    Many, many black & white movies, circa 1030's -'40's, and a few from the 1950's

    I frequently stay up late watching old movies either on Turner Classic Movies or the Retro channel.
    I like this list.
    I like old movies.
    Mostly it just depends on how I'm feeling at any given time.
    The last time I watched the same movie more than 5 times it was Lake Placid. Weird, I know. just something about that movie that makes me laugh every time. Crocs eating people. Go figure.

    Yes,there is definitely a weirdness lurking in all of us!

    Unrelated to that, lately I have been into early Barbara Stanwyck movies, particularly the ones with a comedic vein Like: The Lady Eve, Christmas in Connecticut, and 4 or 5 others, the titles of which elude me at the moment.

    I am going to add Hidden Figures to my list! The movie theatre audience clapped at the end. I haven't seen that in a long time.

    Watched The Heiress yesterday (one of my favs). Seems early Sunday mornings, a channel has been playing lots of old movies I like.

    Don't know if this counts, but on PBS, there's Alone in the Wilderness. I am just fascinated with that show. It's about some 50'ish guy who gives it all up and relocates to Alaska to live by himself until he's in his 80's. He does all the work BY HIMSELF to build a cabin, fish & hunt, deal with the snow & cold, etc. No companions except for the airplane guy who delivers his mail & supplies, and any trappers or hikers.

    I am just FASCINATED. The resourcefulness of that guy is amazing. I think my Dad could have been somewhat as resourceful. I also like the background music (some kind of flute/harp). It puts me to sleep. I have it somewhat memorized like a groupie; I know what lines or scenes come next. If I'm flipping channels, that's it. I watch it.
