So, today is National Classic Movie Day. Happy National Classic Movie Day! 😀 Anyway, I thought I’d do a little something to celebrate. Last year, I did a list of 23 classic movie moments that I love, so this year, I’m going to do something a bit different. Basically, we classic movie buffs all wish we could invent a time machine and go back in time, just for a little while, to that glorious era. So, I’ve decided to tell you what my perfect day in Old Hollywood would be like. Mind you, I change my mind a lot. This is just something I thought of and it doesn’t have to remain that way. Anyway here we go! So, I was talking to my friend Denise a few months ago about this and we both agreed that we’d want to be best friends with Barbara Stanwyck and that the three of us would drive around and talk about everything and then she’d introduce us to everyone, because she’s a sweetheart. Ok, I don’t know about you, but the first thing I’d do would be to try and find Katharine Hepburn. I’d like to think I could keep my composure, but probably not. Deni would have to let her know that I’m not some crazy stalker. So anyway, once we’d met, we’d sit by the pool and talk about life. I’d like to think she would have liked me. And then provided we’d agree to meet again later that evening for dinner, Deni and I would go off again. Then, we’d have lunch with the Marx Brothers. Duck soup, probably HA! Anyway… then in the afternoon, we would try and sneak into the various studios to watch the shooting of our favorite movies. Later on, dinner with Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Billy Wilder, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and Bette Davis. Imagine that! And then, we’d all go to Ciro’s, the most famous club in Hollywood history. I don’t know about you, but I’d go look for Eve Arden, Irene Dunne and Rosalind Russell (who are hopefully all at the same table) and ask to join them. I’d love to just sit with them and laugh for an hour straight. And then, Deni and I both said that, at this point, we’d try and ask Glenn Ford out on a date. She also mentioned Gregory Peck and I mentioned Sterling Hayden. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do. And then, after that, we’d go to one of George Cukor’s legendary parties. Oh yes. Oh yes indeed.
*sigh* Taxi to Old Hollywood, please!
