1. Name your top 10 favorite classic movies actors/actresses.
This changes all the time, but for now I'll go with: Olivia de Havilland, Ginger Rogers, Robert Montgomery, Claudette Colbert, Dana Andrews, Joel McCrea, Ray Milland, Greer Garson, Jean Arthur, Audrey Hepburn. (This was hard!)
3. Describe your first classic movie experience.
I grew up watching a lot of classic movies as a kid, so I don't know which was my first. My favorite movie as a young girl was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, though.
4. Describe the perfect way for you to watch a classic movie.
Huddled up in blankets, at night when it is quiet.
5. What is your favorite classic movie decade: the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's or 60's?
The 1940s. For some reason I just love that time period.
6. Name a few of your favorite modern movie actors/actresses.
I don't really have any! That's not to say I don't admire a performer for a certain performance, but I just don't have any definitive favorites. (I guess I need to watch more new movies!)
7. Name a few of your favorite modern films.
THE YOUNG VICTORIA
I love period and historical films a lot--North and South, The Young Victoria, Emma,
Life is Beautiful, The Pianist, Bella.
8. What is your favorite movie quote? can be more than one.
I love quotes, so I have a lot of favorites. But here are just a few:
Mr. Blandings (Cary Grant): "Nothing, Mary. Just a private joke between me and whoever my analyst is going to be." -Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House
Tony Kirby (James Stewart): "[…]It takes courage, you know. Everybody's afraid to live."
YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU
Alice (Jean Arthur): "You ought to hear Grandpa on that subject. You know he says most people nowadays are run by fear. Fear of what they eat, fear of what they drink, fear of their jobs, their future, fear of their health. They're scared to save money, and they're scared to spend it. You know what his pet aversion is? The people who commercialize on fear, you know they scare you to death so they can sell you something you don't need." (You Can’t Take It With You).
Jeff Bailey (Robert Mitchum): Nothing in the world is any good unless you can share it. --Out of the Past
9. What is your favorite classic movie series?
I haven't seen them all, but so far I'd say the films that Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn did together. I also love a lot of the Ginger/Fred musicals.
10. What is your favorite movie genre?
Depends on my mood…probably comedy, though I do love a good drama. :)
11. What stars, besides your favorites would you have loved to met in person?
Eve Arden, Gene Tierney, Linda Darnell, Grace Kelly, Cary Grant, and Irene Dunne come to mind. I'd be pretty happy to meet ANY old Hollywood star, though. :D
12. And finally, if you could be one movie character, who would it be and why?
Wow, that's hard! I guess I'll go with Judy Garland's character in Meet Me in St. Louis. If their biggest problem is the potential of moving, I think I could deal with that. :)
Thank you for allowing me to be your guest this month, Monty! It was a lot of fun. I enjoy following your blog and am looking forward to the upcoming classic actor competition you are hosting. I thought the March Madness one you did for the actresses was a lot of fun. Keep up the great work! :)
Thanks Audrey for stopping by and I loved your answers.
