27. Rear Window (1954)
Who doesn’t love a good ‘ole Alfred Hitchcock movie. Murder, Suspense, Sex…cameo’s
AHAAA!! There’s the master at work! Spotted ya!
I’ve seen this movie several times and can’t decide if Stewart is just as bad as that naughty guy Raymond Burr. I mean he is a peeping tom for crying out loud…
Get a load of what’s in his lens…
Oh no Jimmy….REALLY!? Does anyone close there blinds?
Jimmy is thinking he wants a piece of that action…such a bad influence getting Miss Thelma Ritter involved…
Anyone want to take a guess at what’s going through there minds right now!? haha i’m just kidding. Stewart’s getting a little excited, and is sorely going to be disappointed if his gorgeous girlfriend walks in right about now, becasue Thelma is in the room and he’s got a cast on his leg…Can’t do much with that…
…But there she is in all her glory…so let’s peep out the window again and take our mind of…well you know.
THAT’LL DO IT!!
That creepy guy is GOING DOWN!!
Ok, I’ll stop now lol…I’m sure i’ll watch this at least a dozen more times. I made a friend of mine watch it the other night because the backside of her apt. building reminded me of this film. I was of course quoting this film the whole time!
Throwing a pic of Thelma Ritter in here again BECAUSE SHE’S AWESOME!! She should have won best supporting actress oscar for her part in Pickup on South Street…an amazing lady!
28. Park Row (1952)
I’d never heard of this until I watched it on TCM the other night. It caught my interest due to the fact that Samuel Fuller directed it! He used an entire cast of unknowns…so wasn’t to sure about it, but was surprised at how entertaining and fast paced it was. The romance angle is a little corny at times…but it’s still worth checking out.
Phineas Mitchell (What a name) begins his own newspaper on park row in 1880’s NYC! His nemesis is a competing paper run by tough as nails lady Charity Hackett (Again,What a name) …they hate each other…so OBVIOUSLY we know they are going to fall in love right…ahhh how I love the movies.
29. Bells are Ringing (1960)
I was hoping to love this a lot more then I did. Judy Holiday is hilarious and it had it’s moments, but the music is pretty forgettable. The thing I loved most about this, was the cast!
Not to mention Dean Martin was one handsome son of a gun!
Shout out goes to Jean Stapleton who plays Sue…are very own Edith Bunker!
Can’t ya just hear her calling for her ‘Archhhhie’
Judy Holiday, you were an amazing actress and taken away from us far to early. Your oscar winning portrayal in Born Yesterday is hilarious and well deserved…despite the whole Gloria Swanson/Bette Davis war. Lovely!
30. Love Me or Leave Me (1955)
Maybe Doris Day’s best performance and arguably James Cagney’s as well…although his performance in everything ESPECIALLY White Heat is oscar worthy. What an Actor.
I had no idea what this movie was about until I popped it in the ole dvd player. A little long but the acting and songs make it well worth it. The chemistry between the two actors despite the age difference is suprisingly effective.
A fictionalized account of the career of jazz singer Ruth Etting and her tempestuous marriage to gangster Marty Snyder, who helped propel her to stardom.
Shout out Pic of James Cagney FOR BEING AWESOME…
31. Love Me Tonight (1932)
Jeanette MacDonald and Maurice Chevalier team up again…and i liked this one a lot better then The Love Parade. I especially love the opening sequence…IT’S AMAZING…Maurice begins to sing and the WHOLE village knows the lyrics…I loved it.
What a lover boy!!
Jeanette MacDonald is super cute in this BUT it’s Myrna Loy who takes the cake in this one…one of her first showy roles.
32. For Heaven’s Sake (1950)
CUTE CUTE CUTE and Clifton Webb is hilarious…Hard to believe after seeing him in such snobbish roles…like Laura. Excellent charming film. Watch this one.
Clifton Webb and Edmund Gwenn are two angels who come to Earth to help get a couple kids born…ok nottttt in that way *wink wink*
A little girl (not born yet…but somehow manages to look 10 lol) has selected the parents she wishes to be hers (Joan Bennett and Robert Cummings). But they are so involved in their theater work, they have no time to get it on… SOOO That’s where Gwenn and Webb come in…hehehe JUST WATCH THE MOVIE! You’ll love it
Clifton Webb’s Gary Cooper impression is hysterical
Shout out pic of Clifton for making me love this film!
Joan Bennett and Robert Cummings are the soon to be parents.
Pic of Joan Bennett, becasue she’s never looked more beautiful in a movie
Not to mention she rox my sox…becasue she is awesome on Dark Shadows! GO JOAN!
33. All I Desire (1953)
Barbara Stanwyck is enough to make me watch anything she’s in…so of course i enjoyed this film.
In 1900, Naomi Murdoch deserted her small-town family to go on the stage. Some ten years later, daughter Lily invites Naomi back to see her in the Riverdale high school play. Her arrival sets the whole town abuzz, wakes up old conflicts, and sets off new emotional storms
Another Pic of Barbara just because…
Maureen O’Sullivan…you didn’t have a chance in this film…sorry about your luck. OUCH!
34. Mister Scoutmaster (1953)
Here we have Clifton Webb again in an unusual comical role. The thought of it alone makes me laugh. He plays a Snobby TV star who worries that he is out of touch with the younger generation and that’s why his TV show is failing. He becomes a Boy Scout leader in an effort to “get in touch.” Overnight hikes and other adventures follow, all centered around one small boy who takes a liking to him.
That little boy is George ‘Foghorn’ Winslow…who you might recognize as the little boy who has a very cute scene with Marilyn Monroe in Gentleman Prefer Blondes
Look at his face…i think he’s saying JACKPOT!
Frances Dee (I’m married to Joel ‘Who’s more handsome then you can imagine’ McCrea) plays Webb’s wife…
I’m gonna stop here and do an upcoming Barbara Stanwyck edition…since the next 5 flicks I’ve watched already involve her.
266 More to go! Toodles!
