If you could walk into a film and stay there, which one would you choose?

What a great question rainingviolets21! Since this child of the 50's and 60's always felt that she belonged in the 40's, I would have to choose SINCE YOU WENT AWAY. This film conveys what life was like during the era that I hold so dear. It would be wonderful to step into the Hilton home and sit by the fire with Soda. 8^D

"FredC,Dobbs you just gave me a wonderful idea for a thread - Thank you..."

 

RainingViolets, I would love to walk into the homespun Americana of "Four Daughters." Oh there are swankier places to be ("To Catch A Thief," the Riviera and Cary Grant) but right about now with SuperTuesday just about to end and our world just about to change, swinging on a white picket fence with the adorably boyishly handsome Jeffrey Lynn would suit me just fine. For now...

Wonderful question, Raining Violets.

 

1. To Catch a Thief

2. Only Angels Have Wings

3. Fallen Angel (I'd like to see Stella at Pop's. Please.)

4. Macao (I'd like to gamble with a blonde casino worker.)

5. Casablanca

 

I probably should pick a film like It's Great to Be Alive, but I'll behave.

Wow, that's a challenging question because it's so hard for me imagine sticking around forever in just one scenario! Well, I can't choose *Gone with the Wind* unless I can change the ending and be a little smarter than Scarlett was, so...oh, phooey, I'm going to list several anyway because I simply cannot narrow it down to one. I could happily enter any of these worlds:

 

Charade

The Thin Man

My Man Godfrey

High Noon

Saratoga Trunk

To Catch a Thief

Friendly Persuasion

The Hanging Tree

Emma

Captain Blood

Laura

Prince of Foxes

Soldier of Fortune

Thanks, Fred, I wasn't sure if anyone liked that one or not. That was my second choice after Mr. Brocklehurst in Jane Eyre, but that one was just too warped to be funny.

 

My real choice would be Meet Me in St. Louis, where the only real concern in life was the quality of the ketchup.

This has to be my fav question I have seen. I don't know why I did not see it earlier. Man where to start. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I would love to live in that cinematograhy and be able to leap like that. Beautfiul film, intelligent people, great skilled people, beautfiul people. On another note, I would not want to walk into Glengarry Glen Ross.

I would say any Errol Flynn Movie but there's always so much action and killing that I'd probably be one of the charactors that gets killed right away. Maybe Footsteps in the Dark. Or maybe the Adventures of Don Juan. Just to watch his beautiful face close up.

The others would be the musicals like any Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly.

And anything with Omar Shariff.
