I was watching Operation Petticoat with my daughter on Memorial Day. It is such a great movie and it reminded me of when I was my daughter’s age and would go visit my grandpa and grandma in Indiana. My grandpa had an amazing movie collection. It was during those times with him, I developed my love for old films.
James Dean only made 3 movies. It is astounding the impact this man had on the movie industry with so few feature films under his belt.
He was also a predominant feature on my walls for a very long time.
Cary Grant ALWAYS reminds me of my grandpa. His films were our favorite to watch together. From Operation Petticoat and Father Goose in my youth, to North By Northwest and Indiscreet in my teen years, we always found a Cary Grant film to enjoy together.
Tony Curtis was another 1950’s hottie. It seems he always played the playboy in his films. My favorite was Some Like It Hot with Jack Lemmon and Marilyn Monroe.
I’m not entirely sure this woman’s era, but click here for the Throwing Mike a Bone feature – Rita Hayworth,
