Discovering Golden Age flicks

While I’ve been struggling a lot with anxiety and depression this year (due to crypto troubles + breaking up with gf), the doctor prescribed me antidepressants for me, and although they’ve helped me sleep easier, one side effect is that they make me quite tired every day. As a result when I finish work everyday, I just go home, lie on the bed and watch a few movies until I drift to sleep. I’m tired almost the whole day.

So I’ve been watching a lot of old time American movies these days from the 40s and 50s. I love these old classics, they take me back to a different time when everyone wore suits and dresses and behaved so classy. Some of the movies I’ve watched recently are The Big Sleep (1946) with Humphrey Bogart, Notorious (1946) with Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman, A Place in the Sun (1951) with Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift, Rear Window (1954) with Grace Kelly and James Stewart, Sabrina (1954) with Audrey Hepburn, William Holden and Humphrey Bogart, On the Waterfront (1954) with Marlon Brando, Gentlemen prefer Blondes (1953) with Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell, East of Eden (1955) with James Dean and Julie Harris, High Society (1956) with Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, North by Northwest (1959) with Cary Grant, The Man who shot Liberty Valance (1962) with James Stewart and John Wayne and Breakfast at Tiffanys (1961) with Audrey Hepburn.

A lot of these are classics, and I’m glad I rediscovered a lot of these golden age American cinema classics while I am basically bed ridden these days after work.
