My local library is going to have an I Love Lucy day near Lucille Ball's birthday and have an I Love Lucy marathon. I'm very excited about it!
This is the first time something local (that I've known about) is doing something classic. Is there a place in your town/city that does something special with classic movies or stars? Like my library is doing?
I just thought I would make a small introduction since I just joined. =)
My name is Katy. I'm 17 years old. I've been watching classic movies since I was a kid. I would say my favorite actress is Judy Garland. I think she's just the best. I couldn't say who is my favorite actor because there are many that I really like. I wrote movie reviews at my journal (they're more of modern movies than classic though).
I just posted icons with Audrey Hepburn and Judy Garland over at my journal, if you're interested. =)
I have dial-up so I cannot view vids like I'd like to, but do any of you ever enjoy those classic montages featuring modern music on YouTube? I was looking at some the other day while I was at my bro's house and felt inspired. So I created one of my own, featuring Lloyd and music via Leo Sayer. It came out alright (I'd post it if I had a DVD-burner on my comp) but I was curious if anyone else makes these? Or enjoys them, at least.
Danny mentioned this in her first posting and some of us touched on it, but I thought I'd ask outright...
Warning: My story is extremely dull and vague...
The first old movie I remember seeking out is Casablanca; this was probably about three years ago... I knew someone who was crazy about it, so I wanted to check it out. I liked it, but I regret to say that watching Casablanca didn't immediately spark a huge passion for classics... I think I saw a few more Bogart movies, but that's about it. At some point awhile after this, for some reason or another, I became curious about this old movie thing again, and I started watching some more Bogart and Cary Grant... After them, the next things I got into were Hitchcock and the Marx Brothers... And from there it gradually just started snowballing, especially from I think about a year and a half ago, to my present state of spending way too much time watching classic films. XD
