12 Movies In 2021

If you've followed me here long enough, then you know how much I love old movies! So I thought in 2021 I would choose 12 "chic flicks" from the 1950's - 1970's . Some of these are old favorites and a few I've either never seen or at least never finished. My plan is to watch one movie each month and then post a recap and review. Truth be told,  I watch several old movies each month, but I wanted to specifically choose twelve to focus on this year. 

In most cases I either own the movie on DVD, or I will be renting or purchasing it from Amazon. My plan is to **TRY** to watch them on the first Friday of each month. I've marked (*) the movies I've never watched, or never finished and feel they are worth a second try. If you'd like to join me, I will post a reminder each week of which movie I'm watching and when. Prime has watch parties, but since signal is sometimes an issue in the van, I'm not sure that's possible. At any rate, I hope you'll enjoy the recaps and maybe you'll be introduced to a few gems you may not be familiar with. The fun begins this Friday, January 8!

Have you seen the movies "Man from Snowy River" and "Return to Snowy River"? Based in Australia, about horses and a romance between the rich land owners' daughter and a mountain man, at the turn of the century.

WOW! It's been YEARS since I've watched either of them, but I do recall that I enjoyed them! I'll have to see if I can dig them up somewhere. Thanks for the reminder! :)
