Here's this month's review of all the movies I watched (which turned out to be quite a small number, but I'll get to that eventually). Before I start, I wanted to point out that last month's 'review' post was supposed to be about April, not March, which it was only I titled the darned thing wrong, and I wanted to thank you kind folk for not pointing that out and making me feel like an idiot. Anyhoo...now, May:
Number of Movies Seen: 9 in 31 Days - that comes out to around one movie every 3 days, I think. And my explanation for the lack of films-seen is the fact that we had people staying with us for three out of four weeks this month. That's a good excuse, right?
3 Favorite Movies: Now, this is hard because, despite the number of films I watched, most of them were rather fantastic. Favorite three, though, would have to be: Gilda (1946), Trooper Hook (1957), and The Country Girl (1954). Honorable Mention: Three Smart Girls (1936).
Least Favorite Movie: The Secret Bride (1934). Sad, I know, that my least favorite was a Missy movie, but what can I say? It was weird. Even Stany seemed somewhat out of her element in that one.
Movie I Will Recommend to Everyone: The Country Girl (1954). Grace Kelly deserved that Oscar. Everyone deserved an Oscar. Bing Crosby deserved an Oscar. It really was such a good movie. Note: I'm planning to review this. Note: I'm still working on that review of The Lost Weekend (1945)
Favorite Leads: Actually, a lot of couples I liked this month, but let's say William Holden and Grace Kelly.
A New-To-Me Actress Worth Noting: Miriam Hopkins. I didn't like her at the beginning of the movie I saw with her in it, but by the end I had decided she was pretty darned cute.
A New-To-Me Actor Worth Noting: William Holden. Turns out, I've seen like six of his movies, but I always watch them because someone else is in them that I want to see and for that reason I forget he was even in them at all and I forget that it was another movie of his I can add to the list of his movies I've seen. Did that make sense? No? Basically: I like Bill Holden.
Most Watched Actress: Tie: Barbara Stanwyck/Rita Hayworth (Two Movies Each)
Most Watched Actor: Tie: Ray Milland/Glenn Ford (Two Movies Each)
Until Later On~
