Love love love Bogart.

I also have a weakness for the Thin Man movies with Myrna Loy and William Powell.

I think I'm going to watch My Fair Lady.

Or

Breakfast at Tiffany's.

It's an Audrey Hepburn kinda day.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Hubby put the kibosh on "happy slappy" (his term) movies.

So I'm watching The Omen.

Hubby said we're going to watch Halloween: resurrection later. Sadcryface

True story: my brother works with someone named Damien, after that character. And he's an atheist. Smile

Jimmy Cagney was once talking about filming some of the very earliest tough guy pictures back in the early 30's and he said they used REAL bullets in some of the scenes. He said the special effects guys at the time hadn't come up with small charges that would ignite. Like there'd be a scene where Jimmy Cagney was hiding behind something and real bullets would be whizzing by hitting the wall behind him. The actors complained a lot. Really? I can't imagine why.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

My favorite Audrey Hepburn movie is

Wait Until Dark

I directed the play for a little theater group in 1998.

My 9-year-old son's middle name, after that character. Not my idea, though. Undecided

RE: I looooooove old movies!
Most definitely Audrey Hepburn. All things Audrey. She was a magnificent woman, and I hope her legacy in what she did after stopping acting as her primary career will make her a cultural saint.

I also really liked Olivia deHavilland and Vivien Leigh. Waterloo Bridge, total favorite, though of course I was introduced to those ladies by Gone with the Wind, required viewing for every Southerner in southeast Georgia, where I grew up. As amazing as Clark Gable is as Rhett, it is another film for which I most fondly remember him, and which I consider a better depiction of the reality of the deep South, and that is Band of Angels.

Big fan of Bogart: The African Queen, Casablanca, Key Largo... so many amazing movies.
