hey dr. m.

just watched the apartment and some like it hot for the first time (lol, i suck) loved them both:

1. What's next? (I've seen Ace in the Hole, eh, didn't like it that much.)

2. Am I correct in thinking that Some Like it Hot is better than the Apartment?

3. etc

I actually prefer The Apartment after loving SLIH since childhood. It's deeper, less broad, and Hot kinda peaks with the Lemmon-Joe E Brown tango (at least til the last line).

Along with Midnight, this splendid Lubitsch comedy stars future Trading Places villain Don Ameche:

These might qualify, too:

The Awful Truth
Forsaking All Others (I'm especially fond of Charles Buttersworth in this film.)

managed to track down a copy of midnight so ima scrn a double feature tomorrow w/some friends + drinkz. it sounds a+ exactly what i was thinking of even if takes place in paris

already seen the thin man and read the book a couple of times so skipping that and theres a copy of heaven can wait around my apt might rewatch on sat if theres time. it certainly is lovely tho``` ive also seen the awful truth but a really long time ago. forsaking all others is probably not gonna happen since its oop

so if anyone has more recs then plz 2 offer all these movies sound excellent

Cukor's Holiday w/ Grant, Hepburn

there was some thread ages ago about parts of movies that fill one with happiness and I wrote something about the scene in Holiday in which all the likable characters are hiding from the rich folks upstairs at the New Year's party.
