I really wanted to buy this book, but in an effort to be a little more conscious of the space on my groaning shelves I decided to check it out from the library instead. Now I *really* want to buy this book! I was raised on classic films - Limelight, Bringing Up Baby, North by Northwest, etc. I have a deep fondness for films from the golden age of Hollywood. Up to this point I've done a fair job of sharing some classics with the kid - we've dabbled in Hitchcock (The Birds) and she's seen (and adores) Sound of Music, but this book really reminded how many greats I've been overlooking and how ready she is to watch some stuff I hadn't even considered. I am hereby instituting a weekly classic family movie night!
