My Classic Film Alphabet

I've wanted to do this since I saw Millie's great post in April but I only just got around to it. It took me quite a while to narrow down certain letters to just one film but in the end I decided just to go with the films that I'm really loving at the moment, regardless of whether I've loved them for years or for just a couple of months. I feel really bad for missing out Ball of Fire, It Happened One Night, The Grass is Greener, The Lady Eve, and so many more! Oh, well.

Here goes...

A is for Auntie Mame (1958)

B is for Breakfast at Tiffany's (1963)

C is for Cool Hand Luke (1967)

D is for Dream Wife (1953)

E is for The End of the Affair (1955)

F is for From Here To Eternity (1953)

G is for The Great Escape (1963)

H is for How To Steal a Million (1966)

I is for I Remember Mama (1948)

J is for Julia Misbehaves (1948)

K is for The King and I (1956)

L is for Love is a Many-Splendored Thing (1955)

M is for Mrs. Miniver (1942)

N is for The Night of the Iguana (1960)

O is for On the Beach (1959)

P is for The Parent Trap (1961)

Q is for The Quiet Man (1952)

R is for Random Harvest (1942)

S is for The Sound of Music (1965)

T is for The Trouble With Angels (1966)

U is for The Ugly Dachshund (1966)

V is for The Voice of the Turtle (1947)

W is for White Christmas (1954)

X is for nothing classic that I've seen. So you get The X Files. Any excuse to post a photo of Gillian Anderson.

Y is for Yours, Mine and Ours (1968)

Z is for Zulu (1964)

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. Well done!

    Wonderful picture selections, and lots of memories tied up with those movies.

  2. Hey, that was nice! I have to check some of them, like "On the beach" and "Love is a many-splendored thing"...but I agree with you in most of your choices! Greetings from Chile, Sophie!

  3. @Caftan Woman: Thank you!

    @Clara: Thanks, Clara :) Oh, you must watch those two, I really love them. I saw "Love is a Many-Splendored Thing" a few months ago for the first time in 3 or 4 years and it instantly became a favourite. It's a beautiful film.

  4. I love it! So many that I wish I had been able to include! :-D
