Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm starting a classic movie club at my college, Chapman University, and was hoping to get some feedback about the movies that I have chosen to show throughout the year. I was planning to screen one a week and have background info on it to pass out to people who attend. I've decided to have each month cover a different genre and was trying to get a pretty good variety of movies; and actors too. If any of you know a really great movie that I don't have up there and don't know about I would really appreciate your input. Thank you so much, here's the line up:

 

Sept- Comedy

A Night at the Opera

It Could Happen to You

Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer

The Apartment

Born Yesterday

 

October- Horror

Invisible Man

Hunchback of Notre Dame

Freaks

The Picture of Dorian Gray

 

November- Adventure/Mystery/ Noir

Captain Blood

The Thin Man

Laura

*Need One More*

 

December- Christmas

White Christmas

*Need One More*

 

February- Drama

Roaring 20's

Rebecca

San Francisco

*Need Two More*

 

March- Westerns

Fort Apache

*Need three more*

 

April- Musicals

Maytime

Footlight Parade

Moon Over Miami or Springtime in the Rockies

*Need Two More*

 

May- New Classic Movie

Here I would like to show a newer movie that is considered a classic

 

Thank you again for your time!

FOR NOVEMBER (ADVENTURE) I WOULD SUGGEST THE 1952 VERSION OF SCARAMOUCHE.

 

FOR CHRISTMAS: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)

 

FOR DRAMA- FEBRUARY:

 

DODSWORTH (1936)

DARK VICTORY (1939)

 

WESTERNS:

 

RED RIVER (1948)

THE SEARCHERS (1956)

UNION PACIFIC (1939)

 

FOR MUSICALS:

 

KISS ME KATE (1953)

SILK STOCKINGS (1957)

 

FOR A NEWER MOVIE CONSIDERED A CLASSIC: DEFINITELY 1997'S "L.A. CONFIDENTIAL"....A TRUE GEM

I wanted to thank everyone who answered my request for movie ideas for my Classic Movie Club I started at Chapman University. We have already had two movie nights that were so much fun!

This week is Holiday 1938 and next week is The Apartment 1960. Thanks again!

Hey Carla,

I'm kind of a movie expert. Classic movie expert. I love movies that have on the edge of your seat, movies that have your jaw hanging and mouth open, movies that can tear you up, movies that make you look at yourself and want to make a change, movies that make you say I wish movies were like that today, basically movies that tell a story. Here's a few you should show your club.

The Women

Angels with Dirty Faces

Ladies They Talk About

Gold Diggers of 1933

Night Nurse

Three on a Match

A Star is Born- both versions

The Gang's All Here

Gilda

Cover Girl

A Letter to Three Wives

The Desperate Hours

Hallelujah

I have more, email me at MsLadySoul@aol.com

I wish I could be apart of your club=)
