I just love Down with Love with Rock Hudson and Doris day, just love everything about it, I even love the remake with Ewan Mcgregor and Rene Zellweger, adore the set and of course the wardrobe which is to die for! If I could be in any movie it would be this one!
I am a real lover of old movies and the question really got me reminiscing I love ingrid Bergman, grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn movies. They all shared such style and grace.
Casablanca is everyone ones favourite so for me it was a toss up between dial m for murder or notorious. Notorious won. Bergmans character twists and turns and her sizzling relationship with the fab Cary grant was fantastic. I really love old movies and now I want to watch this again. Where to look x

My favourite old film is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” … Audrey Hepburn is so wonderfully endearing and kooky in that film!
‘You Can’t Take It With You’ 1938 – starring one of my favourite, and I believe underrated, actresses Jean Arthur and ever loveable James/’Jimmy’ Stewart. It’s a classic heartfelt, sincere romantic comedy with great acting and an innocent bohemian feel.
My favourite old film is Brief Encounter – it shows passion without having an actual affair
my favourite old movie has to be Its a wonderful life, beautiful heartwarming & tearjerking.
Breakfast at Tiffanys – great film!!

‘A Matter of Life and Death’, is just the best movie of all time. Perfect in every way, who wouldn’t want to be loved by the suave, David Niven?

Breakfast at Tiffanys – life was just so much more glamorous
Breakfast at Tiffanys such a charming film
It’s a Wonderful life
To Kill A Mocking Bird, with Gregory Peck.
Barefoot in the park with Jane Fonda and the gorgeous Robert Redford, very funny film.
I’ll go out on a limb and say ‘Gold Diggers of 1933’
Mary Poppins is my old classic, never fails to entertain the family
Rebel Without a Cause. I only saw it for the first time a few weeks ago. My husband and I had a date night and saw it in a courtyard at a bar in Mayfair, complete with cocktails, posh chips and gourmet popcorn! I loved it, it doesn’t appear at all ‘dated’ and was fantastic watching James Dean strut his stuff!
Anything with Marilyn Monroe – particularly “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”
Three Coins in a Fountain, 1954, Im still a bit of an old softy
Ghost train with arthur askey, I thank you
oh my gosh such a hard question there is way too many. i like breakfast at tiffanys of course and gentlemen prefer blondes but one of my favourites is calamity jane i adore doris day x
It just has to be Gone With The Wind – so romantic in the scenery, the dresses, the old fashioned courtesy etc. etc. etc.
Casablanca I love the mood of the film
Im a big fan of Judy Garland films, my fave is The Wizard of Oz although The Harvey Girls comes a very close second.
Ohlala. I love Gone with the wind, and Dr. Zhivago <3
We watch white christmas every year to get us into the mood whilst putting up the crimbo tree!
It has to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s really….. because of ‘the dress’!! I’d love to win this – one it would suit me perfectly!
My favourite old film is Psycho….a classic !
This is my dream dress – would love to win xx
Mine is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They were both so good looking.
Love the dress
Rear Window, you cant beat a bit of classic Hitchcock for suspense plus it stars the lovely Grace Kelly.
Definitely Gone With the Wind – it’s so nice to have a heroine who is not sappy!
what ever happend to baby jane love this film x
my fav oldie is – the colour red,(no pun intended!)
Definitely Calamity Jane – just like her I am a glamour puss underneath that just needs to be brought out.
Zulu with a very dashing Michael Caine.
got to be thw wizard of oz makes me laugh cry and happy
Guess Who is coming to Dinner is my favourite
Breakfast At Tiffanys, stylish, funny & sad – and it has a cat!
Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Can’t beat Betty Davis and Joan Crawford, TOGETHER!
My fair Lady, classic
My fav has to be Gone with the wind!
Come on, Dover, move yer bloomin’ arse!… got to be My Fair Lady
HELLZAPOPPIN – it is absolutely hillarious and I could watch it over and over again and great music too – brilliant masterpiece
Angels With Dirty Faces or It’s A Wonderful Life – they don’t tell stories like they used to…
It is a definite tie between ‘Rear Window’ (which I love for the fantastically gripping storyline, as well as Grace Kelly’s stunning outfits) and ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?’, which I recommend to everyone for Crawford and Davis’s perfect portrayals of women caught in a relationship based around both hatred and need. Both movies (and casts) have such class!
My favourite old movie is ‘Gentleman Prefer Blondes’ me and my big sister used to watch it over and over again when we were little and pretend we were Marilyn Monroe (me) and Jane Russell (my sister) such a great film, I actually think I based my adult style of dress sense loosely on that film looking at what clothes I choose now 🙂
My favourite old movie is Kind Hearts and Coronets. It’s easily my favourite of the Ealing comedies, and it’s so sly, dark and hilarious that it never fails to amuse me. Love the dress by the way- stunning colour!
Jo Ruth Turner
Gosh, so hard to pick just one. My DVD collection consists of mainly old movies. I love them all. It’s probably a toss up between Kitty Foyle starring Ginger Rogers (sadly no Fred or dancing but a wonderful film) or The Red Shoes – I love the dramatic atmosphere & feel of it. I can happily watch them both over & over. If forced to choose I’d probably pick the latter as it’s so beautifully filmed and I never tire of it. Loving the dress – Ginger Rogers would definitely approve! xx
It has to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s – the glamour, the romance!
My favourite old movie is Casablanca – love this film!
Has to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s 🙂
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my favourite.
I love North by Northwest
One of my favourites but definitely one of the saddest films I have ever seen is Imitation of Life which was made in the 1950’s but it is still a classic and still makes me cry buckets even though I must have seen it thirty times
I love ‘Gone with the Wind’ & ‘Barefoot in the Park’.
One flew over the cuckoo’s nest
gone with the wind
One flew over the cuckoo’s nest for me too!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s

