Classic Movies

This post has been pending for too long, so it’s time to do something about it.

My husband has influenced me so much when it come black and white films.

There’s only a handful of black and white video I’ve seen in my life. Among them is Charlie Chaplin and the first episodes of the original Star Trek series and the first Time Machine movie.

Thanks to Christopher, a blogger whom I’ve never expected to feel like a close friend when I first followed him, I ended up watching Waterloo Bridge 1940.

This sweet but tragic love story is touching and well, sad… I can’t even call it bittersweet. My heart was being rip to pieces as watch their love end. If only I know beforehand… god why did she have to do that to herself? Is it really hard to understand that a man can love you no matter what? 😭

Love old movies with a heartbreaking ending? Try watching this.

  1. I have never seen this movie, but I like the old classic black and white movies and have a large collection of them. But sad endings are not really for me!πŸ˜•

  2. Thank you for sharing this!! I haven’t seen this one. I also enjoy classic movies. TMC is one of my favorite channels! My husband was the one that introduced me to my love for them too!! πŸ™ŒπŸ‘

      1. There are a few exceptions, but I generally don’t either. I want to know what happens in this movie now though. I’ll make sure I have plenty of tissues, wine, and ice cream for comfort! πŸ˜†

  3. I love your review of the 1940 version of Waterloo Bridge, Jessica.

    My favourite film of all time.

    Well that and Casablanca.

    I see the film moved you.

    It is a sad tale.

    But a great one.

    1. Yes, it moved me alright. I feel sad just remembering. But as you said. A great tale πŸ™‚

      I’ve seen the Casablanca too some years ago, I remember liking it but I don’t remember so much of the plot now…

      1. It seems like a very timely movie today.

        The story was set right at the start of the Second World War when it seemed the whole world was falling apart.

        And now with the Covid-19 pandemic, it feels like the whole world is falling apart again.
