Vintage Love: My Top 10 Favorite Classic Films

I know it’s cliche, but I love old movies! Here is a list of my top ten favorites, not in any particular order:

1. Sabrina {1954}
I just adore this film! Audrey Hepburn just shines throughout the whole movie. The Givenchy gowns are devine, and the whole feel of the film is sophisticated. I’ve seen the remake, but to me, nothing can compare to the original.

2. Roman Holiday {1953}
Another gem, this film was Audrey Hepburn’s first movie. It’s charming, simple, and classic. I love the on location filming throughout Rome, and also Gregory Peck’s character.

3. To Catch a Thief {1955}

 Alfred Hitchcock was indeed the master of suspense. This film is one of my favorite of his. I adore Grace Kelly, her costumes, and the stunning Monaco scenery.  What’s not to love?

4. The Court Jester {1956}
Maybe you are looking for something with a bit of humor, wit, music, adventure, and fun? If so than The Court Jester is for you! My best friend introduced me to this film a couple of years ago, and I love it. Danny Kaye, Glynis Johns, Angela Lansbury, and Basil Rathbone star in this musical comedy.

5. Charade {1963}
Audrey Hepburn and Carey Grant are smashing in this swanky sixties mystery. Plenty of suspense, drama, romance, and style.

6. Anastasia {1956}
Ingrid Bergman stars in this beautiful version of the Anastasia Rominov story, something I’ve always been fascinated by.


7. White Christmas {1954}
One of the most classic Christmas films ever made. I love it any time of year!

White Christmas movie - Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kay, & Vera Ellen. My favorite Christmas movie, with some of the best actors, singers & dancers of their time.

8. Strangers on a Train {1951}
Another fantastic Hitchcock film, this one stars Farley Granger, Ruth Roman, and Robert Walker.

9. Pride and Prejudice {1940}
I grew up on this classic version of Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice. While it might not be the most true version to her story, I love the quaintness of it. Stars the fabulous Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier.

10.  Captain Blood {1935}
And if your in the mood for a swashbuckling adventure, try Captain Blood, the original pirate movie. Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland star for the first time together in this fantastic adventure film.
