I was sitting on my recliner the other day looking at videos on YouTube of some of my favorite classic stars, when it struck me that I haven't seen many films of the stars I consider 'favorites.' As I thought about it more, two of the video clips ['Shimmy Like My Sister Kate" and "Too Darn Hot"] I look at often are from films I have never seen!
I decided to make a list of stars who's films I would like to become more accustom. That is what this post is all about. The star's, the films I have seen, and the films I want to see most.
I also added a few stars who's films I have never seen. These are stars I see in post around the blog-o-sphere and run across their films at the stores often. Stars that others have created blogs/websites dedicated to, but I have yet to enjoy myself.
These are the stars that are at the top of my list of filmographies to explore...
I've seen On The Town & Easter Parade
I would like to see Kiss Me Kate
Everytime Ann comes on the screen, tap dancing with a smile that goes from cheek to cheek, I can't help but want to see more. The way she effortlessly moves and the way she looks into the camera really makes you feel like she is looking right at you, wanting you to have just as much fun as she is having on screen.
I've seen The Band Wagon & East Side, West Side
I would like to see Silk Stockings, Party Girl, & Brigadoon
This is another star who captivates me with their dancing whenever I seen them on screen. The 'Girl Hunt' number in The Band Wagon is in my top three classic film scenes of all time. The way she dances is just elegant. I have watched some of her other dance scenes on the internet and I am definitely want to see more.
I've Seen How To Marry A Millionaire
I would like to see Pin-Up Girl & How To Be Very Very Popular
The scene from Wabash Ave where Grable sings 'Shimmy Like My Sister Kate' is another of my favorite videos to watch over and over, but I have never seen that film. Betty Grable was known for having the best gams in the business and from what I have heard a beautiful voice... what more could you ask for?
I've seen East Side, West Side
I would like to see The Killers & Mogambo
I've seen Wife vs Secretary, The Philadelphia Story, & Ziegfeld Girl
I would like to see Rear Window & Vertigo
I've seen How To Marry A Millionaire
I would like to see To Have And Have Not & Key Largo
I've seen Three On A Match & The Public Enemy
I would like to see Blonde Crazy & Night Nurse
FYI... just realized she was in Grease.
I've seen Imitation of Life
I would like to see West Side Story
The next two are stars who's films I have never seen, but I definitely want to...
I would like to see Giant, Rebel Without A Cause, & East of Eden
I would like to see To Be or Not To Be & My Man Godfrey
I look forward to learning more about this funny lady in the upcoming Carole-tennial blogathon!
If there are any big fans of these stars that would like to leave suggestions on films to check out... please leave me a comment!
