Child #2 and I watched “Going My Way” tonight. It’s an old black and white movie from the 1940’s starring Bing Crosby. That child had not seen it yet! Now, we watch “Holiday Inn” at least once a year as well as the old “Miracle on 34th Street,” but “Going My Way was a new one for her. I sometimes feel the need to break out “It’s a Wonderful Life” or “The Bells of St. Mary’s!” Just the other day, I had children #’s 2, 3, & 4 watching “Christmas in Connecticut.” Some don’t like the black and white movie format, but I think you get over that once you are immersed in the story itself.
There is some great music to be heard in these old movies too, as well as lessons to be learned. There is nothing like “Too-Ra Loo-Ra Loo-Ral” or “White Christmas” sung by Bing Crosby. No one can compare to his honeyed tones!
So, do you like old movies that were from way before your time, like I do? Do you prefer new movies? I like both, so my feelings won’t be hurt! (Just don’t say anything mean about Bing!!!) Leave your answer in the comment section below and have a great Saturday movie night!
