I have a new movie to add to my list. Well, not new, but new to me. I just watched it this afternoon and it's brilliant.

SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY



It is the most British movie I've ever seen and the acting is sublime. Trust me, watch this movie.

This movie was made way before I was born, but in my neighborhood. The city tore down the buildings in this movie and put up Lincoln Center, only about 5 blocks from where I grew up. A little Lulu trivia for you.

WEST SIDE STORY





Probably the best American musical ever made.

I borrowed this from the library today. I've always loved the music and I saw the movie a long time ago. Now I HAVE to buy the DVD.

CAMELOT





Richard Harris was quite a hottie when he was young. This is brilliant - try to see it if you can.

I saw this movie when I was little and fell straight into my first crush (Tom Hanks). It seems as though I still love those tall, gangly, boyish type men. smirk.

SPLASH

This movie made me fall in love with Alan Rickman (and Anthony Minghella)

TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY

This one is a bit of a tear-jerker

TERMS OF ENDEARMENT

WILLY WONKA



My apologies to all who prefer the Johnny Depp version, but I like the original old school version with Gene Wilder.

A behind the scenes look at old Hollywood making the transition from silent movies to talkies.

SINGING IN THE RAIN

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MOVIES TO ME PERSONALLY

PHILADELPHIA

Now this one is just silly fluff, but I love it.

PILLOW TALK





This movie has Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall - what more could you ask for.

I remember going to see this movie like it was yesterday. I went to see it 3 times. I LOVED it and I still do.

MEN IN BLACK

I grew up with the Funny Girl soundtrack always playing on the stereo. Andrew and I both know all the lyrics to all the songs on this soundtrack. Our mom was a huge Barbra Streisand fan and this was her favorite movie of all time. This so reminds me of my mom and my childhood. This one is a no brainer - you must see this movie and listen to the songs. Enjoy.

FUNNY GIRL

I have a real tear-jerker today. I've seen this movie countless times and I always cry.

LOVE STORY



I think the "love means never having to say you're sorry" line is crap. I mean you apologize to those you love all the time cause you don't want to hurt them, but the rest of this movie really gets to me. The music, scenery, clothes all rock. The acting is a little wooden, but hey that's Ryan O'Neill and Ali McGraw, that's their style.

Have tissues at the ready.

There is a hurricane off shore so it's been raining here all day. We're going out with friends tonight, but I just finished watching Caberet.

OMG I had forgotten alot of this movie. Michael York is seriously handsome and I love the bisexual vibe. The music is incredible and this was definitely Liza Minelli's finest hour. I had seen this years ago and also had the pleasure of seeing Natasha Richardson on Broadway (actually at Studio 54)so I really enjoyed revisiting this.

The clothes, scenery, music and acting is all superb. You must see this film.

When I was a kid my mom used to take me to a small theatre by Lincoln Center to see classic movies. So my first experience with Gone with the Wind and Casablanca was on the big screen. I thank her for this and for my love of classic movies.

Today Isabel is coming over to spend the night as her hubby and my hubby are going to a ball game. On the program are my two favorite Hitchcock movies.

REAR WINDOW



AND VERTIGO



Both star the amazing Jimmy Stewart. The beautiful Grace Kelly is in Rear Window, my mom idolized her and I probably still have the Life magazine somewhere with Grace Kelly's wedding in it that my mom saved. This movie is about voyerism and murder. I think all Hitchcock's movies are classics, but this one is my favorite.

I like Vertigo for an entirely different reason. After NYC I love San Francisco. One of my brothers went to college there and My family spent a month there the summer I was 12. My dad was attending an engineering thing and we all went along. San Francisco is the most beautiful city. It is built on hills and everywhere you look is an amazing view. This movie is a love letter to San Francisco. Besides, I don't like heights either.

Whether you are a Hitchcock fan or not, or if you only know Birds or Psycho, give these movies a look see.

I've been revisting my favorite movies (since summer tv is such crap) and I decided to share them with you. You may be surprised to know that I do watch more than Jack Davenport movies, though he is definitely represented in my list.

Today I re-watched Breakfast at Tiffany's. A definite classic. The amazing Audrey Hepburn and very handsome George Preppard. I also read the story by Truman Cappote and the movie sticks close to the book. This is one of those movies that is a love story to NYC, showing it in the best light. The music is amazing, the clothes trend setting. This movie more or less invented the little black dress. All in all a definite recommendation, or as the movie guy says - thumbs up. Give it a look, you won't regret it.
