  1. I'd consider His Girl Friday to be a romantic comedy, for sure.
  2. Yes. He was adorable. Utterly charming and elegant, yet with stunningly perfect comedic timing. All I have to do to bring a smile to my face is to picture Cary Grant walking into that bathroom when he doesn't believe there is a leopard in there in Bringing Up Baby. Perfect comedic timing. Brilliant.
  3. Glad you posted! I was hoping that you would! Your list is quite interesting. I probably should have included Brahms on my original list of favorites, and Schubert too, for that matter. Thought about going back to add Schubert, but was too lazy to do so, in the end. I have quite a few recordings as well. I would say Mozart is the most often-seen composer in my collection...although I have alot of Rachmaninov (including many different performers interpretations of the 2nd and 3rd piano concerto and Rhapsody on a Theme from Paganini - I tend to do that with many of my favorite comp
  4. My short list: Ball of Fire My Man Godfrey It Happened One Night Roman Holiday The Awful Truth Bringing Up Baby It's pretty hard to beat Cary Grant when it comes to romantic comedy though....
  5. Well, April, you actually know two of my favorite classical pieces, more than likely, as they are the opening/closing credits music of two films you have likely seen. *Brief Encounter (1945)* - Opening credits are the 1st movement of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto #2, Closing credits are the 3rd movement of the same concerto. *The Great Lie (1941)* - Opening credits are Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto #1 Also, I believe that I remember Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture being credits music for a classic film I saw, but I can't remember which one. All I remember is that I was watching a fi
  6. I enjoy a wide range of music - classical (including Opera), big band, easy listening, jazz, rock, and even some pop. I can find something to like in pretty much any genre except for rap, which I cannot STAND. My likes are also somewhat limited among country music listings as well, but I do like a couple of country artists, anyway. *Classical* - I am particularly partial to Mozart and Rachmaninov, but other favorites include Liszt, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and several others. My favorite pieces of instrumental classical music are: Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto #2 in C Minor
  7. Okay...so I wandered in here for the first time today, having a bit of free time on my hands (incredible in itself lately) and hoping to get the opportunity to ridicule and mock Frank Grimes, who is in dire need of massive quantities of mocking ridicule. I mean, anyone who cannot see the breathtaking talent and beauty of Gary Cooper is truly deserving of any and all ridicule thrown his way, as far as I am concerned. But, while I'm not gonna go back over 111 pages, I'm not seeing much ridicule in here. Needless to say, disappointment abounds. So what is it you guys use this thread f
  8. I don't know if you are in the U.S. or not, but alot of her films are coming out on DVD now, so you could watch them any time you like! They are coming out in a series of boxed sets - I think at least 3 of the sets are out, and another is on the way, if it isn't already out as well.
  9. I like James Cagney alot. Among his films there is something for everyone. I think my favorites are "Angels With Dirty Faces", and "Yankee Doodle Dandy". I've not seen all of his films - or probably even half of them! But all the ones I've seen, I really enjoyed. And even in his 'tough guy' roles, there is just an adorable quality to him that I can't really put my finger on.
