UGH. She’s still into old movies…really?! If you made it this far, I simultaneously congratulate and thank you!

As the description says, THIS IS WHY I LOVE CLASSIC FILMS. While I appreciate a gritty character-driven drama or film noir as much as the next person, THIS is what I truly love about Old Hollywood- the funny, goofy, vibrant, giddy moments that make these films so unforgettable. This video has no form or structure and is just a mash-up of some my favourite stars and moments from their films. I also tried to choose as many films as I could that didn’t appear in either “Lovers in Japan” or “Bittersweet Symphony”. I want each video to be new and surprising- hopefully I achieved that for you guys!

SIDE NOTE – This has to be the only video on YouTube to feature both Franchot Tone AND Ralph Bellamy. And purposefully at that!

As for the quote at the beginning…well, I can’t really explain that except to say that Edward Everett Horton and Eric Blore are sensational. “But hornet’s nests grow on trees, sir…” I hope it makes you laugh…I don’t know, maybe it’s something only I find funny (although, admittedly, after watching it upwards of 100 times, the humour of the situation is lost on me). If that is the case, I sincerely apologise. And feel free to skip the first 25 seconds of the video. I hope the rest is to your liking!

Oh and the quote at the end of the video is from “Holiday” which is one of my FAVOURITE FILMS EVER. If you haven’t seen it, SEE IT.
