Since the goal of this blog is to arouse an interest in the great films of old, it only makes sense to discuss films I have enjoyed.  Rarely will there be a review of a film I don't like. Though I may occasionally make mention of such films, my intent will always be to focus on the good rather than on the bad.  I am not a film critic---just a classic film appreciator---so I have no desire to criticize or point out flaws.  Nearly every film listed below is one I have enjoyed and would recommend, some more so than others, of course.  You also will not find spoilers here...I want to tell just enough about a film to whet the appetite to see more of it.  Just click on the title to instantly see my review.
