    I just wanted to say I love this movie - it's with Sidney Poitier and Katherine Hepburn.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    Hi Jersey devil. There is something so basically decent about Sidney Portier. He seemed to have warm caring heart. I also liked the movie, ''To Sir with love.'' There is another movie I saw not long ago called,''The road to redemption.'' I am sentimental so a movie has to really touch my heart for me to remember it. Unfortunately I do not get to watch many movies because I work so much. Marianita

    Hi davegering, Unfortuately I do not get to watch too many movies any more. My work schedule consists of morning and evening shifts and church and my part time job at home. Hopefully that will change. Which movie did you say was a classic? ''To Sir With Love?'' or '' The road to redemption?'' Marianita

    You know Dave, that is my favorite too. I found ''Guess who's coming to dinner?'' excellent but ''To Sir with love'' was a heartfelt movie.All those kids needed was someone to really care and make a difference in their lives. I like movies that are meaningful. Marianita

    To Sir with Love is one of my favorites too. It came out the same year I graduated from HS and every time I here that song, it takes me back to a simpler time.

    I have to sadly admit that I have not seen "To Sir with Love", or at least not that I remember. I guess I will have to watch this one.

    You know Dave, the older movies are now classics. I have never forgotton ''To Sir with love.'' I think Jersey Devil can rent it. It is a movie that one becomes completely engrossed in and never forgets. Didn't Sidney Portier also make a movie called,''In the heat of the night?'' I believe that one was quite action packed. It goes to show how versatile an actor he was. I remember going to see it just because he starred in it. Jersey Devil, you may be able to find the movie,''To sir with love,'' online. This talk about movies also takes me back to a simpler time. Life was easier then. Marianita

    After you see To Sir with Love, check out Casablanca and The Maltese Falcon. I think you will like them. I would rather watch them than any of the crap that is out now.

    Hi Angry American, The movies have a lot of profanity in them and violence. I am sure there are some good ones still. Anyway the old movies seemed to have more meaning to them. Marianita

    Hi Dave, As I recall, that movie had everyone on the edge of their seats. I will check out Casa Blanca although something tells me I may have seen it. It has been a long time ago. Do you remember the musical ''My Fair Lady?'' It was an excellent film and Rex Harrison was a great actor. Audry Hepburn also starred in it. As you may recall Rex Harrison tried to make a lady out of her and taught her to speak properly. I enjoyed that movie thoroughly. It had class. Marianita

    CASABLANCA IS A GREAT ,MOVIE AS FOR MY FAIR LADY I HAVE SEEN IT ABOUT 50 TIMES. IT IS BASED ON THE DICKENS STORY PYGMALION. THE IRONIC PART ABOUT THE MOVIE IS REX HARRISON DIOD NOT THINK JULIE ANDREWS WAS A BIG ENOUGH STAR TO PLAY THE PART IN THE MOVIE EVEN THO SHE PLAYED OPOSITE HIM ON BROADWAY. SHE ENDED UP WINNING THE ACADAMY AWARD FOR MARY POPPINS THE SAME YEAR

    Hey Dave - you've gone back to all caps. Remember, no shouting.

    Hi Dave, I do remember something about Audry Hepburn getting a part that someone else was suppose to get in ''My Fair Lady.'' That is a movie one could watch 50 times. I saw it many times myself. If you recall, Rex Harrison got the nickname ,''sexy Rexy.'' lol. What was the name of the one he starred in with the animals that enchanted children and adults alike? Audy Hepburn must have surprised Rex Harrison by winning academy awards. At any rate the movie was the best of the broadway musicals. Marianita

    I think that would be Dr Doolittle - which I loved and still love. The giant snail scene at the end where they go inside the snails shell was my favorite part of the movie.

    Default Dr. Doolittle

    Yes I remember that part. It was ever so cute. How about the part where Dr. Doolittle and his friend were eating sausages and the pig was offended? LOL. Remember those skunks? What a neat movie. I have it somewhere. Marianita
