    Tear Jearkers still...

    Oh, and add me to the list of people who cry all through *The Best Years of Our Lives*, but can't narrow it down to one moment. I'd like to mention one moment that always makes me cry: when Frederic March comes home and sees Myrna Loy, and she looks gorgeous as always, but she says, "I look terrible!" and they embrace. It's just too wonderful and so realistic--that's just how my mom would react. Their reactions are so wonderful that I cry along with them.

    Little known movies you love and would recommend

    So nice to hear of another LILI fan!! Isn't it so utterly uplifting? I think I'll watch it now. I thought of two other obscure movies: 1. Christmas in July--- I've only heard of it because it was on the Preston Sturges DVD set I got. It is a great film--hilarious, touching, all the things Preston's films usually are. And in my opinion Dick Powell's finest performances--he's so genuine. "If you can't sleep at night, it isn't the coffee, it's the bunk!" 2. The Last Man on Earth---A fun scary Better Than It's B-Budget movie with Vincent Price, need I say more? (It's basically what I Am Legend was based on; though it didn't get screen credit, it's a bit obvious)

    I too wouldn't call Gentleman's Agreement "intense" but I think it's great. And I hope you'll do yourself a favor and watch Roman Holiday. It cannot help but lift the spirits!
