I’m keeping a list of great old black and white movies that I’ve seen and liked. These are all on Netflix. What are some of your favorites? Here’s my list:
“Stage Door Canteen” – Streaming
“Millions Like Us” – Streaming
“I Know Where I’m Going” – Streaming
“Brief Encounter” – Streaming
“Only Angels Have Wings”
“Bringing Up Baby”
“The Awful Truth”
“The Philadelphia Story”
“Love in the Afternoon”
“Anna Karenina” (with Vivien Leigh)
“St. Martin’s Lane”
“Holiday” – What a Film
For me, “Holiday,” with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn, isn’t just a film you watch. It’s a film you fall in love with.
It’s so high-spirited, and full of life. Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn are such an awesome pairing. The dialogue is sparkling. The storyline exhibits great verve. The acting seemed practically flawless to me.
By the end, I was completely hooked, and on the edge of my seat. And, it has what I call a ski jump ending. It’s a perfect ending which comes suddenly, and you find yourself still flying in the air after it’s over.
