Such a fabulous idea, Nicole! Your Mom has great taste! I want to try to get my mom to do this - she's my "classic film buff partner-in-crime," too! :D

So why isn't your mom a 502er? She's awesome. My mom is awesome in her own way, but she isn't one for rewatching a movie. If she saw it when it first came out, in say the '50's she doesn't need to see it again. Needless to say I got my movie buff gene from my late father. He used to wake up the kids for a John Ford lateshow, school be damned!

Your mom has good taste -- anyone who likes Myrna Loy is all right by me -- but as a Carole Lombard fan, I notice your mom didn't mention her. Hope she doesn't dislike her.
