Receive any Classic films for Christmas?


Recommended Posts

How many of you received classic films as Christmas gifts this year?

 

I am happy to say that I now have 13 new films to watch.

 

I received

 

Errol Flynn Signature Collection Vol 1 containing:

-Captain Blood

-Dodge City

-The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex

-The Sea Hawk

-They Died with Their Boots On

 

Myrna Loy and William Powell Collection containing:

-Manhattan Melodrama

-Love Crazy

-Evelyn Prentice

-Double Wedding

-I Love You Again

 

Rock Hudson & Doris Day Collection containing:

-Pillow Talk

-Love Come Back

-Send Me No Flowers

 

Plus I also have an Errol Flynn documentary to watch and I also received the "I Love Lucy" Color Christmas Special to go with my collection.

 

Suffice it to say, I'm going to be very busy watching (and rewatching a few) my new movies.

That's a great bunch of box sets you got there!

 

My goal is to have fewer DVDs though.

 

TCM occasionally broadcasts a film I've never seen (or heard of) that stars a fave of mine, and THAT'S a present in itself for me.

 

December it was a Bob Hope film PRINCESS & THE PIRATE and January Eddie Cantor & Ethel Merman in STRIKE ME PINK. Yay!

No movies, but my brother and sister in law gave me a DVD set of classic "Twilight Zone" episodes.

 

And as mentioned in another thread, I bought a DVD copy of "A Christmas Carol" with Alistair Sim for myself.

I only asked for one - - Fanny. Reason, in addition to really liking this film, I plan to have my second movie night with my 17 year old grand niece. Since the first film was Gigi, thought I'd stick with Leslie Caron plus hoping she will enjoy the romance.

By the way, I did get a very unexpected gift (from family, no less) in Robert Osborne's new book on Oscar. It's a beautiful book and will make a great reference.

No DVDs, but close --- a CD. I got the complete original soundtrack score from *It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World* (1963). This 2-disc set features music cues not found on the 1963 LP version, which was actually a re-recording of the film's score by the Hollywood Studio Orchestra (which makes up disc 2 of this set). On disc 1 --- the music from the film's original 6-track composite soundtrack, as performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by composer Ernest Gold himself. Thank you, Ray Faiola!!

Sorta, Kinda, but not really ;)

I finally got the TCM coffee mug I've been asking for from my children.

I like to buy my own classic movies as I just recently purchased:

 

* Shane

* Come Back Little Sheba

 

To give credit to my kids, they would never be able to even take a guess for the exact movies I'd like and the list would be too long for them to choose from.

I have over 200 classic films in my library now and counting.
