Sepia Saturday

Sepia Saturday 316 Header

This week the Sepia Saturday prompt inspires bloggers to find and share photos about filmmakers. I love film and as my New Year’s Resolution is to watch one old film a week, I’ve discovered several favourites.

I’ve discovered that I love films by Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin. I especially like the Criterion Collection’s DVD’s with all the extra interviews and background information. Do you have any favourite classic films?

    Unfortunately, I have never liked slap-stick comedy. I don’t know why? I know a lot of people love the oldies – The Three Stooges & etc. I just never did cotton to them. Oh well. My loss.

    • I can’t stand the Three Stooges. At all. I think it’s because Chaplin’s films have a message and meaning and can be thoughtfully touching like when the blind girl believes the tramp is a millionaire in City Lights, that I’m won over.

  2. What a great resolution! I cannot remember the last time that I just sat and watched a movie! I always have my laptop on my knee so am not really paying attention when my husband is watching a movie!

  3. Harold Lloyd is my all time favorite and I still enjoy watching his films. Years ago I bought several sets VCR tapes of Chaplin and Lloyd movies to entertain my son when he was very young. He’s now 27 and I know they helped him develop a better sense of humor and social culture. Much better than the contemporary junk on commercial television.
