Cool Off With The Classics

Cool off with the Classics . . . a blogathon consisting of a top 10 list of some classic black and white films. It didn’t really take very long for a few of the films to come straight to my mind for this list. I am not going to put them in any particular order, but 10 films are included.

Marc from Go, See, Talk has done it again with another fantastic blogathon and you can see the original post linked to everyone else’s posts here.

While some films came straight to my mind, I actually found it quite difficult to get to ten films without ending up with mainly Mae West and Marx Brothers films in the list. This has made me realise that I have a lot of films that I must watch!

After making the list I got to thinking about how all of the films I have chosen have so many quotes that are still repeated and loved today. Is that due to the black and white look of the films or just how times have changed? Also performance wise just seems to be so much better than a lot of the current day films.

News: Ritchie ‘Working On Guys And Dolls’

I think this is really interesting !!!

Guy Ritchie is set to branch out from the world of gangster cinema – the filmmaker is reportedly in Hollywood to begin writing a script for a remake of Guys And Dolls.

The director, best known for his London-based crime films, is said to have roped in movie hardman Jason Statham to show off his vocal talents in a reworking of the classic musical, which originally starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.

A source tells British newspaper The Sun, “Guy has been on the case with the idea of making a musical recently. He had been throwing ideas around with Jason Statham about writing their own musical.

“Guy has had a lot of meetings with top studio bosses about other projects but the Guys And Dolls idea really tickled him.”

But Ritchie could be sticking to a familiar formula when shooting begins – he is apparently considering basing the song-and-dance classic in his native Britain.

The insider adds: “He is torn between keeping the script true to the original in New York and taking it to familiar surroundings in London.”

News: Newman’s Secret Sex Life The Subject Of Scandalous New Expose

I think its terrible that people will write stuff like this or mention, how can anyone ever know the truth when the people in question are no longer alive??? Its so disrespectful !!!

Paul Newman has been ‘outed’ from beyond the grave by Marlon Brando, according to writer Darwin Porter’s scandalous new book on the late movie legend.

Porter interviewed Brando about Newman before the acting great died in 2004 – and he was stunned with what the heavyweight star let slip.

In his book, Paul Newman: The Man Behind The Baby Blues, he quotes Brando as saying, “He never fooled me. Paul Newman had just as many on-location affairs as the rest of us, and he was just as bisexual as I was. But, where I was always getting caught with my pants down, he managed to do it in the dark.”

Porter tells America’s the Globe he has been tracking Newman’s secret sexual encounters since he met the actor in 1959 and alleges in his new book the late star, who was happily married to actress Joanne Woodward for 50 years, bedded icons like Grace Kelly, Judy Garland, Natalie Wood and Marilyn Monroe.

The writer also claims Newman and James Dean had a gay romance.

But the actor’s family has dismissed Porter’s book, claiming the sex allegations are “disgusting”.

A source says, “Paul knew there were rumours out there about his sexuality and to have to face them when he’s not here to dispute them is Joanne’s worst nightmare.”
