Ask Maddy Anything Classic Film Related

Hello everyone. I’ve thought of something that I think will be quite fun.  I’ve decided to write a post where I respond to your classic film questions.

Ever wondered what I think about a certain classic? Wondering what my favourite films are in different genres? Are you a classic film newbie who is looking for recommendations of classic era films, directors and actors?

Whatever the classic film question is, you go right ahead and ask me!

I will put together another post answering all your questions. I thought this would be a fun way for you all to get to know a bit more about my classic film tastes and opinions. 

Looking forward to reading those questions.

    Are there movies you like/love/champion that get a bad rap from others. I blogged that I really liked “The Pride And The Passion”, for example, which always gets slammed. Or vice-versa–movies that are considered fabulous that leave you snoring? I’d rather be attacked by wart hogs than sit through “Jules and Jim”. How about you? Be brave, fess up, think of England…
    Cheers, Mark (currently house-sitting 2 cats and 1,500 movies in beautiful Port Angeles, Washington)

      🙂 Oh this one will be fun to answer. Thanks.

      Funny you should mention Jules and Jim, while I don’t hate that one I have never got the fuss around it. I don’t feel enough time was taken developing the characters so we really connect with them and share their joys and sorrows.

      Enjoy looking after the cats.

    Hi Maddy. British cinema of the 1930’s often gets dismissed by historians as being good Hitchcock films, a couple of prestige Alexander Korda productions , and the rest as “quota quickie” rubbish.What is your opinion of Britsh films of that decade, and what, if any, would you recommend to others?

    This is such a wonderful idea! Thank you so much for taking the time to answer some questions and interact with newbies like me! 🙂
    What are your favourite classic film star biographies and autobiographies? I’m reading The Moon’s A Balloon by David Niven, and it’s simply amazing.
    And, what are your favourite film noirs?

    What ‘classic’ films haven’t you watched?

    Which actors of the twenty-first century do you think will revered the most highly and achieve classic status?
