- The oatmeal raisin cookie is the king of cookie deliciousness.
- Plant perennials. Their beauty exceeds temporary annuals as you get to watch them grow and bloom every year, and you get great pride in saying to yourself: "I planted that."
- Westies are the most sociable dog. Maybe the cutest too.
- If stranded on a desert island with just one movie, I'd take The Third Man.
- Into my sixth decade, my patience gets longer each year and my hair shorter. It's all there though!
- I miss John Wayne, William Holden, and Steve McQueen.
- Deborah Kerr and Rita Hayworth looked great as blonds.
- A book that is surprisingly excellent: Bram Stoker's Dracula.
The 3rd responsibility requires me to suggest seven of my posts in various categories. I'm not wild about the categories and not sure my reviews really fit the format, but I'll do my best:
- Most Beautiful Piece: My thoughts on Deborah Kerr, whose beauty and grace always reminds me of why I love classic films.
- Most Helpful: I love film noir. Here's a piece I did about this great American art form.
- Most Popular: Based on the number page views, it's apparently my review of The Planet of the Apes series. The first and fourth are my favorites. Skip the last one. It's an abomination.
- Most Controversial: Hmmm. I'll go with one featuring the great Setsuko Hara. A lot of folks know about the Noriko Trilogy, but few have likely seen No Regrets for Our Youth. As usual, she's terrific in an very interesting film.
- Most Surprisingly Successful: Johnny Guitar.
- Most Underrated: I take this to mean the film, not my review. Moby Dick. It's a great film and reminds me of my dad, a career Navy man who loved the book.
- Most Pride Worthy: Hitchcock needs to be on here somewhere. Vertigo.
The 4th responsibility is to nominate seven other bloggers and notify them. My Blog List includes several blogs that I routinely follow. Like Caftan Woman, they are interesting and terrifically written by other fans who love old films. Today I happily will pass along the 7 X 7 Link Award to these folks. I trust they'll accept in the spirit intended, and follow-up as they choose.
- classicmoviechat.com/ is a fun site.
- Noir fans must bookmark Noir of the Week.
- For fans of the Master of Suspense, I suggest Alfred Hitchcock Geek.
- A Trip Down Memory Lane is always worth a visit.
- They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To has great taste.
- If you like fashion and style, you must check out: Glamamor.
- For a monsterific good time: Classic Movie Monsters.
Happy reading, all. Thanks again, Wyatt.
