VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS
are like works of art to me....
I just love 'em...
Just wish I had an entire room to show them.....
I would have a NEW collection...
*shhhh, don't let MR. SWEET NOTHINGS hear that !!


this one is about everyones FAVORITE....

JAWS scared the very living water right out of me...
and everyone else that saw it.
Bet I've seen it 25 times....just LOVE it...



I was so scared in this one, I bawled like a baby...Mr. Sweet Nothings out of town...
both kids out of the house for the night...
this came on tv and I just HAD to watch it (I love scary movies better than anything!!).
Had to call the little fella across the street, who was a whopping 11, to come over and stay with me until I could finish the movie....told ya I am a big titty baby !!

WELL...PURPLE is a form of BLUE ...
.and this is one of my ALL TIME favorite movies in the whole world !!
Warren Beatty....OH HONEY !
FABULOUS MOVIE !!


to tell the truth...IT'S been so long since I saw this, I don't even remember what it is about...
I was never a BRANDO fan but I sure loved VIVIEN LEIGH.....
especially in her GONE WITH THE WIND role...oh, my!!


i was totally and forever in love with the YOUNG Elvis...
fickle me.....
i wasn't as fond of him in older days....
of course, i am so sorry he got all hooked up with drugs...
they sure did a number on him...bless his heart....


JAMES DEAN....again, not one of my favorites...
BUT....
ROCK HUDSON !!
Gay or not, he made MY heart beat faster !!
and....
LIZ TAYLOR was always a favorite and so SO pretty....

Sorry, folks, but I never could STAND
HUMPHREY BOGART
OR
INGRID BERGMAN



I'm thinking this one may have been MM's best one !



this one isn't really vintage...just a favorite of a lot of us....

SPEAKING of........
MICHAEL J FOX....
my MONDAY HUNK..
bless your heart, Michael...we are all praying for you!

Have a happy BLUE MONDAY....
love, bj

GM BJ, Love your movie posters. I loved James Dean and that movie, I don't even know how many times I saw that one. Even begged my MOM to buy me a red jacket. He started that craze. I was so sad that he died so suddenly in a car crash. And Jaws, girl, I still won't get in the salt water. :) Hope you have a great day.

Love Ya,
Chris

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, I LOVE your movie posters. I have seen them all more than once except the scary ones. I am more that a titty baby, scary movies are not viewed by these eyes. I saw Jaws once and that was enough for me. I also read the book. I also hate movies with snakes in them. I swear, I have nightmares.

I love romantic and feel good or comedy movies the best. You know, sappy happy endings. LOL. I am in the wrong century.

Have a wonderful day BJ.

Love and hugs...Jeanne

bj said...

CLAUDIE from CANADA...I do hope you see this note.
I have tried for several weeks to leave a comment on your blog but it won't let me. Your site freezes every time I try to get on it.
I just wanted you to know that I have tried....
xo bj

Smilingsal said...

This is a good way to recall some oldies. Thanks for showing this collection. Happy Blue Monday!

Bo said...

Morning BJ...You picked some goodies and I'm with you...Humphrey Bogart made me wonder how he could have been a movie star...even his name was awful...Ingrid Bergman, another box office mystery to me too.
Have a wonderful day, ;-) Bo

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, BJ.

I love your idea of posting old movie posters. And, I have actually seen a few of the movies. My husband is the movie buff in our home.

squawmama said...

BJ, I love so many of those movies! Happy Blue Monday to you, lady! And I'm still trying to find out about those pillows. My friend is very sick, and as she's better, maybe we can find out where. Don't give up on me! :-)

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Sheila

Susan said...

I love all those movies. I also loved "In the Mood!" My friend Will played it last night and everyone was dancing! He's a great sax player.
Hugs to you, Susan

Melissa Wertz said...

Love the posters. I still think that gay thing about Rock was just a promotion stunt. No way someone that good looking and sexy was gay. Happy Blue Monday!

DebraK from ~the Bunnies Bungalow~ said...

Your posters brought back memories of some great classics. Bonnie & clyde is a fav of mine & I remember being so scared after seeing Jaws.
Happy New year, DebraK

Stacey said...

Hi BJ! Love your post - you are such a detective to find all of these.

Wanted to let you know that I got the Glenn Miller movie for my dad. We watched it a few days ago and loved it!!

Tara said...

BJ

My fave of all of these is JAWS..I can still watch and cringe ==it's great! My fave scene is when they drink too much and are singing when the shark begins to attack the boat! The best!

