I am absolutely a classic film enthusiast! Is there anyone else on here that loves classic films or classic actors & actresses? Please elaborate if you do! I apologize if there is already a topic about this! I looked through the first twenty pages or so and did not see one. :)

Depends on what you call classics? I like Hitchcock, Film Noir, and SF B-movies from the 1950s...

The Lady Vanishes and Arsenic & Old Lace are two of my favourite comedies.

I actually haven't seen To Catch a Thief (but I liked Roman Holiday)!

To fruitbat: I would consider those classics! I adore Hitchcock. His birthday is today too! I mainly love movies from the 1920's to 1960's.

To Randi: Yay!! I LOVE Roman Holiday! You can't go wrong with Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn!! To Catch a Thief is wonderful! Cary Grant and Grace Kelly are magnificent!

My favorite actor is Jimmy Stewart, and I'm totally in love with him haha. :P

Oh, I love Arsenic & Old Lace! I haven't seen The Lady Vanishes. I'll have to get to that!

I love Humphrey Bogart. Favorites being Key Largo, Maltese Falcon and African Queen. Ooh! And Treasure of the Sierra Madre!

2nd (3rd?) Arsenic and Old Lace. I also love just about anything Danny Kaye is in. OH, and The Philadelphia Story! I actually like a lot of Cary Grant stuff.

To Nickvicious: I love Humphrey Bogart! He was a very talented actor! I love all of the movies you mentioned! Also To Have and Have Not! :)

To Rachell37: I love the Philadelphia Story! Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, and Katharine Hepburn were a perfect trio in that movie! Oh, and I love your avatar! Pretty In Pink is so good! :D

To Angelina: Cary Grant was just terrific, wasn't he? Notorious and North by Northwest are definitely among my favorites of his films! :)

Classic ijdi.


I assume if they are playing on American Movie Classics channel, then they are classics. So, add Con Air to the list.

I love them. That Touch of Mink is my favorite. Doris Day, Cary Grant.

Charade/To Catch a Thief/the Doris Day Charade spoof about hairspray with the title I can never remember

Cary Grant was the best. I love Houseboat with Sophia Loren. Actually, anything he did I love. Ditto Doris Day. Glass Bottom Boat is great.

Let's see. What else?

Marilyn Monroe, especially Niagara, Let's Make Love, and How to Marry a Millionaire. But not Bus Stop--I hate that movie. Really hate it.

Hitchcock (love Rope).
Hepburn/Tracy like Desk Set.
Anything Audrey Hepburn, esp Funny Face
Lauren Bacall (Key Largo)

Old Saint movies (Pre-Roger Moore, though I love those too)

And, of course, nothing is more classic than James Bond. If I could only watch one movie from here to eternity it would easily be Dr. No.

For something more modern: The Breakfast Club. I'll give IDJI Con Air if we can have The Rock too. And, for the hell of it, Zardoz because that movie just defies all laws of reason and nobody except Sean Connery could have ever possibly lived that thing down.

I forgot Metropolis and the Karloff movies like The Mummy. And Eisenstein (those are in Russian).

Speaking of Russian, if you like campy spy spoof movies, The Diamond Arm is absolutely fabulous. Anyone who enjoys Charade and similar will likely enjoy it.

Post subject:  Re: Classic films anyone?

The Mummy and The Breakfast Club are great movies. I love The Abominable Dr. Phibes, but didn't consider it old enough to be classic (1971. Love Vincent Price, I saw House on Haunted Hill the other night). My all time favourite movie just might be Bladerunner...

Post subject:  Re: Classic films anyone?

Hmm, I haven't seen That Touch of Mink! I do enjoy some Doris Day though! I love Cary Grant as well. He was so iconic.

I agree about the movie Bus Stop! It was the first movie I ever saw of Marilyn's, and I did not care for it much either!
I love Rope too! And his other films with Jimmy Stewart especially: Rear Window, Vertigo, and The Man Who Knew Too Much.
I adore Katharine Hepburn and her collaboration with Spencer Tracy!
Audrey Hepburn was brilliant. I love Funny Face, Sabrina, Charade, and Roman Holiday.
I also like Lauren Bacall! Especially her movies with Humphrey Bogart!

Oh, I love The Breakfast Club! And many other John Hughes films!

I haven't seen The Diamond Arm, but I'll have to check it out! :)

If you like Rope, see if you can track down Swoon. It was made in the 90's, but it is about Leopold and Loeb (the true case Rope is based on). Very well done, stylish docudrama type movie.

Errol Flynn is fun too.

I'm not huge on Westerns, but Clint Eastwood and Shirley MacClaine did one together called A Mule For Sister Sara or some similar title. Cute movie;they were good together. Clint was so young!

Post subject:  Re: Classic films anyone?

I just looked up Swoon. It looks interesting, and I'll have to see if I can find it!

I'm not too keen on Westerns either. They just aren't my cup of tea. The only ones I have really watched are Jimmy Stewart's, haha. I'll have to check out that Clint one though!

Post subject:  Re: Classic films anyone?

"Classic" is a very subjective term, but I absolutely love White Heat, and despite all of the Western haters, two of my favourite films ever are Pat Garret and Billy the Kid and The Long Ryders. I think these are classics.

Post subject:  Re: Classic films anyone?

I can't stand westerns. That's why I never got into Firefly... it's a freaking western (with spaceships).

China Seas
Red Dust
The Divorcee
Night Nurse
It Happened One Night
The Thin Man

Pre-code talkies and 70's horror are just about all I watch.

I'm sorry, I should have been more descriptive in my first post, haha. If I could go back and edit it, I would! :P

Vantine, I love It Happened One Night! It's one of my favorites! I also love The Thin Man series and The Divorcee! I have not seen the others though! haha :)

Sunset Boulevard
The Young Philadelphians
