About

Hi, my name is Ginny and I’d like to welcome you to Old Movies Nostalgia, a blog devoted to my love of old movies and the time period in which they were made.

04

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 even 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 (1940) in that class, my outlook on those “boring” old black and white movies was changed forever.

I fell in love with the movie and old movies in general that day, and my love and appreciation for them has grown with each passing year. I have now watched over 600 films from the 1920’s through the 1960’s, a number I hope to increase significantly in the future.

As I continue to grow that number, I will be sharing my thoughts about the movies I watch, the movie stars that I love, and any interesting or helpful resources I discover along the way about all things related to classic film. I also love to learn about the general history of the time period; the fashions, music, cars, etc. and would love to connect with others who share a similar passion.

If there is anything you would like to see featured on this blog or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or share your thoughts in the comments section of my posts.

I’d also love to connect with you here:

    Just wanted to say it’s so great to see someone my age have a true appreciation for the classics. I’ve never met anyone else from my generation that loves old movies as much as I do. I recently found you on Facebook and discovered this blog. I’ll definitely be reading it and enjoying your commentary on all things related to the greatest era for movies, music and the like. Thank you for your contribution in keeping this time period alive for those of us who love it so much.

    Hi!
    I’m glad that there is more of “us”! (“Boring, old-fashioned types of folks”) I’m glad you mentioned that there was a time when old movies were not “up-to-date” and that’s why perhaps not interesting. I couldn’t agree more. When I was in high school I certainly wouldn’t have watched a black n’ white one. But there were some outdated ones I liked to watch or re-watch. And then internet changed everything. Now because I lived in Croatia there weren’t many options to watch much of old films, on TV you can’t choose, and at vhs, and later at dvd rental store you couldn’t borrow anything because they didn’t have anything. And as I mentioned internet changed everything. I tried “noir” and came across some old, b&w, produced by Orson Welles and the rest is “history”. I have some small collection of my favorites, and some of them I re-watched many times. In compare with current movie industry, I don’t know some things I just don’t understand. Maybe I was born a few decades too late. 60′, 70′ and 80′ did have some romantics as r’n’r and hippy movement, disco, certainly. But that period between 20′ and 50′ when men used to wear suits and hats, and supposed to be gentlemen, when women used to be dames and nice ladies, and jazz music… That’s it! If they ever make time-machine I know to “when” I would like to travel. I like your idea for blog and hope to read more from you.
    Thank you
