I love old film. I collect vintage stuff - Lumiere Brothers, Mitchell and Kenyon and all that. Not so fond of 'movies' just the stuff they filmed of peoples' everyday lives.
Or the old GPO documentaries - which I now have all of.

And funny you should post this today because I just bookmarked this;

for future use an hour or so ago.

I also happily browse Movietone.com and British Pathe- could spend hours there - and do....

i love an old film in the afternoon - sometimes channel five have one on or film 4. I like particularly Blithe Spirit, The Quiet Man, plus any northern dramas, old westerns too - Cup of tea, home madecake Fire lit, children playing or snoozing quietly on the settee, It is a winter activity for me but mmmmmmmm Lovely.

A few miserable days have been cheered up by old films One really miserable day at a christmas I spent without the boys was made bearable by watching "A taste of Honey" not just a film but a slice of history, the docks, the stereotype of a gay man, Dora Bryants heels - fantastic.
