Classic Movie Weekend
After the baseball game on Saturday (and yup, I got a sunburn on the areas I missed with the sunblock), I decided to go rent some classic movies. Since my daughter was going camping with her dad, I had the evening to myself. What better time than to relax and watch a few good movies?
The first movie I watched was a Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman film called Notorious. This is also an Alfred Hitchcock film.
Set just after World War II, Alicia's father has just been convicted of treason to the United States. Because of her German background and her father's contacts, Devlin (Grant), a U.S. agent, recruits Alicia to spy for the U.S. on some shady friends of her father's down in South America. But how far will she go to help her country? This is a great flick - the acting is superb, the plot wonderful.
I also rented The Maltese Falcon. Yes, I've never watched this before. But I took care of it yesterday! A great mystery flick featuring Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade, the ruthless detective. A must see!
On tap tonight is another Cary Grant film, Arsenic and Old Lace. It's directed by Frank Capra (of It's a Wonderful Life fame) so I'm sure it will be a great flick.
What's the last movie you saw?
