    I've really gotten into watching old movies over the break. I've always loved the Hitchcock ones and movies like Harvey and Bringing up Baby. This break I saw All About Eve for the first time, Rebecca and one called Stage Beauty.

    Any recommendations for some old movies that you love (and by old I'd say like pre-70's).
