    I mean really back there? Black and white? We get TCM here and Robert Osborne gives us some wonderful old pictures to look at. I was just wondering if anyone else shares this passion.

    Actually I do share this ...I am not very familiar with alot of them..but i just finished taking a film and culture class and I had to watch many different films...Casablanca, silent ones such as Charlie Chaplin, Citizen Kane and many others..I enjoyed all of them. I have always watched Musicals...and that sort of thing...I love them.

    I much prefer the old movies. Do you like dogs, horses and comedy, check out You never can tell. Really good, I think.

    There are a few of them I like. I just watched "The Bishop's Wife" with Loretta Young and Rock Hudson. Very good. One other I truly enjoy is "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir." That one has a very young Natalie Wood in it, I think.

    Yes, that was Natalie. That was a good picture.

    I just finished watching "Murder Ahoy" with Margaret Rutherford. Another wonderful old picture is "It Grows on Trees". I love it, but have not seen it for many years.

    I'm trying to get more into them. They're great & generally uplifting without being too preachy.

    My favorite so far is Mrs. Miniver.

    Have you ever seen the Thin Man movies? there are 6 of them and the characters are Nick an Nora and they are investigators. They are really hilarious. They are set in the 30's or 40's.

    My favorite all time movie is an old Myrna Loy film titled "Since You Went Away". It's wonderful! And at this time of year, "The Bishop's Wife" and "Christmas in Connecticut". Also a really old one, Loretta Young in a movie I believe is called "Come to the Stable".

    Yes. I remember Nick and Nora. There was a "not so old" movie called "Murder by Death" in which there two characters called Dick and Dora, played by David Niven and Maggie Smith.

    I just looked up the listing for "The Bishop's Wife". I could not find Rock Hudson. Could you be thinking maybe of Cary Grant? (Also tall and good looking.) If you get a chance, check out his picture with Ingrid Bergman, "Notorious".

    I've found quite a few at the Dollar Store. They had a bunch of Shirley Temple about 2 months ago. I check every couple of months to see what "new" has come in.

    I loves my old movies!!! :mrgreen:

    My favorites are Casablanca, and Gone with the Wind. I have a lot of movie memorabilia that I have collected through the years like posters, props, and all sorts of neat theater programs. But my most prized possession is my original script from Gone with the Wind that is signed by the entire cast including David Selznick.

And all the 'Ma and Pa Kettle" movies, which also brings me to 'The Egg and Eye" Lordy I could go on and on and on!!!!!! Love the oldies!!!!! :D

    Cary Grant in "I Was a Male War Bride" is hilarious.
    Some Like It Hot is my favourite all time movie - Gone With The Wind next.
    But for a good sniffle, Random Harvest with Ronald Coleman

    Ditto ~ I have to watch this movie every year and it has to be the black and white version. I purchased the color version years ago and watched it once....just not the same. I am a fan of old westerns b&w or color doesn't matter, have to also throw in Bonanza and Gun Smoke. :)
