My wife and I went to see "Hugo" this weekend. It was actually a very sweet movie. Not at all what I was expecting. The 3D really makes it come to life.

I don't think I've ever seen a Cary Grant movie that I didn't like. He's my favorite of the classic cinema actors. So much class and charisma in his roles. I think my favorite though is either To Catch a Theif (for the more serious side) or Houseboat (for the lighter side). I loved Sofia Lorene in Houseboat too; she was so fun. And my goodness that woman was gorgeous!

It has all new bonus features. They have an intimate retrospective of Bing and Fred featuring an interview with Freds daughter Ava Astaire MacKenzie. I saw film footage I have never seen before. What a joy.
That's one of my husband's favorite movies! Where did you find it? I'd love to get it for him.

I started to watch Unknown last night but fell asleep on the couch mid way through. I'll finish watching it tonight.

It's the 25th anniversary of CG's death today. He died of a massive aneurism after falling ill during a rehearsal while staying at the Blackhawk Hotel in Davenport, IA. I've always loved his acting.

The Subie is dark grey with white sidewalls, looks like it's in a tux.
