I've Got To Run Faster... I've been tagged again!

Hello, everyone. Mizbubs here. I let my guard down, and Bubs caught me again! Samurai Frog hit Bubs with this. He also asked that any of the tagged please link back to the original post on Blog Cabins. So, here goes:

A- Animal Crackers - a New Years Eve must!

B - Blow Up - I first saw this on TV as a pre-teen. I was fascinated.

C - Citizen Kane

D - Double Indemnity - My Three Sons' dad was an actor?

E - Enter the Dragon

F - Face/Off - You've got to love the doves...

G - Grand Hotel

H - Help - more than a movie, it's a philosophy.

I - In the Heat of the Night

J - Journey to the Center of the Earth - I had a crush on James Mason for a while.

K - Kill Bill:Volume 1

L - Lord Love a Duck - Has anyone else ever seen this?

M - The Man with the Golden Arm - I'm strictly a pre-Rat Pack girl.

N - Notorious - don't drink glowing milk!

O - On the Waterfront

P - The Public Enemy - James Cagney was another early love...

Q - The Quiet Man - Can I be Maureen O'Hara when I grow up?

R - Rebecca - turns out I was actually thinking of "Laura" with Gene Tierney and Dana Andrews. Oh well.

S - The Shop Around the Corner

T - The Thin Man - My eldest daughter is named Nora. Need I say more?

U - An Unmarried Woman

V - Village of the Damned

W - Wait Until Dark - pretty scary for a movie with no blood!

X - X-Men

Y - Young at Heart

Z - Zulu - One of those movies you watched on Sunday afternoon when nothing else was on.

So, there you have a glimpse into my celluloid influences. (OK, some movies just start with the right letter.) Thanks for reading!

Yes, I've seen Lord Love a Duck -- Tuesday Weld! The days of Charlotte Rampling and Julie Christie and Dirk Bogarde. Coolie . . .

Reminds me to watch An Unmarried Woman again, too.

I remember Lord Love a Duck. Roddy McDowell and Tuesday Weld, right?

I saw Lord Love A Duck several years ago at the Gene Siskel Film Center.

It was definitely an odd film. Molly Ringwald's Grandpa Fred (Max Showalter) from Sixteen Candles has a really wacky scene with Tuesday Weld (I think he plays her father).

That is a great list you have there. It is just choc full of some of my favorites, and the fact that you named your girl after Nora Charles is too cool!

I, too, have seen Lord Love A Duck. I could've sworn another blogger recommended it. Tuesday Weld. Hubba hubba!

Wow, "The Thin Man," "In The Heat of The Night "and "Zulu," now you're talking good 70's TV!

Wow, you went two for two! You've got mega-stamina, man!

I used to love staying up late in the summers and watch all those old Cagney movies-- The Public Enemy, White Heat, etc. Warner realeased a set a couple of years ago called "The Gangsters Set," which has those two, Petrified Forest, LIttle Caesar and a couple of others.

I put Village of the Damned on my list too. The movie gave me lots of nightmares when I was a kid.
