I can’t believe I ran out of home movies to watch. We have almost a hundred dvd’s at home and I’ve watch all of them already. Well, kinda. I still have Hubby’s adult film collection waiting. Nah… I haven’t got the appetite for a bunch of raunchy genres, LOL!
Anyways, out of despiration, I searched the house for cd’s and dvd’s that I might not have seen yet. My search led me to my father’s stuff. I haven’t really seen all his collection before. Somehow, he didn’t strike me as someone who loved movies and music. I knew him to be a newspaper and magazine guy. I was impressed by his cd’s: Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Bee Gees, Diana Ross, Celine Dion, Jazz Collection, Micheal Jackson. Heck! he even has Paula Abdul! I promise, one of these days, Im going to listen to them.
Since I was really bent on watching, I looked harder. Viola! I found two old vcd’s. This, I thought was probably Dad’s favorite. Imagine, two versions of the SAME film. In case you’re wondering, here they are:
I saw the remake some few years back , but didn’t realize that the 1957 classic was even better. I loved everything about the classic, including Cary Grant and Debrorah Kerr’s fashion style. I didn’t know how good looking he was. Hmm… I think I see traces of the 50’s influences in the runways lately.
I spent one of the most entertaining afternoon watching these movies. It was a refreshing surprise for me. Trust good, old dad to be quite a life saver.
