  2. I think your link to the Classics pages are very good. I love these old movies, and it seems I have seen every one of them, many in the original. Very effective.

      • it isnt an age thing so much anymore…these old films were so good they are ageless. They are supported ny good acting and excellent plots…not dependant on gratuitous sex and cuss words.

        • I completely agree. They were plot dependent, and that isn’t easy. And most remain surprisingly contemporary!


          • I read someplace that there are but a few basic plots…and then variations in era, place, genre. I used to go to the theater by myself, if I couldn’t get anyone to go with me.

  3. Really good, I’m a recent fan of the Classics and it is great to see a compilation of reviews that will, without doubt, lead me to new discoveries. If nothing else you have made my day. Thankyou. Going to watch Laura tonight. I’m in Phnom Penh so it’s getting dark already.

    • I hope you enjoy it! I love the Classics. My reviews so far have almost exclusively been of movies from the 30s and 40s, but there are some greats from the 50s as well. I hope I’ve helped you find some more you can enjoy! I don’t know what’s available where you live.
