Look at what Aurora at Once Upon A Screen gave us!
If you’re not following Aurora’s fabulous blog, click here to join the fun!
To accept this award, we have to list 11 random facts about ourselves and answer the 11 questions Aurora posed.
1. Why do you blog?
We have opinions about every single movie we watch. Our beleaguered family and friends have heard it all, and they kindly suggested we blog about our opinions instead of sharing them during key moments in the film.
2. What was your “best” film-going experience?
We saw Sunset Boulevard on the big screen and it was as though we’d never seen the movie before. Another memorable experience was screening It’s a Wonderful Life in a packed theatre. Everyone in the audience sobbed during the final scene.
3. What classic film would you absolutely love to watch on the big screen and why?
We would love to see The Oxbow Incident on the big screen. We suspect it would be a life-changing experience.
4. You’re having a dinner party and your list of guests include five classic film personalities/stars/directors – who’s on your list?
Our list changes all the time, but today it would include Thelma Ritter, David Niven, Charlie Chaplin, Bette Davis and William Wyler.
5. What is your ideal day off?
An ideal day off would include a trip to the spa, shopping for unique chocolate and a large beef dinner:
6. You can have a half-hour conversation with any fictional character. Who do you choose? Why?
Linus from the Peanuts cartoon strip, because he’s quirky and he’s got that crazy hair.
7. Your favorite movie monster is?
The Creature from the Black Lagoon. What’s not to love?
8. If you could choose to live in a house/apartment featured in a film or television show, which would it be?
The post-renovation home in George Washington Slept Here.
9. Name one thing you would have on your bucket list.
We would love to attend the TCM Film Festival. So far, the timing and/or finances haven’t been in our favour.
Bewitched. We love Agnes Moorehead and her wild blue eye shadow.
11. Favorite film decade and why?
The 1940s. There were some thought-provoking films from this decade, as well as some of the best film noir ever produced.
