One of my absolute favorite ways to spend a weekend afternoon is snuggling up on the couch to watch great oldies movies. Turner Classic Movies is always available on cable or satellite. Netflix has a great selection, too. I know everyone is into the computer-enhanced special effects, super action films, fantasy, or blood and gore, but take a step back into the past when there were real people in movies and not animated images. Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world where people used their manners, dressed nicely, and where men swept women off their feet? Yes, just a dream world, I know, but for one afternoon, it’s nice to imagine. This list of great oldies movies is my own personal list of favorites, so let me hear your list.
1. Wuthering Heights, 1939

I’m making this number on in my list of great oldies movies for a reason. It’s my number one all time favorite. Lawrence Olivier and Merle Oberon are wonderful in their parts as Heathcliff and Cathy, and oh how I cried. He loves her with all his being, and she is who she is, and oh my goodness, you feel his pain.
