THE UGLY DACHSHUND

To me it's a classic movie from the 60's. I watched it many years back and I am wondering if anyone else has? Do you have a classic movie that you recommend?

Oh IHave, I truly hope people see the movie you reference as a classic and not a bitch slap.

But it is a neat topic.  I think a great classic is Auntie Mame with Rosland Russell.  The one with Lucille Ball and Bea Arthur can go the same path as Norbit.

A Streetcar Named Desire

so many memorable lines

e.g.

Straight? What's 'straight'? A line can be straight, or a street. But the heart of a human being?

My name means white in French. The last name means woods. So together my name is white woods. You can remember it that way, if you care to

Try these:

Dead Ringer (1964) - Bette Davis plays a dual role as middle-aged twin sisters.  One kills the other, and takes her place, only to find that she's landed in an even bigger mess.  Oh what a tangled web we weave....

Suddenly Last Summer (1959) - Katherine Hepburn is a wealthy New Orleans matriarch, living in denial about the nature of her relationship with her only son and the events leading up to his death.  Little by little, "the horrible, the inescapable truth" all comes out.

The Snake Pit (1948) - Olivia de Havilland is a mental patient trying to make sense out of life in a state insane asylum.
   Doctor:    “How often does your husband come to visit you?”
   OdH:       “As often as the rules allow”.
   Doctor:    "And how often is that?
   OdH:       “Why?  Don’t you know?”
   Doctor:    “I know... I’m trying to find out if you know.”
   OdH:       “I don’t see what difference it makes... would you change the rules?”

Chinatown.

I'll never turn down a chance to watch it.  One time I was at the bath house and the movie came on.  I spent the next 2 hours in the lounge watching it, probably for about the 10th time.  Glory holes be damned. I can just never get enough of Chinatown.

Oh yeah, that was like an intrigue movie if I'm remembering correctly. Liz Taylor was in it too. Pretty good from what I remember. Kind of strange though!

I Want To Live!   1958, Susan Hayward

Based (to some extent) on the real-life story of Barbara Graham...executed in 1955 in San Quentin's gas chamber though she maintained her innocence throughout.

THE GRAPES OF WRATH with Henry Fonda

HUSH, HUSH SWEET CHARLETTE
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE
Betty Davis just facinates me when she portrays off the wall characters. Her expressive eyes are working overtime in those two movies.

I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED YOU, dr. Frank Borzage (changed my life)

well, although it was made in the old days, its far from being "classical" in that it does not follow the conventional "classic" way of telling a story which is what "classical movie" this or that really means.

Wow. I could make a list, but off the top my short list would be:
WC Fields "Its A Gift"
And I can't leave out "Rebecca"
And a very hard to find one, that I bought off ebay "I've Lived Before"
And I have been looking for years for one called "Violent Road" with Brian Keith 1958
And "The Goldbergs" with Gertrude Berg 1950
Oh, "The Bad Seed", cant forget that

And I found a cute holiday movie "The Great Rupert" with Jimmy Durante 1950

Have a few favorites...
Camp: 
Queen of Outer Space, with Zsa Zsa Gabor..." I hate her, I hate that queen"

Plan 9 from Outer Space...Love the fact that Bella Lugosi died during the filming, and a substitution took his place...also Vampira...what a scream!!!  see it colorized!!!

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?  Davis and Crawford duel..."But cha are Blanche..."

Best:
Citizen Kane...powerful film loosely based on the Hearst empire

Fantasia...the original...great concept for its time...I cry every time when Night on Bald Mountain merges with the Ave Maria...

All About Eve...what can I say..." Eve evil "

So many others...any Fellini film...and on, and on and on...


The strongest warrior, is the one who conquers himself....Aztec warrior

Dripping water hollows out a stone...Ovid
