I have a keen movie interest and therefore I would like to recommend some lush movies I have seen recently. Most of them are what most people would refer to as “oldies”, but I think some of the best movies was made in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. If you are expecting to see masterpieces by famous directors, you are wrong. I watch movies that make me feel good, happy or movies that has a certain feel to them. And that is all that counts.
Very nice timepiece showing the life of some career women of the 1950s. Think of Working Girl meets Sex and the City. Has some great New York shots and a lush musical score by Alfred Newman.
Frank Sinatra also had a
brief movie career and this is the second movie about his alter ego Tony Rome who works as a private detective in Miami, Florida. Great music by Hugo Montenegro and some very nice Miami shots. I believe they used the same hotel as they did in Goldfinger in one of the scenes.
This is the original movie, not the crappy remake with Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn. The premise is about the same though. Jack Lemon is going to New York with his wife where he is about to take a new job. But the trip turns out to be a one way to hell and back.
Melodrama about a bomber on board an airplane, an airport almost closed by snow, and various personal problems of the people involved. Nominated for 10 Oscars, but only won one for best actress in a supporting role. George Kennedy is hilarious, Dean Martin plays a airline pilot.
The first movie in a series of three starring Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall. This is one of those 60s sex comedies about trying to get the opposite sex attracted to you. Very light weight entertainment which will appeal to anyone who like comedies. If you have seen Down with Love you will instantly recognize where the screenwriter got the inspiration from.
