Here's a clip from that sweet movie.
Also, in honor of Coop, I'll be watching High Noon for probably the dozenth time in my life. High Noon is a great message movie, which found Coop receiving his second Best Actor Oscar.
In addition to Coop's birthday, it's also Mother's Day weekend, which means I watch "mommy" movies...you know, the kinds of movies that showcase a mother's love for her children. I have four favorite "mommy" movies...Penny Serenade (reviewed HERE), Madame X (reviewed HERE), Stella Dallas, and Imitation of Life (reviewed HERE).
Here's a little clip from Imitation of Life:
Maybe I'll have a chance to watch all four of my "mommy" movies this weekend...highly doubtful, though, since I want to get two Coop movies in as well. So, if I don't have the time for all four, Madame X and Stella Dallas are the ones I think I'll watch this year. I will definitely need to have the tissues nearby.
By the way, an old dog really CAN learn new tricks...even though I am quite unsavvy when it comes to techy things, I WAS able to figure out how to add these little video clips to my post. I visit so many blogs that use them, and I always think they add so much to the post. They really bring the movie to life, in a way that mere words alone cannot do. So, I set my mind to figuring out how to add them to mine, and, ta da...I did it!! Wonders never cease.
For those of you who are Gary Cooper fans, I'd love to hear which of his films is your favorite. Also, my "mommy" movies are all tremendous tearjerkers. I love tearjerkers and am always looking to discover a new one. So, please share with me about any of your favorites.
Anyhow, happy viewing to all. And wishing all the moms out there a wonderful Mother's Day.
