  • How to Steal a Million

    How to Steal a Million

    ★★★★½

    "There's the bathroom, take off your clothes."

    How to Steal a Million is a clever, quick-paced comedy that sparkles with charm, warmth and director William Wyler uses an inventive plot with suspenseful twists to detail a Parisian art theft.

    William Wyler was at the end of his distinguished career when he undertook this project. The film with a screenplay by Harry Kurnitz is a film that doesn't break any new grounds, but it's a favorite of a lot of fans,…

  • My Fair Lady

    My Fair Lady

    ★★★★½

    🎶I Could Have Danced All Night!🎶

    My Fair Lady is complex, with in-depth characterization, which is impeccably filmed with many imaginative and original touches. It's a truly beautiful film, that deserved all the praise it got and it's an amazing film, that is misunderstood.

    The film looks exquisite, with stunning sets and truly luscious costumes. A prime example is the ballroom scene. Audrey Hepburn's dresses are also a marvel to look at. This was also helped by the superb cinematography…

  • Love in the Afternoon

    Love in the Afternoon

    ★★★★½

    "It's a tiny bottle of perfume and very large bananas."

    Love in the Afternoon is a charming film. It's a May - December romance that's charming and humorous. It's produced in a more innocent time, when people dressed like civilized human beings and dreamed of happily ever after.

    This story, characters and cast could easily have fallen apart irretrievably in the first few minutes. That it holds together is due primarily to Audrey Hepburn's unsurpassed charm and Billy Wilder's resourceful…

  • Funny Face

    Funny Face

    ★★★★½

    "Take the picture, take the picture!"

    Funny Face is fashion in heaven. Filmed in part on location in Paris, "Funny Face" beautifully conveys its story of romance with elegance and charm. Smart fashion costumes, photography and choreography combine to make this film a hit.

    The film owes its appeal to Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn), an actress not known for being a singer or a dancer, but who had enough charm to make the film her own. The pairing with the…

  • The Seven Year Itch

    The Seven Year Itch

    ★★★★½

    "It shakes me! It quakes me! It makes me feel goose-pimply all over!"

    The Seven Year Itch is a hilarious film. The film retains its freshness and bounce, a delightful testament both to the script by Billy Wilder and playwright George Axelrod, as well as the quality of the performances.

    The story is a simple one: left on his own during a hot New York summer, Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) tries his best to avoid the temptations of drink, tobacco…

  • Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

    ★★★★½

    🎶A kiss on the hand, May be quite continental, But diamonds are a girl's best friend…🎶

    Gentlemen Prefer Blondes is an absolute classic among film musicals, with showstoppers like "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend", "Bye Bye Baby" and "Isn't Anyone Here For Love" in eye-popping gorgeous technicolor.

    The story is simple: Dorothy Shaw (Jane Russell) and Lorelei Lee (Marilyn Monroe) work together as entertainers and are also good friends. Lorelei's millionaire fiancé Gus Esmond Jr. (Tommy Noonan) sends the…

  • How to Marry a Millionaire

    How to Marry a Millionaire

    ★★★★½

    "Wealthy men are never old."

    How to Marry a Millionaire is one of the brightest and wittiest comedies of the 1950s, also certainly quite an eyeful when you've got three leads of the caliber of Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall.

    These three lovely girls, following the cue from Schatze Page (Lauren Bacall), chip in and get a long term lease on a swank apartment where the owner has had to leave the country because of income tax problems.…

  • Niagara

    Niagara

    ★★★★½

    "Who says the nights are for sleeping?"

    Niagara is a overlooked Marilyn Monroe film, but it's a very enjoyable film. It's basically one of those wonders who came out of the dream factory of the 1950s and still manage to leave deep impressions in fresh viewers.

    The film follows Polly Cutler (Jean Peters) and Ray Cutler (Max Showalter), who are the classically 1950s "innocent optimists" on a belated honeymoon to Niagara Falls, but their lives become dangerously intertwined with the…

  • Monkey Business

    Monkey Business

    ★★★★½

    "When I dance with you, I want to dance with all of you. I don't want your brain to be somewhere else."

    Monkey Business is a classic film that is still relevant in the way that people are obsessed with finding ways to stay young, youth isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    The film follows Dr. Barnaby Fulton (Cary Grant), who is an absent minded, but brilliant scientist, who is loyal to Edwina Fulton (Ginger Rogers), his very patient…

  • Don't Bother to Knock

    Don't Bother to Knock

    ★★★★½

    "You look so different in those clothes."

    "I'm different all the time."

    Don't Bother to Knock is an unremarkable film noir thriller that has a story with little in the way of suspense, excitement, pace and interesting plot twists.

    The film follows Nell Forbes (Marilyn Marilyn), who plays a young lady whose uncle Eddie Forbes (Elisha Cook Jr.) works at a hotel. He asks her to come babysit for some guests and everything seems fine at first. At about the…

  • Dark Passage

    Dark Passage

    ★★★★½

    "I learned some things that even I never knew before."

    Dark Passage is the third of four Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall pairings and is a wonderful film. It offers a different take on the San Francisco noir genre. It's a film in which we get to know about the story that unfolds in front of us told in narrative style by the hero, who is never seen until about one hour into the picture. Delmer Daves, adapting the David Goodis novel…

  • The Pink Panther

    The Pink Panther

    ★★★★½

    "We must find that woman!"

    The Pink Panther is as good as the next, "A Shot in the Dark". Both are examples of how to make excellent comedies with a sound story, a creatively hilarious and smart screenplay, a good set of characters and a unique style of filming that elevates "slapstick comedy" to the highest level of sophistication. There are so many quotable lines that are well worth to write them down as you watch the film.

    The cast…
