I'm so enjoying your lists---especially music and now the movies.

Have you seen "Young at Heart" with Doris Day and Frank Sinatra? Totally cheesy and soapy but wonderful. That was the one my five sisters and I watched over and over as kids, and argued over who was which sister (it is the story of 3 sisters)...

I think you might mean the A&E "Pride & Prejudice"--if you mean the one with Colin Firth. There is a BBC version but it is rarely seen (and not very good---at least compared to A&E's!).

Have you seen "Winslow Boy"? Might be your taste--Jeremy Northam from Ideal Husband is so good in it.

Okay...back to meeting deadlines. Thanks for the mini-movie break!


Sense and Sensibility (with Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet) and Love Actually are at the top of my list - second only to Pride and Prejudice (the Colin Firth version).

Sabrina is a great classic.

I grew up watching musicals so I'm partial to The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Singing in the Rain (you're right Gene Kelly was a hottie:) and Mary Poppins.

Sad movies are also wonderful, if you're in the mood. Beaches, The Shadowlands, Steel Magnolias, and Ya Ya Sisterhood are all good.


i haven't seen a LOT of these.... gonna write them down... i have actually been bugging TJ about the p&p one every time we are at the rental store and he is never in the mood.. imagine that. HA.

you have good taste... i trust you! :)

I love your new-found blogginess as of late. Too bad I've been overwhelmed and unable to read all of your fun stuff! You are such the romantic - love that about you!

I love old movies - ultimate fave is Gone With the Wind.
Favorite classic book - Jane Eyre
Favorite song evah! - Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp followed closely by Vogue by Madonna

Have a good day, C!

Asian Studies was one of my concentrations for my degree and I have a love for Foreign film, Chinese in particular. If you like history: The Emperor and The Assassin (awesome cinematography, about the fall of one of last dynasties in China); The Red Violin (Samuel Jackson is in this one, really impressive story line). I also recently saw: Turtles can Fly (one of the first films to come out of the Saddam liberated Iraq, sad yet uplifting in some strange way. The characters'(young kids) resilience is incredible).


Okay, so I am a total dork for old movies... LOVE THEM SO MUCH! This is such a great post. (I knew there was a reason we get along so well) And, I have to tell you... Gene Kelly is my old Hollywood crush too! NO JOKE. :)

Many from your list are favorites of mine too- 'Gone with the wind', 'Singing in the Rain', 'Meet me in St. Louis'. A couple other favorites are 'In the Good Old Summertime' with Judy Garland & Van Johnson (it's like 'You've got mail' but they work in a music store), 'The Five Pennies' with Danny Kaye (one of his more serious roles) and 'Pillow Talk' with Doris Day & Rock Hudson.


OMG I thought I was the only one who loved the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. I secretly think I have a huge crush on Colin Firth because I just love him as Mr. Darby!

I also love Love Actually and both of the Bridget Jones Diaries movies too.
