Happy Watching....

With this season of Cold Feet coming to an end yesterday,
my evening TV drought especially on weekends has started.
I'm no "soaps" connoisseur, nor am I a lover of "talent" shows, 
so the run up to Christmas on TV 
is mostly a rather dull & boring affair for me.
Thank goodness for DVDs!
Thinking I may not be the only one out there who
finds telly a little uninspiring during the hibernation months,
I thought it'd be fun to share with you
ever so often one of my favorite films.
These posts are not reviews.... I'm no wannabe film critic.
You also won't find a long detailed synopsis about
the films highlighted on here either.
I see these posts more like a good host at a party, making the
introductions but the rest is up to you, nevertheless like a good host
I'm always very interested to hear your thoughts on it after.
Like everything else about me I don't fit neatly into one
specific film category box. There is however no point in denying
I'm very much a vintage & quirky movie girl at heart.
And therefor I'm starting off this "happy watching" series, with a film
that is vintage, quirky and has a real Autumn feel about it.
I LoVe murder mysteries & I like Hitchcock
but I definitely don't do gory blood & guts on screen,
I know to some that may seem a little contradictory....  

   "The Trouble with Harry"
however is perfect for exactly that contradiction. 
 Probably not the best known of Hitchcock's films,
it is the story of a small village during a beautiful
Vermont Autumn where the discovery of a newly dead body
in the woods creates more then a few problems
for some of the quirkier residents in the village.
A great black humored romantic comedy with stunning
scenery and unbelievable calmness even in the panic,
a real joy to watch!
The introduction is made,
 now I would LoVe to hear what you think?!?

  1. I discovered this movie last year. It was so good and like you say so un-Hitchcock like. We thought that the young lad in it was excellent, he delivers his punch lines so well.
    The countryside of Vermont is stunning, definitely a movie to settle down and watch at this time of year.
    Looking forward to reading your other recommendations.

  2. Ooh I haven't seen this one so will keep an eye out for it. I only started watching Hitchcock films in the last year or so (shocking, I know!) but I'm steadily working my way through. In the process I've become a James Stewart fan!

  3. Moving on to see the news.
    Good week.

  4. Hello Anna! Interesting film, I haven't seen it, and haven't seen Hitchcock in many years. I like to watch crime, but not the very brutal ones. I have also thought about writing about my favourite films on my blog, I love the romantic and "dreamy" films...
    I will watch out for your film, Anna.
    Have a beautiful day,
