Funny Face (1957) In Colour
Starring: Audrey Hepburn & Fred Astaire
I am even more in love with Audrey Hepburn after seeing this movie. I love her dancing and her fashion style. She is so adorable and even more because she is working in a bookshop - my kind of gal. I don't know about Fred Astaire as the love interest though, he's an awesome dancer/actor, but not that attractive in my eyes.
How to marry a millionaire (1953) In colour
Starring: Marilyn Monroe, Betty Gable & Lauren Bacall
I thought this was the movie that Marilyn sang 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' in, but it's not. I still really enjoyed it. The only thing that I was annoyed with was how they made Marilyn look like a ditzy, clumsy girl. They made her seem like the stereotypical blonde.
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) In B & W
Starring: Gregory Peck, John Megna & Frank Overton
This was an ok movie, but not a favourite. I haven't read the book and after watching this it doesn't make me want to read it, I still will but I'm not in a hurry to read it. Great acting and story, I just don't think it was up my alley.
The Birds (1963) In Colour
Starring: Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren & Suzanne Pleshette
Was a little slow, but I can see that for it's time it would've been terribly scary and the special effects would've looked fantastic. I'm not saying that it looks bad, it still looks pretty good. I just didn't like it as much as Psycho. I also felt there wasn't really an explanation for why the birds were attacking people, which let the movie down a bit for me.
Singin' in the rain (1952) In Colour
Starring: Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor & Debbie Reynolds
This was fantastic!! The story, comedy, dancing, singing and acting were all of high quality. It has become a favourite movie and I will watch this again for sure! Gene & Debbie are so gorgeous together!
An Affair to Remember (1957) In Colour
Starring: Cary Grant & Deborah Kerr
A romantic movie with a twist at the end. Was quite good, but I'm not dying to watch it again.
Do you have any classic movie suggestions for me?
