I have made a resolution to target down 21 films that I have to watch before July ends. This might sound simple, this might sound easy, but believe me, I was struggling to finish off three films in two days the previous week (and this comes from an unemployed high school grad!) so we'll see how I will cope with this new mission.

And the movie candidates are (in no particular order):

1. Singin' In the Rain (1952)
2. Casablanca (1942)
3. It Happened One Night (1934)
4. The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939)
5. Holiday Inn (1942)
6. Now, Voyager (1942)
7. The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)
8. Sabrina (1954)
9. The General (1926)
10. Kitty Foyle (1940)
11. The Quatermass Xperiment (1955)
12. Sidewalks of London (1938)
13. Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
14. Grand Hotel (1932)
15. Cleopatra (1963)
16. Gentleman's Agreement (1947)
17. Gone With the Wind (1939)
18. Shall We Dance (1937)
19. Blonde Crazy (1931)
20. The Philadelphia Story (1940)
21. Modern Times (1936)

What, you ask, is the purpose of this random movie marathon? Simply to expand my film knowledge. Then I can brag about it. And besides, almost all of these films are still foreign to me. Thus, people must think 'how dare she runs a classic film blog yet she haven't even seen Casablanca?' yeah, beats me too. Shame on me, shame on me.


  1. This is a great list! I don't have much time during the school year to watch films so I've been trying to watch as many as possible this summer to tide me over to Thanksgiving break (although I'm pretty sure I haven't managed 21 in one month). :)

    And now you've reminded me that I still haven't seen Gentlemen's Agreement even though I've been meaning to watch for the last 5 years!

  2. in my timezone i'm about to enter the 31st of July and I'm blundering around trying to finish my own list right here! Just how hard it is to finish such a simple task? But so far this has been very fun to do and the movies I've watched really opened my eyes about classic Hollywood; I'm falling further in love with the era now!

    Thanks for the lovely comment, Alix! :)
