Take Me To the Movies

Jimmy Stewart
Fred MacMurray
I am a big fan of good movies.
I realize that good is a pretty broad adjective, but so is my list of good movies.

Katharine Hepburn
To narrow the list down just a bit,
I find that many of my favs are black and white, and have wonderful leading men like James Stewart and Fred MacMurray

Myrna Loy

leading women like
Katharine Hepburn and Myrna Loy.

A great director / producer is also a key factor.  Cecil B. DeMille and Frank Capra ... now there you have the makings of a great movie.

My favourites are usually funny, or heart-felt, or romantic or a combination of all three.  Although a  well carried out scary movie with twists and turns, is also very much enjoyed.

And what about the musical score?  Makes a huge difference in how a movie is received.  Think about it.
AND the lighting, AND the costumes, AND the camera angles.  AND the dialogue.

Boy, don't you just love those old movies?


  1. Oh Lori,
    I love old movies too...I find myself checking out the decor more and more when I watch them. And the fashion! Some day I am going to serve my hubby dinner in a dress and heels with a pretty frilly apron. Oh and with my pearls on!

    He won't get it...but, I will!


  2. You are a kindred spirit, Susie. You so get why I like old movies. And you are right, too, about the decor. Great inspiration. Dress and heels, frilly apron and pearls? You go girl. Lori
