Another Old Movie Binge

It has happened again, I have gone on another classic movie watching binge. Sometimes I just want to see some crazy 60’s Givenchy outfits in action, you know?

How to Steal A Million(1966): Audrey Hepburn, Peter O’Toole, Eli Wallach

This is on Netflix right now. It’s pretty cute, and they give Hepburn some nutso outfits to wear. I have never really seen the appeal of Peter O’Toole until this movie. I get it now. His facial expressions are brilliant! Hepburn’s father is a forger that is getting in over his head selling forged artworks. He donates a forged sculpture to a museum and realizes he is in trouble when they set a date for forgery testing. Hepburn enlists private investigator, who she thinks is a thief, Peter O’Toole, to help her steal back the sculpture and keep her father out of jail.

Watching Old Movies, And Drooling Over the Clothing

I have been on an old movie watching kick lately and I tend to lean towards the comedies. I love the era when vaudeville is still transforming in to movie performance. I also love the hat era. Everyone used to wear hats and I love it!

Road to Rio (1947): Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dorothy Lamour, Gale Sondergaard

Dorothy Lamour is a rich woman whose evil, fabulously dressed Auntie, Gale Sondergaard, is hypnotizing her into marrying a fortune hunter. You know, like you do. Two showbiz stowaways on a stop her from leaping from the ship, in fabulous white gown, as her own erratic behavior has caused her to become suicidal. Many people are hyponotized, the Andrews Sisters sing with Bing, and Bob dresses up as Carmen Miranda. Essentially everything I enjoy in a silly movie!
