But as I haven't started really watching those movies until a few years ago, I have only now started to dive into the extravaganza of titles the classic Hollywood era contains. Which again means there are so many treasures yet to be discovered!
But I thought, why not discover some of them together?
Thus I'm dedicating the first days of November to celebrating Classic Hollywood.
Now, the obvious way to do so, is to review a lot of movies of the time, and that is where I need your help, lovely readers:)
Would you like to share some of your favourite classic movies with the blogosphere? Then this is the chance to do so!
According to Wikipedia the Classic Hollywood era is described as movies made in the years 1917-1960, but I'm a little more liberal, so I will say any movie from before 1970 is eligible to be reviewed in this celebration.
If you want to participate and already now know which movie(s) you will be reviewing, do tell me in a comment and I'll add it to the list I'm starting below. It is completely all right to have several reviews of the same movie, but it's also nice to get as big a variety as possible;)
