Lots of us are spending more time watching television these days. Thankfully, Marvin and I have a nice collection of DVDs that we are enjoying. I thought I would share three of my favorite old time movies.
1. Meet Me in St Louis
This movie is set in St Louis at the turn of the 20th century as the city prepares for the World Fair. The Smith Family is comprised of four daughters and one son. It is rather a comedy of errors as the young people are all flirting and enjoying life.
Esther( Judy Garland) and her little sister, Tootie ( Margaret O'Brien) entertain at a party at the Smith Home. Who can beat Judy Garland at singing and dancing.
2. The Women
Norman Shearer is one of m favorite OLD Time actresses.
This movie is all about women and you will not see one man in the whole film.
3. My Favorite Wife
I cannot resist Cary Grant.
Of course all works out in the end....and we see Cary dressed as Santa Claus in the last scene.
Many of these films were made during hard times so they are pure escapism. I don't know about you but a little escapism fits the bill for me.