PS--thanks for the kind comment on my blog, i appreciate it!

beddow said...

I can't watch scary movies, afraid I just get to scared and they stay with me for days.
Hope all is well for you BJ!

Gabriela said...

Hello,

Casablanca is my favorite movie!
Love the photo of you and kids on the right sidebar, cute!

Happy New Year!

White Iris Designs said...

The posters are great...some real classics there. I love the movies!
Happy New Year!

Kathleen Grace said...

Can you believe I have not seen most of these? I can't watch scarey movies (I am clearly an even bigger titty baby than you are!)never seen Jaws or a streetcar named desire. I love oldies though so I may run out and get that one!

nikkicrumpet said...

Very cool old posters..and they are works of art! And ya gotta just love Michael J Fox. He has always been one of my most favorite actors!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Love, love, love vintage movies! Thanks for the walk down memory lane.

And thanks for telling me about the apron wearing compliments! I love knowing that I was part of your holidays.
Hugs,
Penny

Picket said...

Hey BJ...I love alot of the old movies but I can't watch those scarey ones! lol I loved seeing all the pics of the great Christmas you & your family had girl...Happy New Year to you & yours dear friend....may all your dreams come true!

Andi said...

What wonderful old movie posters BJ! I loved all the old Doris Day and Rock Hudson movies. They don't make them like that anymore.

I think the beaches became less crowded after Jaws came out...yikes!

Happy Monday to you!

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

Great flicks for sure. Not to long ago I rode along the James Dean Memorial highway.
The parking lot scene in Back to the future was shot at a mall that I used to frequent when I was younger. It's about 15mins from here.
I hope you've had a greeat day!

Meggie said...

Thanks for the walk down Memory Lane, BJ! Now I'm sorry I didn't rent a movie for tonight. Guess I'll just have to watch something on a cable channel.

Helen said...

I just loved looking at all the old movie posters ... you know, I never really got into Bogart and Bergman either. Happy New Year, BJ.

Becky said...

Wow! I loved looking at all those movie posters. I've seen most of the movies and loved them! Thanks for the memories.

BTW, I got the FAMILY sign at Hobby Lobby for half price about a month ago. Only paid $15. What a deal!

Happy New Year!

Jackie said...

BJ, nice to see all the old movie posters. I love them.

Hey I love scary movies too! The scarier the better.

God bless.

Elizabeth said...

Those are some great posters, BJ! I think Back to the Future may soon be vintage, although I was in HS/college when those came out! I've seen a lot of those old ones, though!

carolr said...

Great movie pix. Isn't it funny how we each have favorites? Hmmm. I do like Bogart, but not Bacall. I never really liked Elvis although he was a fascinating personality. Loved Rock H. and Doris C. Oh, and I love Judy Garland. Have you ever read the book "Get Happy"? Kind of sad really.

The Muse said...

Greetings BJ...i smiled and smiled at your poetic gift on my blog...now, that is what it is all about FUN :) is it not?

Just like your today's Blue Monday..F~U~N !!!

Claudie said...

Good Evening dear BJ
I just read your note and ahhhh no how come?
That's 2 people today that can't view my blog. I have stripped it down. The only thing left to take away is my music and I just can't seem to do that yet. I"m so sorry. I can view yours thank goodness.
I must share a Michael J Fox story with you. My husband, who is the same age as Mike, were in the same high school in Burnaby, B.C. They both played music and had many jam sessions though out their high school years together. Of course he was just a reg. nice guy and we always followed his success. We had 3 kids and so did they, same ages.
When we see him on T.V. now, it hurts to watch. He looks like a very determined man and so mature for his age. We still think of him on Family Ties and Back to the Future. We just couldn't believe his news.
Ok gotta catch up on the other blue posts.
Hugs from Canada claudie@frid.com

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

It scares me to death to watch scary movies ! I like your new blog dress.

Susie Q said...

I adore the posters. I too love the grahics on them and the fun memories they represent. I have a bunch that i always planned to showcase but that will never happen! I am willing toi send you a few of those if any are toyor liking...(Not my Brian ones tho'!! Those are MINE!!!)
I have several that I will never get around to framing and love but would be tickled to pass them on to someone if they would love the too.

I can send you names if you would like??

Love,
Sue

laurie said...

Great movie posters! I'm more of a baby than you. I cannot watch scary movies AT ALL! I could barely get into a bathtub after I saw Jaws! I cannot believe you would watch a scary movie when you were home alone. In my book, that makes you a big girl! laurie
