My husband is a movie fanatic! He's got a huge collection from VHS to DVD. His taste in movies is not my taste. Last night he was watching a war movie from the 60's with Steve McQueen, Fess Parker, and Bobby Darin. I'd prefer to be watching something like You've Got Mail or Sabrina. Actually, I'd prefer even the older versions of either of these movies. Nora Ephron's You've Got Mail (1998), with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan was a remake of a movie called Shop Around the Corner (1940) with Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullavan. The Sabrina movie originally starred Humphry Bogart, Audry Hepburn and William Holden in 1954, but I really loved the newer version (1995) with Julia Ormond, Greg Kinnear, and Harrison Ford. I thought Julia Ormond was just beautiful and she was dressed in that gorgeous party gown.
I know that I am in the minority, loving old movies, but I just want to be entertained when I spend two hours watching a movie! How about you? What is your favorite?
