The Liebster Award

Stephen Reginald (@  Classic Movie Man ) nominated me for the Liebster Award.  This is the first time I've ever heard of this, but I feel honored that he thought of me!

So the rules are that I must answer 11 questions that my nominator composed to me, tell 11 things about myself that readers don't know,  nominate other bloggers and pose 11 questions to them.  So here we go!!!

1. Screwball Comedy, Film Noir, Musical or Western?
      Tough to answer. I love them all. But if I must choose then....Screwball Comedy.

2. Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe or Lana Turner?
        Got to go with Jean Harlow.

3. What film do you think is the most overrated of all time?
      Hmm...this is difficult to answer. If I had to choose, I guess I would pick "Slumdog Millionaire."

4. Who is your favorite film star and why?
          If I had to choose just one then it would be Spencer Tracy. He has captivated me since I was a young kid. He had a strong screen presence. He came across as such a natural.  He was versatile. And in his performance in "The Old Man and the Sea" he showed just how captivating he can be with only himself.

5. Do you have a favorite movie line? If so, what is it and what movie is it from?
           My favorite line comes from "How Green Was My Valley." The quote in the movie is part of the narration that originally came from the book the movie is based on. The narrator says "Men like my father cannot die. They are with me still, real in memory as they were in flesh. Loving and beloved forever. How green was my valley then."

6. Cheesecake, apple pie or hot fudge sundae?
       Ack! The most difficult question to answer! Chocolate Mousse cheesecake.

7. What movie star’s work do you think should get more attention?
          I wish today's generation would learn of Myrna Loy and watch her work.

8. What was the first film you remember seeing in a movie theater?
         I think it was My Little Pony. LOL

9. How old were you when you realized you loved movies?
       I think I was 9 years old when I realized movies were more than just simple means of entertainment to me.

10. What is the best novel-to-screen adaptation, in your opinion?
           "To Kill a Mockingbird" hands down.

11. Is there a movie you haven’t seen that would surprise us?
           "Camille."  I want to see it, but something always seems to prevent it.
