Plinky Question of the Day


The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.


Name your favorite old movie.


It’s a toss up between:

Casablanca Happier Times  Casablanca Piano scene

Casablanca Bar Scene   Casablanca



Casablanca makes me sigh out loud every single time I watch it.  What?  You haven’t seen it?!  Okay stop reading and go check it out.  Seriously.

This was my grandma’s favorite movie and it always reminds me of her when I watch it or listen to the soundtrack.



My inquiring mind wants to know. What are some your favorite old movies?


  1. Great pics! Mine is Rear Window by Hitchcock. It's a murder mystery :)

  2. @Juju - Great pick! That's one of my fave Hitchcock movies.

  3. I'm not really a big movie person, and so I haven't seen a lot of old movies. I'd probably have to go with the movie Catch-22 which I had to watch after reading the book. The movie was made in 1970...

  4. "The hills are alive". Ok I will shut it. Love that movie too. My favorite is Singing in the Rain. Gene Kelly has the moves like Jag....ok shuting up now.

  5. I'm a TCM junkie so I have a zillion favorite old movies. The Thin Man series is brilliant and incredibly funny. Charlie Chan delivers some excellent mysteries and I love his detective skills. Meet Me in St. Louis, and really anything with Judy Garland, makes me happy. I adore Audrey Hepburn, especially My Fair Lady. I'll stop now but honestly, I could talk old movies forever:)

  6. @Amanda - Haven't seen that one. Did you like it?

    @Rain Maiden - LOL! Don't stop on account of me. ;-) I looove Singing in the Rain too. Good mornin', Good mornin', It's great to stay up late,
    Good mornin', good mornin' to you. Okay now I'll shut up.

    @Anna - I recently watched Meet Me in St. Louis and loved it. Love me some Audrey too. Breakfast at Tiffany's is a CLASSIC!

  7. Coming late to this party but since the holidays are just past I have to say "The Bishop's Wife" with Cary Grant and Loretta Young. Then there is any pic with Goldy Hawn and Chevy Chase. Love them together. Then there is "Young Frankenstein" funny! and "The Way We Were" so-o-o romantic! Oh, and all the Peter Sellers "Pink Panther" movies.

  8. I have also made a list of favorite old movies. This is the last post in a series on them
