I’m a sucker for a romantic movie especially the old classic films of the 30s-60s. In my opinion, movies were much better in the past compared today. The scripts were well written and the actors didn’t rely on special effects to make them or the film look good.
Here are my three favorite classic films:
- Gone With the Wind: It is a long film, but so worth watching. The chemistry between Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh is so captivating to watch on screen. The costumes are so amazing to look at along with the scenery.
- Rear Window: If you love watching psychological thrillers, this movie is for you. The recent film Distrubia is a modern remake of this film. Grace Kelly is amazing in this film and the plot will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time.
- Breakfast at Tiffany’s/ Roman Holiday: I love Audrey Hepburn! Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Roman Holiday are my two favorite films of hers. Her characters are hilarious and charming in both film. In addition, her clothes in both films are amazing and inspiring to look at.
Here’s my favorite quote from Breakfast at Tiffany’s:
“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, “Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.” You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.”
