Wish List

The holidays are approaching and the weather is getting colder and colder, so I thought to keep me occupied I'd do a little Old Hollywood Wish list. It's all out of fun and you all can join in!

1. TCM'S Leading Couples, sure they don't have Dana Andrews in it but I love learning more about Old Hollywood. Bonus- Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell are featured in the book.

2. Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide(No Picture Available)- Another book to add to the library plus I'm eager to see what movies are included in the book.

3. 501 must see Movies-
Every time I see this book at Border's, it's when I'm leaving the store. I wish I had seen it, when I was walking in.

4. Joseph Cotten's Autobiography- "Vanity will get you Somewhere" Sure it isn't available to buy in stores but the Internet always helps. I love hearing people's side of things and I'm a huge fan of Joseph's, so it would be interesting.

5. Myrna Loy's Autobiography- "Being and Becoming" Just like Cotten's, Loy's autobiography isn't available in stores but again you can find it on the internet. The only problem is it's about $25.00 while Cotten's you can get for $1.99 on Border's. Cotten's is a paperback and Loy's hardcover.

6. Midnight(1939) starring Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, and John Barrymore. I saw this movie in June and I thought it was one of the funniest that I'd ever seen.

7. The Lady Eve(1941) starring Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda I have no idea why I can't find this in movie stores but I know it's available on the internet

8. The Ox-Bow Incident(1943) starring Henry Fonda and Dana Andrews

9. The Best Years of Our Lives(1946) starring Fredric March and Dana Andrews

10. Rebecca(1940) starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier

I do have so much more but those are just a few of the items that I'd love to own.

I always have such a hard time in bookstores -- twice now I've had to pry myself away from Dark Victory, a Bette Davis biography, because I just couldn't part with the cash. Sometimes I wish I had a little bit less willpower, you know?

I really should start compiling my wish list but mine would go on forever : ) I highly recommend TCM's book and Rebecca. I have TCM's Leading Ladies and it was a really great buy.
