Movies on the Big Screen

My new 40" flatscreen has made movie watching at home better than ever.  Saturday morning I woke up just in time to catch "The Letter" one of Bette Davis' best.  Watching other oscar winning films in the last month on TCM made me think about some of my favorites, oscar winners and not.

     The Razor's Edge                    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty     Invasion of the Body Snatchers
     Rebecca                                 Arsenic & Old Lace                     Bye, Bye Birdie
     The Big Clock                         Now, Voyager                             The Big Chill
     The Uninvited                          Casablanca                                 Manhattan Murder Mystery
     A Letter to Three Wives           Random Harvest                          Baby Boom
     Leave Her to Heaven               The Haunting                               Double Indemnity
     The Wizard of Oz                    Vertigo                                       Flower Drum Song

My list skews heavy in 30's & 40's, some noir of course, later 20th century comedies and dramas, a little fantasy - old and modern, lots of suspense (Alfred H was the man),  and a couple of musicals thrown in to lighten things up.  Any one of these movies is worth seeing again and again, and I have.  Add the perfect snack and life is very good. 

Truffle Oil Popcorn
1 package natural microwave popcorn
1 Tbsp. white truffle oil

Pop the corn.  Pour in a bowl.  Drizzle with truffle oil.  Try not to make a 2nd bag - unless it's a double feature.

What are some of your favorite movies and movie snacks?

  1. I like Money Pit, Gone With the Wind, Dr. Suess The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Princess Bride and Back to the Future. As for snacking popcorn, mm's and licorice are some of my favorites.
