A-Z Movie Meme

I've been tagged by fellow blogger Ibetolis at the excellent blog Film for the Soul to do the A-Z Movie Meme started by Blog Cabins. Premise is simple, just list a good film that starts with each letter of the alphabet. There are some crazy rules to follow, but I like to throw rules out the window on this blog, so I'm doing my own thing, see? I'm trying to either chose films that I'm interested in or really like right now to match with each letter.

Thanks Ibetolis!

A is for All That Heaven Allows (1956)
B is for Bonjour Tristesse (1958)
C is for Christmas in Connecticut (1945)
D is for D.O.A. (1950)
E is for East of Eden (1955)
F is for Father of the Bride (1950)
G is for Good News (1947) ... goody, good, good, good!
H is for Holiday Affair (1949)
I is for Idiot's Delight (1939)
J is for Jezebel (1938)
K is for Keep Your Powder Dry (1945)
L is for The Letter (1940)
M is for Metropolis (1927)
N is for Nancy Drew, Detective (1938)
O is for Out of the Past (1947)
P is for A Patch of Blue (1965)
Q is for Queen Christina (1934)
R is for River of No Return (1954)
S is for Strangers When We Meet (1960)
T is for Thunder Road (1958)
U is for Unfaithfully Yours (1948)
V is for The Virgin Suicides (1999)
W is for The Women (1939)
X is for Madame X (1966)
Y is for Yours, Mine and Ours (1968)
Z is for Ziegfeld Girl (1941)

As my friend Lisa would say, tag yourselves bitches!

I would also like to thank Jacqueline over at Another Old Movie Blog for tagging me too.


  1. Raquel,
    Gosh that's a list! And most of your choices are white spots on my map. I have a lot to learn here! :)
    Good News! June Allyson! Yay!Have you seen the 1930 version?

  2. There you have it. The sole reason why I tag you every time I get one of these meme's, I can always expect something unique, bold and classic.

    East of Eden, All That Heaven Allows, Father of the Bride, Metropolis, Madame X and Out of the Past (naturally) are inspired choices.

    Great list and thanks for the shout.

  3. Jezebel is one of those movies that I can't not watch when it's on. It's so over the top, but so entertaining.

  4. I agree with The Women 100%! It is such an amazing film and its still so funny. Not to mention it came out during the best film year ever: 1939. Why did they feel the need to remake such a perfect film? Sometimes I think Hollywood will never learn that some films just can't be remade.

  5. Some great choices, and you cover a lot of deacades. "Out of the Past" hmm, sounds familiar. Would make a good blog title.

  6. Great list! :) Almost all of the films are pre-1970 as well. Very awesome! :D

  7. Jonas - Thanks! I have only seen clips of the 1930 version and it looked good. Have you seen it?

    Ibetolis - Thank you so much for tagging me. I'm glad you liked my choices. I'm looking forward to the next tag.

    Princess - I totally agree Jezebel - over the top.

    Genevieve - Check out my review of the new version of The Women:

    Jacqueline - Thanks. Unfortunately, someone thought so too and I might have a copycat on my tail. I can't complain. There is a noir podcast blog by the same name too.

    C. Philips - I struggled with "V" I was trying to make everything pre 1970s. I almost made it!


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
