Gotta love an old movie. It’s true, they just don’t make them like they used to.
I went out the Borders yesterday (very early), avec coupon, to find something to buy at 40% off. Mysteriously, all the “good” DVD box sets that I have keeping my eye on were not on the shelves (like Wives and Daughters, which I have wanted, like, forever, though the price of $59.99 was a bit prohibitive… but I digress).
Anyway, I wandered through the books shelves, but nothing struck my fancy. Plus, I have about ten books laying about the house now that I have yet to open. So, it was back to the DVD racks to find something.
And there they were, two old movies that were not part of my collection, but I have always wanted:
Rebecca: Joan Fontaine & Laurence Oliver. I LOVE this film, even though there are times when I just want to slap the de Winters: Max, for being so arrogant and temperamental, and his new wife for being such a doormat.
War and Peace: The CHEESY, poorly cast, poorly acted, poor filmed, poorly directed, HORRIBLE regency era costumes, bad wigs… you get the picture… yet, I LOVE IT!!!!
