Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Can't remember the name of a movie? let us help...

Tammy (tammymerlot) | 26 comments I've got one! It was a movie made (I think) in the 1960's. A woman marries her dream man - a charming photographer who totally adores her. The woman's mother gives her a puppy training manual and tells her to use it to train her husband. The results are hysterical! I don't remember who the actors are, but I do recall that the photographer hubby constantly had a string of swimsuit models in/out of their apartment.

WOW! When you're right, you're right, Pamela! I looked it up on imdb.com after I read your comment. :)

You'd think I would remember Sandra Dee in that movie. My parents chose my name after they saw Tammy and the Bachelor at a drive-in theater. I grew up watching the series! Sandra Dee starred as Tammy in Tammy and the Doctor and Tammy Tell Me True.

You know I haven't seen that one completely yet. I've seen most of it but it seems I always have to go somewhere or do something. The other 2 I used to have on VHS and could watch whenever I wanted to.

Tammy (tammymerlot) | 26 comments I bought all 3 movies together in one DVD set from B&N.

I still have several hundred VHS tapes. I hope to phase more of them out and get more DVDs. Maybe I'll break down and get it :)

Tammy (tammymerlot) | 26 comments I've been slowly replacing my VHS tapes too. I had to giggle when my youngest daughter (7-years-old) found an old VHS tape that she wanted to watch and she couldn't figure out how to put it in the DVD player! It hadn't occured to me that kids her age don't know what a VCR is. Just like the time my 16-year-old didn't know what a record player was. :P

See, this is what I dislike most about remakes/updating older movies. They are a window into our past.

Abigail Sharpe (abigailsharpe) | 2010 comments It's like listening to my kid say "broken record" when he has no idea where the expression came from.


message 13: by Faithmarie (new)

Faithmarie The original ... Magnificent Obsession .. not the one with Rock Hudson but the original ...
I saw it when I was young but never saw it again and I don't know if it has the same name .. I just know it was the same story.. Like Pygmalion and My Fair Lady.... and I liked Pygmalion better...

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments lol I still have my old record player and even a few albums.


message 15: by Heather L (new)

Heather L (wordtrix) | 1193 comments My sister rolled her eyes at me when I moved this past summer as I still have our mom's old stereo with turntable and two crates of records owned by parents and grandparents.

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments I just got rid of all my old albums about six months ago, before the remodel. **sigh** Some were my parents. I haven't had a turntable in over a decade; it was time.


message 17: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (last edited Dec 16, 2012 08:48AM) (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I gave hundreds of albums to my brother but I kept about 20. I'd love to transfer them to cd. Some of them are time/life collections.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 13013 comments My twentysomething daughter took our old turntable and all my husband's old records. She loves them - i think she should have been born in the 60's like her parents... My husband had cool records like the Beatles, The Clash, Debbie Harry and Blondie, Pink Floyd... she didn't like my pop ones!


message 19: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I had albums like Styx, REO Speedwagon, Chicago, The Eagles, John Lennon, Kansas, America, ELO, Bee Gees, Beach Boys, Bread, Cheap Trick, Dr Hook, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Supertramp...

just to name a few.


message 20: by Abigail (new)

Abigail Sharpe (abigailsharpe) | 2010 comments The first album I ever bought was the soundtrack to Footloose.


message 21: by Heather L (new)

Heather L (wordtrix) | 1193 comments The first album I ever owned was "Urban Chipmunk." Hey, don't judge!


message 22: by Kit★ (new)

Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 648 comments Lol, I'm still trying to talk my mom into giving me some of her old albums. I pick 'em up at yard sales when I can, I've probably got about 30-40 now. Got a little Monkees, Rod Stewart, The Cars, Neil Young, Queen, Beatles, bunch more I can't think of at the moment. I've even got a big set from the 50s of traditional Japanese music, it's pretty cool. I'd love to have a whole bunch more. Now if I could get her ex-husband to give me his old Zeppelin and Floyd ones he's got chillin' in his living room, I'd be ecstatic! There's nothing like the sound of a record on a turntable, it has that delicious kinda fuzzy sound or something, just makes the music sound good to me. When my dog was a pup though, he ate the cord off my turntable, so right now all the albums are boxed up, but one of these days I'm gonna get it fixed :D


message 23: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Oh, yes. I'd listen to the old Led Zeppelin. Did you see them on Letterman the other night?
