    Am a Turner Classic Movies fan. Love the old black and white (Bette Davis,
    Joan Crawford, Humphrey Bogart) and classics: The Heiress, A Place in the
    Sun, Of Mice and Men, The Postman Always Rings Twice, Mildred Pierce, etc.
    Get the idea ... and guess you know my age bracket.

    Oh, you should see my video collection. From Oklahoma, South Pacific, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Bat ballet, onwards
    to the Challenger horror. We taped it as it happened, it showed Christa's parents in the stands as they watched the smoke trail suddenly spread out in a giant Y..then men in suits came for them and you could see the knowledge of what had happened on their faces. This was never shown again.

    Bed knobs and Broom Sticks..I still love Angela Lansbury's movies. Movies that don't have violence or vulgar language.
    It seems that every movie director thinks the public won't buy into a movie unless it has 3 gallons of blood and words that are forbidden in most homes in America.

    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang...do you see a pattern here? I love children's movies like Mary Poppins..

    My kids say it's because I must be in my second childhood. Okay, I'm having fun with movies and my play time in my sewing room.

    I have a large movie collection here too. Been getting TV shows on DVD lately so I can listen to them while sewing. Reciently got all of The Golden Girls, a show I really enjoyed. It's nice to have them when there is nothing on television, even though the new seasons are starting up this week, there are a few days where there is nothing to catch my interest to watch, so those will be dedicated sewing days!

    I love musicals, too, Ramona Byrd! Ooooklahoma! Now I'm going to be singing that all day! :) And I love all my childhood favorites...

    Deb--I just mailed my Gilmore Girls dvd's to SIL, who was placed on bedrest in her fourth month of pregnancy. They were my favorite "background" to sewing and cleaning, because I know them so well I can "watch" in my head and still concentrate on what I'm doing! I hope I get them back!

    My Mom and I were talking one day over coffee. She was telling me about a movie she had seen, all blood and guts type of thing. She didn't care for the movie I don't recall which one it was.
    Anyway, she says, "I don't care for blood, guts, attacking women type of movies, things blowing up etc. By the way......Do you have "Full Metal Jacket" at home?" I almost spit my coffee at her.

    Latest one I watched was Julia/Julie. Thought I would like it more. Used to live for movies when I was younger, now just doesn't seem to be anything worthwhile to go see or rent. Lots of junk. Now I'm hooked on home or cooking shows on cable. Where does the day go?

    Not crazy about blood guts and gore in movies. Starship troopers is the worst in my collection.
    Took forever to get thru it has I had to pause it a lot to get up and walk out of the room for a bit.
    I do have a large variety overall, approx 500 - 750 total DVD, Blu Ray, and VHS.
    Waiting on Letters from Juliet - it should arrive this coming week in the mail - was cheaper to buy thru the net and had free shipping.
