Classic Classic Movies

Feeling Locked Down? Bad case of Cabin Fever? Wanna go out but don't wanna die? Have I got a cure for what ails you. Classic Movies!* @21st Century Man can you believe we haven't had this topic since Tootsy Wootsy launched one? And seems like they both went down in flames together. I'm a serious fan but really haven't watched any for awhile. Last three days I watched a Classic I hadn't seen before. Really brightened up my days. Even the dark ones because they are so delicious

If you're new to black and white or even silent movies I'd like to introduce you to a few of my favorites. You are in for a treat. If you know them, remember how good these are?

Here's an easy Top Five. All worth multiple viewings. But I suggest don't binge Classics. Savor them

Casablanca 1943 My Numero Uno all time favorite movie of any time. Humphrey Bogart, maybe the first anti-hero before that term even existed. Possibly the best supporting cast ever assembled. Every scene is a gem. Every line of dialogue quotable. Making this list it dawned on me this is the only one never re-made. No one would ever dare


Out of the Past  1947 This is my favorite Film Noir. One of the first and one of the best. Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas. Like watching Dark and Light in a test of wills. Jane Greer the icy femme fatale. Remade a million times including 1984 Against All Odds. Starring Jeff Bridges' abs. A movie well worth watching

The Thing From Another World  1951 Sci-fi and Horror. Tight script. Snappy dialogue. Great fun and a few real chills

Philadelphia Story  1940 Sophisticated comedy perfection. Katherine Hepburn (the clothes!), Cary Grant and James Stewart (who won an Oscar for this because he got shafted on Mr. Smith Goes to Washington)
 
Scarface  1932 Forget the big budget bloated remake with Al Pacino. This is stripped down pre-code gangster movie making. Paul Muni is a revelation of animalistic charisma with no redeeming qualities. So why do we root for him?

Freaks 1932 Bearded Lady, Pillow Man, Pinhead Pip, Pinhead Zip, Half-Boy... what more could you ask for?

That is an excellent movie. First time I watched it was at the Ken Cinema. I had a hard time with the creepiness. The freaks creeped me out too much. But it's got a great message about inclusion, community and acceptance. And don't mess with one of ours

Some say Dad's first movie was a "classic" but personally I'd like to remember dad for all the stolen cocaine he used to bring home to us kids.

Watched this for the first time in years as I got one of the newer bluray remasters.  Such an amazing cast and hilarious movie.

So many great moments but this might be my favorite scene: serenading the leopard quartet

That's a very noir film noir. Dark. And the femme fatale is very fatale. Fatal. You know how to pick them, Bart

The only movie worth watching is the one that parallels my early life - except we didn’t have chicken wire nor such spectacular car crashes. The Blues Brothers Movie.

Not my thread but I feel like we're getting away from what it was meant to be.

Yeah.
I blame the guy who wanted everyone to know his dad did lots of gay porn.
