Great Old Movies

March 18, 2007

Where to start? A short list Roman Holiday (my favorite), Paris- When It Sizzles, Charade (my favorite- I can have two right?), Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 12 Angry Men, Ben HurRear Window (best intro of a character EVER-Grace  Kelly as Lisa  Carol Fremont),  Rope (watch it closely and the extras after the movie to see if you get the undercurrents of this very dark thriller) OK there are more I’ll add later. This is a good start for your Netflix Q.

You almost cannot go wrong watching any Marilyn Monroe movie. Believe it or not she was a good actress. Start with Niagara my favorite Marilyn movie, dark but good plus some great Ohio (Cleveland) characters.

Westerns next, yes there are great westerns! Even one Marilyn Monroe!
