    The Golden Age of Porn will always be the best. Today´s porn could be done by high school students.

    All right, then…

    Tell us what you think is a ‘classic film,’ and perhaps I’ll join the discussion.

    Or not if your idea of ‘classic’ is Titanic…

    OK I thought you meant film classics and when it turned to porn I was turned off. (Don't get me wrong I enjoy porn) But on the subject I think part of the reason these people seemed more special is due to the time. There was no internet and paparazzi capturing their every move and mistake. To me they seemed more elegant and refined because the world of Hollywood then was the image that the studios wished to project to the public. In my opinion the golden era for Hollywood ended in the early sixties. There have been wonderful films and exciting people who have made movies since; however the stars of Hollywood during the golden age seem to shine brighter to me.

    I haven't watched alot of class films but last night, i watched The Bad and the Beautiful. it was pretty good even though, i didn't like the ending. It was my first time seeing a Lana Turner film. She was a decent actress, even though back then, it looks as if everyone acted a little more stiff/hammy than i'm used to. Kirk Douglas was also in it and i couldn't help but think how much Michael looks like him.

    I love old movies! All the good stories have already been told. The remakes are lame in comparison to the originals.

    Here in Dallas, the Lakewood Theater used to do 25cent movies on the 2nd or 3rd Tuesday several years ago. It's a 1938 theater and they charged 1938 prices that one night. Lots of Audrey Hepburn movies. Lots of Paramount films in general for some reason. It's a Wonderful Life every November. White Christmas with Bing Crosby every December. One Easter they did Easter Parade with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire. The next Easter they did The Ten Commandments! First time I ever saw it on the big screen!! Best part was it was filmed in Cinemascope and the Lakewood has the biggest Cinemascope screen in Texas so I saw it as it was meant to be seen. OMG!!!!!! What great photography. Would like to see GWTW on the big screen some day for the same reason. And Doctor Zhivago.

    Few things are more romantic than watching an old movie together. I love the scene in Making Love where they are watching An Affair to Remember and they knew all the lines and said them along with the actors. I can do that on most of The Trouble with Angels and The Importance of Being Earnest.

    I agree with you all. Films back then and stars had class and real talent. The 60's and 70's are my all time favorite decades. They feel so good. Classics are magical.

    I've always been a classic horror movie fan, from Nosferatu to Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Night of the Living Dead... no matter how cheesy and melodramatic some of the acting may have been, it's just fun as hell to watch.

    That and 70's era NYC cop movies; the graininess of the picture, coupled with the funked-up music and shapes of the cars and outdated fashion, the film editing and such, I just really enjoy that period of time and how they chose to portray the stories.

    I've thought about this some more and in the true height of Hollywood's hay day there was no such thing as television and people went to the movies. I grew up watching MGM musicals. There was a bitter sweet moment for me as a child the first time I went on the back lot and realized that none of it was real. But the memories of those movies and stars live on...

    I liked A Streetcar Named Desire. I bet beyotches had to get smelling salts after watching Marlon Brando take off his sweaty T-shirt onscreen.

    The Incident was a great film. Tony Musante. Martin Sheen. Ruby Dee was in that one.

    Really good shit! But The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is not really on the same level of depravity as Night of the Living Dead or Nosferatu. It is truly one of the first movies that is absolutely disgusting from frame one to the next. I Spit On Your Grave even seemed tame in comparison, it is truly the most terrifying movie that has ever been made.

    And let me give a shout out to Akira Kurosawa's films. I'm also a big Sergio Leone fan too!

    Oh and any kind of noir is really the shit, there seemed to be TONS of it made in the 40's and 50's!

    Lee Patrick as Effie Perrine, Sam Spade's secretary, looks at statue: "What's that?"
    Humphrey Bogart, as Sam Spade, holding statue: "The stuff that dreams are made of."
