MelissaAnne's TEN FAVORITE CLASSIC MOVIES
Listed here, in no particular order, are my all-time feel-good classic movies, the kind where you want to snuggle under a blanket with a cup of hot cocoa and a warm chocolate chip cookie, and enjoy...
Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour - One of my favorite films - I first watched it on PBS. Very funny, very clever.
Joan Fontaine, Arturo de Córdova - Lush, period piece based on Daphne Du Maurier's novel (which I also read and loved). Wonderfully romantic.
Barbara Stanwyck, Gary Cooper - Another movie I saw on PBS as a pre-teen. Witty and heartwarming.
Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews - Wow. Gripping and romantic at the same time. First movie in which I discovered the very handsome Dana Andrews.
Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison. Wonderfully romantic and funny at the same time. A true classic.
Cary Grant, Leslie Caron. Wonderful comedy with a great romance. Cary Grant shines as the grouchy old bachelor who must take care of a schoolteacher and her students during World WarII.
Frank Sinatra, Trevor Howard - A gripping war drama. I loved Frank in this.
John Wayne, Richard Burton, Robert Mitchum, and a host of others. By far the best war movie - about the Invasion of Normandy. I try and watch this every Memorial Day.
Cary Grant, Debora Kerr, Robert Mitchum, Jean Simmons. Delightful cast and story. Jean Simmons is hilarious and Robert Mitchum is a hunk.
Jeanne Crain, Dana Andrews. One of my favorite musicals of all time. The setting is so idealic, the story so romantic, that you want to literally find a time machine to travel back to the Iowa State Fair in the 1940s.
