Friday Fives - Five Classic Movies I'd Like to Watch Soon

I'm taking a bit of a break from my usual Friday Linkups to try something a little different.  Michelle over at Because Reading is Better Than Real Life   used to do a Five on Fridays that I always enjoyed and I've seen a few other variations on the theme.  As well I'm in a list making kind of mood so I thought I'd give start making random five lists.  Sometimes they'll be bookish other weeks not so much. I'm also going to start linking up with Kathryn over at Book Date for her Connect Five.  Today I'm going through the schedule of one of my favorite cable channels - Turner Classic Movies and picking out five movies I'm looking forward to watching.


1.  The Red Shoes (1948) - I have actually seen this movie before but it was a VHS recording that wasn't particularly great quality at that.  It was kind of hard to tell if the people had actual faces and I feel like it needs to be rewatched.


2.  Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944) - This is another one I have seen before but I would really like to see it again.  I love Van Johnson and Spencer Tracy. 


3.  The Lady Vanishes (1938) - The main reason this made the cut is because I absolutely adore Dame May Whitty and will watch pretty much anything she is in.


4.  The Postman Always Rings Twice (1946) - I somehow have never seen this one even though John Garfield is one of my favorite actors and I have a soft spot for Lana Turner as she was one of my grandmother's absolute favorite actresses and loved all her movies.


5.  The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942) - I have seen this in play form multiple times and it's a favorite.  I love Bette Davis and Ann Sheridan and seeing them in this particular story I think would be really fun.

What are some of your favorite classic movies?

  2. I have not seen any of those and a couple I haven't heard of. I don't watch many old films but a couple that I love are Arsenic and Old Lace, Operation Petticoat, and Some Like it Hot.

  3. The Lady Vanishes is an absolute gem. It's one we regularly watch because of the humour and the tension, along with the creepiness. The dialogue is just magically good!

  5. I love TCM but lately it seems like whenever I'm browsing for something to watch, there's not much on that I'm interested in watching. I need to take a look at the schedule ahead of time so I can look for great stuff to plan for like you have.
