a lot for some reason) is The Shepherd of the Hills.

    Also, with St. Patty's Day tomorrow, you have to go rent The Quiet Man. Set in Ireland, John Wayne goes after Maureen O' Hara's heart. In this movie, Maureen O'Hara reminds me of my ex-wifeó they both have the exact same Irish temper. As a matter of fact, I had to look twice to make sure this wasn't a home movie of mine

    DizDee, if you haven't seen The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer, it stars Shirley Temple as a teenager with a crush on Cary Grant! Very funny!

    Re: What Are Your Favorite Old Classic Movies?

    I was going to start a different thread but this seems the right spot.

    Right now I am loving rewatching the 1946 classic "The Best Years of Our Lives"

    For those who don't know it, the film is about 3 WW2 vets returning home to try and adjust to civilian life.

    One is a former big shot who finds that life has moved on without him, another an upper class businessman who finds that the horrors of war have left his 'beautiful people' lifestyle unappealing.

    The third is a man who lost both arms in the war, adjusting to disabilities.

    The backstory on this role is interesting. The actor Harold Russell was a real vet who lost his arms in a training accident. He had never acted before, other than doing a training film for other disabled vets.

    He did such a good job he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor. The academy was so worried he would lose that they voted him a special award for his service to disabled vets.

    He then went on to win the BSA award as well, making him the only person to win 2 Oscars for the same role.

    He spent the rest of his life working on behalf of disabled vets.

    It is a truly inspiring film and well worth watching.

    Re: What Are Your Favorite Old Classic Movies?

    OK, a lot of these have been mentioned already, but here are some of my favorites:

    Casablanca - The all-time champ with one quotable line after another. The Marseilles still gives me chills.

    Gone With the Wind - A soap opera of the grandest scale. The most riveting and tightly paced 3 1/2 hours ever put on film.

    Citizen Kane - The template for countless classic movies that followed. Orson Welles' career could never live up to his greatest success in film.

    The Philadelphia Story - Think Cary Grant is great? Watch Jimmy Stewart steal almost every scene they're in together.

    All About Eve - Nearly as quotable as Casablanca. "Fasten your seatbelts. It's going to be a bumpy night."

    Some Like it Hot - Has the best last line in the best comedy ever.

    The Maltese Falcon - "The stuff dreams are made of." The movie that made Bogart an icon.

    To Have and Have Not - I have a soft spot for Bogie. So did Lauren Bacall in her very first movie.

    All Quiet on the Western Front - The first great anti-war war movie. Over 75 years later, its battle scenes still shock and haunt.

    Singin' in the Rain - One classic musical number after another. Gene Kelly is a marvel with the title tune, but Donald O'Connor (Make 'em Laugh) was never better.

    An American in Paris - Kelly's homage to George Gershwin is a bit dated story-wise, but its amazing choreography more than stands the test of time.

    Duck Soup - Hail Freedonia!!! The Marx Brothers' political tour-de-farce is their funniest and best.

    Those are the ones that come top of mind. I'm sure I can come up with plenty more.
