Just ordered a bootleg of my favorite B Western WACO. It has an interesting contrast: Howard Keel's the star, yet Lorne Greene sings the title song!
I just ordered Holy Matrimony (1943), starring Monty Woolley and Gracie Fields. I saw this on TCM some time ago and really liked it. The other day, I watched a film I'd never seen from a large boxed set, called His Double Life (1934), starring Roland Young and Lillian Gish, and one of the scenes rang a bell. I thought it might be the same story as Holy Matrimony. I looked up the author of the story and found out that sure enough, both movies were based on the same story. Both versions are good, and now I will have both of them.
It's been a really long time since I bought a DVD for myself, but I just placed an order in honor of my birthday this Saturday. I ordered Almost a Bride, starring Shirley Temple and David Niven, which I've never seen, and Road to Rio to replace my copy that got lost. I also got from a friend a Jean Harlow boxed set which replaces two movies I really liked, one of which went missing and the other of which stopped playing. The two are The Girl from Missouri and Personal Property. I think I will order another DVD soon. There's something else I need to order from Amazon that qualifies for free shipping, so I might as well add a DVD.
I just ordered The Shaggy Dog. I like having a bunch of feel good movies from my childhood around when I need a good pick-me-up. Shortly before that I bought The Parent Trap. I haven't had a chance to watch them yet, but I'm looking forward to it!
Most of my collection is feel-good movies. I just ordered a portable DVD player, as my last one died several years ago. I am so much looking forward to watching movies in bed again. That is the ultimate coziness! I can't wait till it arrives.
I couldn't see the spreadsheet.
I'm so excited - I just tracked my package, and my portable DVD player will be arriving today, not tomorrow! I have been saving my two new DVDs to watch in bed on this player.
