I only glanced at these, but I do love movies. My parents were of the classic time period and so I feel like maybe I have seen more than your typical 36 year old (wow, that is old ).

Would you belive I was listening to My Fair Lady while I was reading this?
And I liked Philadelphia Story. One of the characters looked like our friend...dispite the fact they were two different genders.
