I love screwball comedies :
The Philadelphia Story
Bringing Up Baby
His Girl Friday
Holiday
 
Pretty much anything with Katharine Hepburn.  Marilyn Monroe, too - especially 'Bus Stop'.
 
Also love Hitchcock movies and weepers - like 'Mildred Pierce' and 'Imitation of Life'

I love old movies too !!

I think my favorite movie of all-time is probably this one (Gregory Peck...too.. lol):

"It's A Wonderful Life"

This was the trailer. . .


"Remember no man is a faliure who has friends."

Isn't that the truth !!

Much love to everyone here!

Here is a Classic.

Think this movie will get over?

They had a tough decision to make concerning freedom of speech and artistic expression and so...

Rumors back then stated that the producer David O. Selznick was fined$5,000 for using the word ...   ... "Damn". (see link below}




"Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a ... darn?"



Production Code Conflict

"Prior to the film's release, censors objected to the use of the word "damn" in the film, a word that had been prohibited by the 1930 Production Code that began to be enforced in July 1934 (Prior to 1930, the word "damn" had been relatively common in films).

"Although legend persists that the Hays Office fined producer David O. Selznick $5,000 for using the word "damn", in fact the Motion Picture Association board passed an amendment to the Production Code on November 1, 1939, a month and a half before the film's release, that forbade use of the words "hell" or "damn" except when their use "shall be essential and required for portrayal, in proper historical context, of any scene or dialogue based upon historical fact or folklore or a quotation from a literary work, provided that no such use shall be permitted which is intrinsically objectionable or offends good taste." With that amendment, the Production Code Administration had no further objection to Rhett's closing line."

Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a damn! (www.answers.com)

and after all of this time that has gone by since 1939... it continues...

"This quotation "Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a damn." was voted the number one movie line of all time by the American Film Institute 2005."

*lol* Go figure!

Damn Geno (lol),

The zip, ban an' deleters got their mitts into the movies, and guess what. . . the movie that didn't care, is the one that was remembered.

What does that tell us about people? To me it's pretty obvious that people enjoy the freedom to express themselves, with whatever vocabulary they feel makes their point.

If they find that their point is not well made with offensive language, then they'll either stop using it, or live with their inability to communicate well.

It's certainly better for a person to make his own decisions about this, than have some watchdog, editing words.

$5.000 fine.... ridiculous!!!

Why wasn't someone "editing" Hitler?

~AFI'S LIST OF 100 GREATEST MOVIE QUOTES OF ALL TIME~

This is a great list of famous, memorable lines from classic films. This list was done in 2005.

Note the precious few films listed with well written "famous, memorable" hook lines that have been created since 1990.


AFI'S LIST OF
100 GREATEST MOVIE QUOTES OF ALL TIME (from 2005)


"Great movie quotes become part of our cultural vocabulary. When you consider that any phrase from American film is eligible, you realize this is our most subjective topic to date. We expect nothing less than a war of words as we reignite interest in classic American movies."
Jean Picker Firstenberg Director and CEO, American Film Institute



~Enjoy,~

~ FAVORITE OLD FILMS? ~
Is 1979 that "old"?

A funny, sexy, classic movie, an eleven, on a scale of 1 to 10...

"...and make a grown man act like a child"
*LOL* ,,, this movie is still very funny!
...and also sad...

RIP Dudley

Titanic is my all time favorite movie,Titanic is the movie which really made me respect James Cameron as a film maker. He had made excellent movies before such as Terminator 1 and 2, True Lies, and Aliens, but Titanic is really different. Here he offers excellent and believable characters, stunning visuals and a compelling story. This movie is truly a 10!
