I still have a VHS player for tapes. Its nice to go down to the Goodwill or Sal. Army and get tapes for little cost. I've found some classics and many I liked to see again. I even stumble across older B&W flicks as well if the local rental place dumps their tapes. I've gotten Forbidden Planet, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Fistful of Dollars, M*A*S*H(I liked it), Apollo 13, Invaders from Mars, etc., etc.. However, the hardest to find are Disney movies though they do arrive now and then. Of course, my VHS is getting old but there are used VHS players for sale too, when mine dies. I like to get one of those VHS->DVD converters I've read about but cash is short. adieu -----Willy
"Civil rights is one thing. This here is somethin' else."
That was my favorite line from the movie we watched tonight. It was spoken by the black housekeeper in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
I finally broke down and subscribed to Netflix a few weeks ago and I've been getting caught up on a whole boatload of films that I never saw the first time around. Some, like this one, I've enjoyed. Others made me wonder what all the fuss was about. For example, I thought MASH was so awful that I turned it off after about 30 minutes.
I didn't know what to expect in watching Guess Who's Coming ... and I was surprised by how funny it was as well as how preachy it was. Still, it was a remarkable film for its time.
