Kayli 500 for all you people attending the movie of the month event you post any old fashioned movies in this section. Try to figure out what year the movie was made. I would say old fashioned movies years are from 1925-1970. So if you have any movies you would like to post that were made in between 1925-1970, they go here.

Alex DeLarge | 851 comments Thanks for the invitation Kayli! My tastes tend towards the esoteric but there are some great "popular" films: my vote is for Robert Mulligan's 1962 classic TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD.

Shoud I post my review, or wait to see if others would like to watch and discuss?

Serena | 44 comments Ha! A buddy had a cat called Ratso Rizzo - what a great name.
I mostly remember thinking that they needed to get a different song or two on the soundtrack.
