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.


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.
