That’s probably enough to be getting on with. Only four of these were made AFTER I was born. Can you guess which ones?

Any on here that you love too? Let me know.

  1. I am actually giddy here…..no one I have ever met outside of my family has EVER heard of The Amazing Mr. Blunden! I love that movie. Also, the Alastair Sim version was THE best one made! You don’t know how many people I know do not even know there is a difference in stories! Makes me angry every holiday season…lol. Bedknobs and Broomsticks will always be a classic–watching her bloomers walk out the door is hilarious. I have the soundtrack on my spotify list.

    1. EXCELLENT! I am glad my quirky taste in films has resonated with you. We need to resurrect these old movies so they don’t get forgotten πŸ™‚ They are apparently going to remake Bedknobs and Broomstick, but they won’t be able to beat the original!

  2. Haven’t watched any of them. But would add to my ‘To be watched’ list.

    Well for starters Paddington is definitely after u were born πŸ™ˆ and I would take a wild guess, Death on the Nile, there’s something about Mary and The slipper and the rose.

  3. 3 right. The Slipper and the Rose came out the year before I was born. The other film was The Princess Bride πŸ™‚ If you watch Gone with the Wind (which is my absolute favourite) you have to have a break half way through because it goes on a bit. They often show it on the telly on two consecutive nights πŸ™‚
