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 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!
