Born in the Wrong Century
1) I love silent movies.
2) Any movie in black and white.
3) The Rifleman.
4) Cult horror flicks from the 1950s.
Yesterday, I happened to flip onto the Turner Classic Movie channel and found this little gem starring Jack Benny and Ann Sheridan: George Washington Slept Here. It really had nothing to do with George Washington but it was sort of like Please Don't Eat The Daisies (another one of my fave movies) where a couple from New York decide to purchase a fixer-upper in the country. Of course, fun and frivolity ensued.
Black and white movies from the 1940's for me are like grilled cheese and tomato soup. They're just comforting in their campiness and predictability. I heart them.
