  1. I know more of the faces than the names.

  2. I actually recognized every name/face, but I only saw the movies Tom Jones and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

    I'm a fan of Cat.

  3. @A. -That's a start. But you have more books than I do. :)

    @Stephanie - really? Even John Carradine? That's pretty cool since all these were before you were born. (I am an old music collector and I like to watch old movies, too.

  4. I knew John Carradine's name, not face. And I forgot I've seen Dr. Zhivago, too.

    I love many old movies and older books. I had a serious thing for Nelson Eddy for a while, not because of his acting but because of his wonderful voice and the charm I could see spurts of. I used to watch AMC all the time and I grew up on old movies. I guess those were the only ones clean enough for my Mormon household.

    I've converted my much younger husband into a Cary Grant fan and have introduced him to a wealth of "older" flicks. He won't watch B&W (never understood the big deal), but he's open to most anything else.

    I will always love Alan Arkin if only for his role in The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming. Damn, I may have to watch that again.
