Me: Who are some of your favorite classic movie stars Renata?
Renata: That’s easy, Monty. My absolute favorite actress is Irene Dunne, she’s just the best!! But I also adore Carole Lombard, Lupe Vélez, Carolyn Jones, Claudette Colbert, Barbara Stanwyck, Ruth Chatterton, Joan Fontaine and Jean Arthur (to name a few)….as of the male actors, my favorite is Charles Boyer, followed by Fred MacMurray, Cary Grant, Clark Gable, James Stewart, Fred Astaire, Robert Montgomery and Edward G. Robinson.
Me: Yeah, I remember that we have Irene and Carole in flip flop positions. And the rest of your choices are good as well. Nice to see Ruth Chatteerton up there.
Me: Ok, so what are some of your favorite classic movies?
Me: Nice selection there Renata. Thanks for going outside of your fave Irene movies box. Can't argue with any of those that you chose that I have seen.
Me: Describe your first classic movie experience. Like where did you watch it..with who, what film was it, etc...
Renata: Night time!! I hate watching movies during the day. I also enjoy watching movies when everybody else is sleeping (even my cat),lately it’s been a “must” to wait till my kitty falls asleep in order to watch a movie. It’s very peaceful to have her purring next to me and watch a classic movie at the same time. I just love it.
Me: That sounds wonderful Renata. You and my friend Irene would have a great time watching movies with you guys cats right there with you.
I think this is a good stopping point for part one of my interview with Renata. We will be back shortly with part two.
