I spent last weekend catching up on and enjoying my favorite television programs and entertaining movies. I stayed up almost all night. I retired when nothing else was on that interested me.
Then, there was a night in which I had various sets of great programs lined up for me to watch yet I was too tired to view them all. I tried my best, however, sleep creeped upon me and I had to go to bed.
Last night, I was at it again, starting off my weekend ready for more television.
After watching an action packed crime show, and a old 1980’s two episode comedy show, I viewed the old classic Alfred Hitchcock flick Dial M For Murder. I had actually never seen that movie even though I have been aware of it for years through advertisements. It was such a great film, but most of Hitchcock’s presentations are anyway.
I slept good last night except for having to get up to pee from time to time.
Outside my window I could hear the decent partying going on from neighbors in celebration of Memorial Day the festivity continued on throughout the wee hours the music, singing, and the excited crowd and outpour of laughter and talk wasn’t a disturbance to me at all.
I enjoyed hearing the near distant gaiety. I live in a nice and quiet multicultural community and when they party it is delightful.
Before I went to sleep last night I tuned in to watch my film noirs. Alfred Hitchcock’s “Strangers On A Train” came on and for the first time I’ve got to watch it in its entirety.
Whenever it came on before I’d only see a few minutes of the beginning or didn’t get to see it at all because of other distractions, preoccupations, or just not having the time, but the film was phenomenal and entertaining I was too tired to look at the other noirs airing afterward so I went on to bed.
I’m enjoying the serenity of my home right now at the moment, I’ll cook me some food, relax a little bit, then head off to another day of work.
I just love those old black and white movies from the 1940’s on up there are so many and too many to mention but just to name a very small few such as Mildred Pierce and Straight-Jacket with Joan Crawford.
Dark Passage, In A Lonely place, and They Drive By Night with Humphrey Bogart.
Framed, The Big Heat and Gilda with Glen Ford.
Sorry Wrong Number with Barbara Stanwyck.
The movies and stars are countless as the list goes on and on I’ve been watching these flicks since I was a teen and am loving the ones that I didn’t get a chance to see back then now as every week I get to view those suspenseful noir.
A lot of these classics hold up today and are not corny many were ahead of their time, especially Alfred Hitchcock and his old entertaining series, along with One Step Beyond and Rod Sterling’s The Twilight Zone.
I also loved the private detective and cop series 77 Sunset Strip and Decoy. Whether these old classics were films or television shows from the past either in black and white or in color they are phenomenal to watch and enjoy still!
