When I say, you say #1: "Ireland"

This is a brand new series of post that my mind recommend me today to do and play with you. When I say, you say works this way: I just pick a word and you leave a comment with the first classic movie, actors, scenes, passages from books about movies, etc. you think of when you read that specific word.

Example: If I pick the word "bear" and I relate it with Classic Movies, the first thing that comes to my mind is the anecdote that Ginger Rogers told in her autobiography about a bear climbing to the roof of her car while she was  traveling with...someone. Maybe in your case you remembered a scene of a movie that involved a bear, maybe a character named that way, etc. 

Remember, the first thing that comes to your mind, even if it's vague. And obviously don't worry if more people wrote the same before you. It's going to be fun to know how our mental maps are designed :)

So, if I say IRELAND, you say...

  2. Haha, I'm gonna confuse this wonderful game a little:

    In THE PLAINSMAN (with Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur/ 1936) Buffalo Bill says to his young wife, "We have to bear with this country."
    Well, she was wheeling the broom, but the wind blew the stuff back into their den. ;)

  3. The Quiet Man! Great movie with the amazing John Wayne and great Irish actress Maureen O'Hara. Yay! Also I'm more than a little Irish, unfortunately didn't inherit the Maureen O'Hara/Greer Garson hair :-(

  4. "In Old Chicago"!

    because it was Mrs. O'Leary's cow that kicked over the latern and started the Great Chicago fire!

    or Thomas Mitchell

    haha.

    (And it's funny, I thought of that same Ginger Rogers incident when you said 'bear.)

  7. The Secret of Kells. The movie might not yet be a classic, but the Books of Kells is.

  8. The Quiet Man, naturally! I'm hopelessly in love with that movie, and it's so ridiculously romantic. In a good way of course! ;D

  9. Thanks everyone for sharing your obscure thoughts :) Just kidding. Yeah, like most of you for me, Ireland and classic movies equals "The Quiet Man" (just wrote "The Thin Man", LOL).

    Audrey: Same here :)

    Page: I didn't remember that she was actually Irish! LOL.

    Bette: Oh, you don't need the hair, you rock the same anyway :)


    Caroline, I had no idea the movie you mentioned even existed, I'm so getting it :)

    joe: I love that movie!! Especially the song of Pangur Ban, and of course the story and the animation and everything.

    Jessica: Never heard about "In old Chicago", I'll get it and see it :)

    Emm & Sophie: Nice to read you again, girls!! And of course I agree with you :)

    Clarissa: Just saw "The Plainsman" the other day and I noticed the scene you mentioned, the poor girl had almost cleaned the whole house and the stupid wind messes all up!