I love ‘Angels with dirty faces’, it makes me cry everytime I watch it
My favourite old movie is ‘Breakfast at tiffanys’ you can’t beat a bit of Audrey Hepburn glamour! 🙂
It’s gotta be singing in the rain
“Whatever happened to baby Jane has to be one of the most iconic movies ever! Two of the best actresses of their time…Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. They just dont make movies like that anymore! !
My favourite is Brief Encounter, but Wizard of Oz is creeping up there now because my 4 year old loves watching it. I’m not really a fan of musicals but seeing it through her eyes is magical!
my favourite is definitely dont eat the daisies with doris day – simply wonderful 🙂
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang has always been my all time favourite movie 🙂
High Society – a classic love story with a little hunour
I love calamity jane, pillow talk and teachers pet. All the doris day movies are classy and humourous!! Can that woman dress or what! love it !
I just love The Third Man-it is so athmosperic and wonderfully shot in black & white-a story of duty, war, inhumanity, greed, oppression, friendship, love wrong-doing. The musical score is really great. The cast are all so wonderfully cast that they make their roles iconic. It is my nostalic pleasure.
I LOVE BUGSY MALONE 😀 an all kid cast too with pie weapons it was brillian i have it on DVD and VIDEO still :). i really like the song “i could of been anything that i wanted to be” it was brilliant, the rest of the songs dances and cast are amazing too.
I just love ‘Gambit’ with Michael Caine and Shirley Maclain; it begins so seriously and then goes horribly wrong and so ends up being hilarious!! love it, love it. love it!
The Wizard of Oz (apart from the flying monkeys – they still scare me!)
I love Calamity Jane, I could watch it every day and not get bored. Loved it since I was a little grl.
Casablanca – has absolutely everything
My favourite has to be ‘Whatever happened to Baby Jane’ with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, fab film!
My favourite old movie has to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s – a timeless classic, with a lot of style.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s –fab classic with style
Rebel Without A Cause, James Dean gorgeous and moody and Natalie Wood with all her style and beauty, watched it so many times and such a rebelious film for its day.
Breakfast At Tiffany’s for me – just a beautiful film and I love the character of Holly Golightly.
I love Calamity Jane, watched it with my nan all the time when I was little
my favorite movie is the sound of music, love that film xx
“Vertigo” (1958), a Hitchcock classic
Some Like It Hot….have watched it hundreds of times
Gone with the Wind
like my roof tiles in this weeks weather….def gone with the wind…. n frankly i do give a dam!!
‘The Big Sleep’ with Humphrey Bogart. I love a good mystery (:
Mine is 1000000 percent The wizard of oz! and im only 19 made way before i was born but i grew up on it my nanny showed me the light! just wish there were films like it still around ”follow the yellow brick road ” 😀
The ghost and Mrs Muir
The Great Escape – Classic Film
My favourite is The Wizard of Oz. I love how Judy Garland can wear plain or girl-next-door outfits and yet turn them into something magical and glamorous just by her attitude! Plus I always lust over those sparkly red shoes 🙂
The runner up would be Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, as Marilyn is just perfect in it!
SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS
My favorite is Funny Face!
I love Seven brides for Seven Brothers
My favourite film is Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn
You can’t beat Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of old school Hollywood glamour.
I think my favourite is Top Hat, for the music, the dancing and the clothes.
The pink panther strikes again – a classic
Absolutely love the dress! My favourite old movie is ‘A matter of life and death’ with David Niven. It’s a really clever story about a wartime pilot who jumps from his plane without a parachute and should die but the ‘conductor’ misses him in thick fog. The story is about how he fights with heaven to be allowed to stay alive. A brilliant story, well told, excellent use of changing between black and white and colour – definitely recommended.
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANYS, AUDREY IS SO GLAMOUROUS.
Tracy K Nixon
I loved Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn in ‘The African Queen’! I have watched it lots and lots!
For me, it has to be Harvey, I adore Jim Stewart and this film has just the best message to it. I only ever watch it when I can give it my full 100% attention, because it makes me feel SO warm-hearted.
My glamour fave would be Most Bogey/Bacall films, such a wonderful couple and a brilliant chemistry. Lauren Bacall steals the limelight from the Marilyn’s and the Audrey’s any day. And she didn’t even want to.
I just love the great escape
whatever happened to baby jane – completely creepy and fabulous
Gone with the Wind
My favourite old movie is Singing in the Rain. I love to sing along, and when it rains i like to do a little dance!
I have 2 favourite old films – Gone With The Wind and Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
Now, Voyager with Bette Davis – “Let’s not ask for the moon, we have the stars” Epic.
‘Value for money’ with Diana Dors and John Gregson. This was filmed in the town I grew up in and I loved seeing it in the 1950’s, plus Diana Dors is a legend.
Would be a tough choice between ” The Ghost and Mrs Muir” and “It’s a Wonderful Life”. As I have to chose one it’s James Stewart” and “It’s a wonderful life”.
has to be anything with cary grant, remember watching to catch a thief or bringing up baby with my grandparents, fond times and happy memories.
stand by me
Mine is The Usual Suspects – classic!
Bus Stop, I love Marilyn Monroe and this is my favourite film as her terrible singing is so funny in it and she looks amazing!

When I was little me and my nanna would watch ‘Carousel’ an old classic musical… I still watch it to this day, It bring back lovely memories of me and Nanna <3
