Be My Guest - Lorie
1.) Name your ten favorite classic movie actors/actresses.
Me: Once Lorie led off with Cary Grant, it was all good. I have no arguments with her other choices as well. I especially love Babs, Jimmy, Bob, Audrey, Vivien and Lucy.
2.) Name at least 10 of your favorite films.
Lorie: Bringing Up Baby, Father Goose, The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, Gone With The Wind, Meet Me In St. Louis, It's A Wonderful Life, My Fair Lady, The Wizard Of Oz, Son Of Paleface, White Christmas.
Me: Awesome list Lorie, especially the first three, which happen to feature my man Cary. I knew My Fair Lady, It's A Wonderful Life and Gone With The Wind were your favorites as much as you have talked about them at work.
Lorie: My mom introduced me to My Fair Lady as a teen-ager and that's when I fell in love with classic movies and Audrey Hepburn. We still watch that movie around Thanksgiving every year.
Me: That's great Lorie. My Fair Lady is a great first movie to get anyone hooked on classic movies.
4.) Describe the perfect way for you to watch a classic movie.
Lorie: Of course you have to watch classic movies with someone that appreciates the classics. The movies were so simple-they didn't have all of the special effects, the blood and gore, etc. But they always kept you yearning for more. You also have to have a bowl of popcorn to enjoy a good movie.
Me: I agree Lorie. I don't think too many movies of today will be remembered 30-40 years from now with the same reverence as the classics of yesterday.
5.) What is your favorite classic movie decade?
Lorie: The movies of the 40's, 50's and 60's are definitely my favorites. I don't know if I could honestly say that I prefer one decade over the other.
Me: Can't argue with any of those choices. I'm partial to the 30's but I love all older movies so all the decades are fine with me.
6.) Name a few of your favorite modern actors/actresses
Me: I like all those you named especially Nic and Debra.
7.) Name a few of your favorite modern films
Lorie: The Family Man, Pretty Woman, Enchanted, The Wedding Date
Me: I recently saw The Wedding Date and me and Stephanie loved it. Of course I remember Pretty Woman when it first came out. Made Julia a star. Good movie, especially with her friend Kit.
8.) What is your favorite movie quote?
Monty: Great choice. And what made that quote by Rhett so good was that he had the perfect set up for it after Scarlett asks "Rhett... if you go, where shall I go, what shall I do?" And then Rhett comes back with his killer response.
9.) What stars besides your favorites would you have love to have met in person?
Lorie: Danny Kaye, Bette Davis
Me: Good choices once again Lorie.
10.) What's your favorite genre?
Lorie: Comedy - especially the movies with the team of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.
Well that concludes my monthly be my guest post and I would like to thank Lorie for coming by to answer a few questions. I hope everyone enjoyed her guest appearance and I will be back next month with another friend to join in on the fun.
