Welcome to Old Movies Nostalgia, a blog devoted to my love of old movies and a place to connect with other classic movie fans.
My name is Ginny, and I am the author of this blog. Looking back, it’s hard to believe there was once a time when I thought old black and white movies were boring and not worth watching, but there was. I had pretty much vowed to never give them a chance. Fortunately that all changed in a college literature class, thanks to my professor who shared with us his love of classic movies. After watching The Philadelphia Story in that class, my outlook on those “boring” old black and white movies was changed forever.
I not only fell in love with that movie and old movies in general, I became a huge fan of Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn, who remain three of my favorite actors of all time. My love and appreciation for old movies has increased with each passing year, and I have now watched over 500 films from the 1920’s through the 1960’s, a number I hope to grow significantly in the future. Though that may be a very small number compared to film historians and many other classic film lovers, I still feel that I have gained an extensive knowledge of the actors, directors, and film genres from that time period.
One of the reasons I love old movies is that I love seeing things as they were at that time in history. I love everything about that time; the clothes, cars, houses, furniture, music, etc., and watching old movies allows me to get a glimpse into what it might have been like to live in that era. It may sound cliché, but I truly am one of those people who feel they were born a few decades too late, and I often wish I could be transported back to that time.
You probably won’t find much on my blog in the way of in-depth movie reviews or long summaries of movie plots as I know you can find that information on sites like IMDb.com and other blogs whose authors are very talented reviewers. What you will find are my general observations about the movies I watch, the movie stars that I love, and any new or interesting discoveries I make about all things related to classic film.
If there is anything you would like to see me cover on this blog or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or comment on any of my blog posts. I would love to hear from you!
