Fabulous Vintage Films, a great night in ...

Hi everyone.  Lately it's got quite expensive to spend an evening in the cinema, we've found it cheaper and more fun to watch our own movies at home, so buy in those snacks and delve into a treasury of archives. These are our most recently watched films:


Arsenic and Old Lace

1944 classic starring Cary Grant.  This is slapstick comedy at its best, I was smiling the whole way through.  The plot really is far-fetched, but the super quality acting and split-second timing carries this glorious farce through to the end.


The Singing Ringing Tree




1964 German fairytale which was serialised on UK television.  This is the full length film with either English sub-titles or voice-over (we watched with the voice-over).  This is a fascinating quirky film with the most horrid dwarf, and of course a prince and princess.  A wonderful film with a moral to tell.

Buy these and other recommendations through my British amazon.co.uk store, or American amazon.com store.  Enjoy!  This week I've also added a couple of my favourite Elizabeth Taylor films.

For more vintage gems go to the The British Film Institute's website. They're showing 'The Disney 50', from January-December 2011, all 50 Disney animated features.  Fantastic for the Easter holidays.

Oh well, my 13-year-old son still prefers Iron Man 2!!
