What are your favorites? BP and I were discussing Loy and Powell today (what has to be one of the greatest on screen pairings of all time*) and it got me wondering.

I am addicted to Turner Classic Movies, but I know there must be films made prior to the 1980s that escaped my attention. I need some new ones to add to the list.

I have a soft spot for all the Astaire-Rodgers musicals because they're what got me hooked on old Hollywood but I love the screwballs comedies, the dramas, the sweeping romances, the epic tragedies. I've seen His Girl Friday and Bringing Up Baby probably more times than is healthy.


Let's talk about old movies
