Film Classic Friday Link-Up 11.18.11

Yay, your here to link up and celebrate true theatrical talent! You know what I mean...back in the day where there were hardly any special effects, the backdrops were hand painted instead of digital and the talent was really talent...they did their own singing and dancing! We did not have cable...except for the TCM (Turner Classic Movies) marathons which my mother watched and planned for. Then, those were serious movie recording weekends!

As my mother and grandmother loved music, it was only natural that we gravitated toward the musicals and of course comedies. My family loved to laugh! There are so many great lines that I can remember us all laughing uncontrollably over. These were great and wonderful memories and I would love to relive them with you!

Irving Berlin is not an actor, a director or a producer...but the movies, White Christmas, Easter Parade, Top Hat, Holiday Inn, and Annie Get Your Gun would not be what they are today if not for his songs.  Irving Berlin is one of the most memorable film composers of his time.  Some of the biggest names of their day made his music famous with the American people such as Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Doris Day and Ella Fitzgerald to name just a few.  Have you seen these classics and do you remember the music from them as if it were yesterday?

Would you like to join in the fun? By all means! Just link up your post, it will be open all week! If you would like, you can take the button with you so that others can join in the fun as well.

See you here next week as we celebrate actors, actresses, directors, producers and classic film titles that start with the letter, "J!"
