Movies aren't something I talk about a lot on the blog, but I really love watching them,especially old films. They are just so comfortable for me; I'm not a fan of action movies or violence in movies and special effects usually don't blow me away, so this era of movies is perfect for me. The actors and actresses are all so beautiful and I love the humor. So here is a list of ten of my favorite classic movies, that I highly recommend you check out this summer.
Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish
1. Gentlemen Prefer Blondes-- Staring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell
This is a hilarious movie with great music, and Monroe is absolutely stunning in this film, it is impossible to take your eyes off of her.
2. Breakfast at Tiffany's-- Staring Audrey Hepburn
Duh! I don't even know how many times I have seen this movie.
3. The Seven Year Itch-- Staring Marilyn Monroe
Another super funny movie- and so iconic!
4. Rear Window-- Starring Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly
This is one of my favorite Hitchcock's and its really thrilling. Plus I love Jimmy Stewart.
5. Charade-- Staring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant
This is thrilling, suspenseful, unpredictable, funny and has the most beautiful man in all of history in it, Cary Grant.
6. Casablanca-- Staring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
Again. duh! I will never tire of this movie
7. It's a Wonderful Life-- Staring Jimmy Stewart
My mom and I watch this one every Christmas, and I still cry. I just love this movie so much!
8. Some Like it Hot- Staring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemon, and Tony Curtis
This movie always cracks me up. Monroe is a great comedy actress.
9. Barefoot in the Park-- Staring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda
Do you remember the show Dharma and Greg? He was an uptight lawyer and she was a hippie and they got married? Well this is the movie that the show is based off of. Plus, Robert Redford is too beautiful for this world.
10. The Big Sleep-- Staring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall
The over-the-top drama of this one sucked me in, and I loved every minute of this crime noir film. I want to watch more crime films for this era, and Bogart is a great actor for these tough guy roles.
