When Martha moves into a retirement community she does not really want to join or take part in any of the current group set ups, so she decides to form a cheerleading squad given that was something she was good at back in her High School days.
This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!
Becky is a hard-working morning TV show producer who focuses fully on this and has made it her life, when she is fired from a job in New Jersey. She pretty much begs Jerry for a chance for a job on Daybreak which is in New York. Taking a chance on her she must strive even further than before.
Sisters Bessie and Lee had a big falling out twenty years earlier when Bessie cares for their father after he had a stroke. She has been diagnosed with cancer and must contact her sister to get tested along with the nephews she has never met.
George Banks was very excited about his daughter Annie returning home from studying in Europe. When she announces she fell in love in Rome, got engaged and now getting married to Brian MacKenzie his melt down begins!
The ageing Don Michael Corleone attempts to make his business dealings more legal in New York City and across to Italy in the 1979, while also trying to control his enthusiastic nephew Vincent Mancini.
I am getting increasingly sad about how big the number is getting. 32 today!!!!!!!!
So for my birthday post today I decided to take a look at who managed to win an Oscar at the age of 32!
Helen Hayes (The Sin of Madelyn Claudet)
Jane Wyman (Johnny Belinda)
Diane Keaton (Annie Hall)
James Stewart (The Philadelphia Story)
Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot)
Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas)
Van Heflin (Johnny Eager)
Norman Taurog (Skippy)
Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
Something I found rather interesting when it came to putting this post together was that the majority of Oscar winners were a lot older particularly when it came to the male categories. Also in terms of the films above I have actually only watched one of them and it has to be one of my all time favourites*! Maybe I should make it a task to find and watch the rest of them over the next year.
