Movies I Watched in July

Isn't this floating card table in Maisie was a Lady (1941) amazing?

This month was much better movie-wise. I even started back up watching White Collar! Also I FINALLY watched both The Lady Vanishes and Brief Encounter! Loved both of them! If you like Brief Encounter you should watch Falling in Love (1984). It's not a remake but it's very similar. I've never been a fan of Meryl Streep but I really liked her in this one. She actually reminded me of my cousin's teenage daughter. I watched it on Kanopy.

Favorite Movie: Tough Guys was really funny. Eli Wallach was hilarious, especially the part where he picks up the walker. Also Brief Encounter and Falling in Love.

A dream is alright. It's an island everybody can sail to. But you can't stay on it or make a life on it.

I hope I spot this gown from Maisie was a Lady (1941) in another movie someday! 
It looks like it has a sparkly crescent moon on the front. And love the back too!

  1. I just rewatched Tough Guys a couple days ago! Hadn't seen it since it came out in the theaters, but I'd loved it then. I forgot how funny Eli Wallach was! Those glasses! And the part with the walker was hilarious.
