One of the umbrellas under this Finer Things is the George Kaplan Film Society. Our purpose in this is to watch films made in the years 1920-1980-- 60 years of cinema with the old Hollywood actors. The name comes from North by Northwest, starring the ever so classy Cary Grant who was mistaken for the double agent, George Kaplan. I hadn’t seen this movie in years and Israel had never seen it, so he randomly picked it up at the library and we watched it last night. The dialogue was smart and original, and Cary made us laugh the whole way through.
Oh, Cary Grant and your biting wit!
This reminded me of a summer spent with two old souls, Enumale and Tricia, watching old films like this one while expanding our culinary experiences.
Israel hasn’t seen a lot of older films like this one, so I’m excited to introduce him to Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, of course followed up by Katherine Hepburn, Gregory Peck, and a whole list of others! There are so many great old movies! Any suggestions?
Next on the list is both a Christmas film and a Jimmy Stewart classic: It's a Wonderful Life.
