TESTIMONY: My mom basically introduced me to them by getting them out from the collection at our local library. I fell in love immediately with the classic
movies and movie stars. The stars have so much more personality and individuality than today in their acting styles and personalities. Classic films have the best music and dancing, as well as some of the best comedies. During high school, our high school library contained a donated collection of over 5000 movies (seriously) from a teacher who passed on and I would take out a stack of them every week to watch. I feel classic movies are unappreciated and are a national treasure. They are important for their historical, cultural and societal information not to mention being more entertaining than most modern movies.
