Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

Last night I had the chance to watch To Kill a Mockingbird. Now I’ve seen this movie (and read the book) back in grade 11; but I will admit that the only parts I’ve seen were the ones I was awake for. Continuing on…

Even though the movie was in pure black and white, the sets were very primitive and there were no fancy gimmicks with graphics…I absolutely adored it. It was acting at its finest; not to mention, this was probably one of the off times where the movie lives up to the book.

Gregory Peck was definitely the McDreamy of those days.

I have seen my fair share of classic movies here and there, but something about re-watching To Kill a Mockingbird sparked something in me. It could be that there were no elaborate sets to take away from the raw acting; the story lines were simple but dramatic at the same time. Most of all, there was an element of romance within each movie, even if it is not from the romance genre.

So to note, I am going to add “watch classic movies” to my summer ‘To Do’ list. I’ve already watched the 1960’s Ocean’s Eleven and I’m thinking of watching: Birds, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Gone with the Wind within the next week.

Suggestions for other ‘classics’ are definitely welcomed!

  1. You should certainly watch Gone With the Wind. Of course, you’ll need nearly four hours of free time… But it’s definitely worth it. 🙂

    I must warn you that, although The Birds is very suspenseful, the slow storyline and the constant screeching of the winged antagonists became somewhat irritating. For a good thrill, try Hitchcock’s masterpiece Psycho (1960), if you haven’t seen it. Rear Window (1954) and To Catch A Thief (1955) are also superb, though not as intense.

    The Audrey Hepburn movie How To Steal A Million (1966, with Peter O’Toole) is also great fun.

    *shrug* Just some suggestions!

  2. Thank you for the suggestions!

    But once I’m free as a “Bird” (ha, get it?), I can’t wait to watch these movies. This exam cannot come soon enough..

    No, seriously, that was a pretty lame joke right?
