Hello, gentle readers!
I love movies! They are my way of relaxing. Doesn’t matter if they’re romantic comedies or dramas or action adventure, black and white or full color. I have my favorites, ones that I will watch time after time. Steel Magnolias (yes, I know the dialogue by heart by now). Pretty Woman (another fantastic movie…I like Runaway Bride, too, which paired Julia Roberts and Richard Gere again). Anything with Clint Eastwood or John Wayne. Anything with Hugh Jackman (I will admit, this man makes me drool…did you see Austraila? Oh my gosh!). Anything with my new favorite, Jason Statham. The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson)? Need I say more?
I was flipping through channels the other day and happened upon The Ghost and Mrs. Muir on Turner Classic Movies. It’s an old black and white love story with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison. I love this movie and yes, it really is a love story.
Ms. Tierney is a young widow who rents a house on the coast of
just happens to be haunted by the former owner, Captain Gregg, a sea-faring man
who delights in trying to frighten this young woman…to no avail. She’s tougher
and more stubborn than he plans on. There’s such tension between them…a living
woman and a man who has passed on but can’t seem to leave the home he loved,
but despite that and the fact that one is a spirit, one can definitely feel
their growing affection for each other. England
One of my other go-to movies is Silverado. Kevin Costner and Kevin Kline in the same movie…oh, be still my heart. As much as I love a good romance or the other genres, as previously mentioned, I love a good western, too, and this movie certainly fits the bill. It’s got everything I look for in a western, but most importantly, the good guys come out on top.
If you have a chance to see either one, I highly recommend them.
What are some of your favorite movies? Anything you’d like to recommend?
Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.
