This month I watched Citizen Kane for the first time! It was different from what I expected. The story line didn't seem that unique to me but the cinematography and editing was interesting! I also watched the classic Dracula. Last October I watched half of The Story of Mankind (1957) but was bored so I didn’t finish it. TCM aired it again this month and, like I mentioned in last years post, I am a completest and therefore watched the second half. It was better. The Marx Brothers were funny.
The part they gave Anna May Wong in Impact was insulting to her talent and embarrassing to watch.
I read the novel Rebecca and rewatched the 1940 film. You can read my thoughts on them here (including the new Netflix adaptation).

Least Favorite Film: Double Trouble was terrible!
Favorite Movie: Loved The Thomas Crown Affair!!! Breakfast for Two was really cute and The Runaway Bus was unexpectedly funny. Tony Curtis was adorable in Flesh and Fury (the film would have been more effective if the sound had been handled differently).
