Old Movies

I was checking out freeview tv when it was pointed out to be that just freeview alone shows hundreds of films every month with several channels devoted to particular genres. I was surprised how many old films are shown and wondered how many still enjoyed old films from the 50s and 60s and whether youngsters take an interest.

I really enjoy a lot of the old stuff. Some are not my genre, but that is said for all generations of films.

A selection of ones I love watching are the old Ealing comedies, Will Hay films ( with Moore Marriott and Graham Moffatt ), the Carry On's, Old Westerns, 60's spy films, I could go on and on.

Like Tumbleweed I love lots of the old ones. I don't watch much TV but I do sometimes watch TPTV and that is ALL old films. It's on freeview 81, Sky 328 and freesat 306.

I very rarely watch a film, I much prefer a series, I find with a film I've just started to get to know the characters and the story then its over.

I love old movies. This is a fairly recent thing which happened after I watched African Queen and got the bug.
I might have my indoor swimming pool taken out and a small cinema put in its place.

I watched "The L shaped Room" (Leslie Caron) and one of my favourites, "Passport to Pimlico", on Talking Pictures this last week. I still have "In which we Serve" and "There's a Girl in my Soup" waiting on my TIVO box. I have also kept "Boy on a Dolphin" (Sophia Loren and Alan Ladd) and "The African Queen" to watch again. Christmas time I watched the original "Dunkirk" (John Mills), better than the recent version in my opinion, and "Crooks Anonymous" (Julie Christie and Leslie Philips).
