The other day read this Meme answered by Meredith from Forever Classic and now I'm answering it too!
1. Movie you love with a passion.
I love a lot of movies with a passion! I mean, I've listed 54 movies I adore, from The Sound of Music to Blonde Venus & 8 Classic Movies I can watch over and over... so you can't make me pick just one!!
2. Movie you vow to never watch.
Uhm, movies from Stewart Granger, one of the few actors I can't stand. I wrote why here. Also horror movies like The Exorcist because then I can't sleep.
3. Movie that literally left you speechless.
Literally? I don't remember being speechless after watching a Classic Movie (modern movies usually leave me speechless, like utterly shocking Requiem for a dream or Chilean Fuga). Old masterpieces make me talk and talk.
Well, some old movies had such sad endings that I couldn't say a word because I had a lump in my throat like The Wedding Night with Gary Cooper (re-watched it yesterday, and, yup, I ended crying again) or Disney's animated The Small One (gosh, this movie, I dare you not to cry!)
4. Movie you always recommend.
To women and girls I always recommend Roman Holiday. To guys, maybe, To have and have not (it's like Casablanca, but with more action I say to them). Then it depends on the old movie knowledge of the people I'm talking to.
5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie.
Audrey Hepburn (you have to be a fan to bare Bloodline or one of the worst movie I've ever seen) & Cary Grant (my least favorite movie from him is Operation Petticoat, looked really outdated).
6. Actor/actress you don't get the appeal for.
Have I mentioned Stewart Granger? Yes? Well, him, definitively.
7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you'd love to meet.
Living actresses: Olivia De Havilland, Lauren Bacall , Joan Fontaine, Maureen O'Hara, Eleanor Parker, Joanne Woodward.
Living actors: Sean Connery and Elli Wallach.
Stars that left us: I'd like to meet everyone really (except for Stewart Granger, obviously). Audrey, Cary, Gary, Errol, Carole, Clark, Deborah, Ginger, Jean Arthur, Paul Newman, Myrna Loy ETC ETC ETC.
8. Sexiest actor/actress you've seen. (Picture required!)
Gary Cooper, hands down
If you liked that pic, you should definitively check this gallery of photos from him I put together. I called it "Mercy". Or check my list of The 10 most handsome men from classic movies .
9. Dream cast.
This is really a difficult question. Some movies have already a dream cast: Cary and Audrey worked together in Charade and nailed it. Richard Burton, Deborah Kerr and Ava Gardner worked together in The Night of the Iguana and nailed it too. And what about the cast of Grand Hotel?
If I think of stars that I would like to see together I would mention maybe Errol Flynn and Gary Cooper and Cary Grant (Alice in Wonderland doesn't count). In an adventure movie. That would be...dreamy :)
Oh, I've also listed Old Hollywood stars you wish had worked together like Deborah Kerr & Laurence Olivier.
10. Favorite actor pairing.
Sooo many: Cary & Audrey in Charade; Cary & Carole in In name Only; Cary & Rosalind in His girl Friday; Cary & Ingrid in Notorious; Bogie & Bacall; Fred & Ginger; Errol Flynn & Maureen O'Hara in Against all flags; Greta Garbo & Robert Taylor in Camille; Paul Newman & Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid... I could go on forever really.
11. Favorite movie setting.
Rome in Roman Holiday. Ireland in The Quiet Man. I also like films that take place in the country, like In Name Only or Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.
12. Favorite decade for movies.
Couldn't tell: 30s, 40s, 50s.
13. Chick flick or action movie?
If I really have to choose one, I'd pick chick flick. But I love movies that mix both.
14. Hero, villain or anti-hero?
Villains drive me mad. Anti-heroes make me blue. Heroes are fun :)
15. Black and white or color?
So difficult! Can't choose, each one has marvelous qualities.
Hope you enjoyed!
