North and South
Kind of Pride & Prejudice-y. Two fantastic leading male characters and a superb heroine.
Lorna Doone - very Robin Hood Prince of Theives.
The House of Elliot (British tv series) - set in England in the 1920s, two very deprived and sheltered sisters loose their domineering father and set out to become fashion designers.
Holiday- a fantastic Cary Grant/ Katherine Hepburn romantic comedy. Great dialogue. I'd never heard of this one.
Alice Adams- my favorite Katherine Hepburn show.
Arrested Development (American tv series) - only lasted three seasons, but every episode had me laughing outloud. All about an extremely disfunctional family.
The Dutchess of Duke Street (British tv series) - follows a woman from scullery maid to chef to king's consort to hotel owner to caterer.
They Call Me Trinity - slapstick Western.
Strangers on a Train- an Alfred Hitchcock gem.
The Lady Vanishes - older Hitchcock gem. Don't let the terrible model set at the beginning keep you from continuing on.
Daniel Deronda - a love triangle and a secret past. Brought to you by Masterpiece Theatre.
House on Haunted Hill - perfect for Halloween. A Vincent Price original. You'll laugh at the cheesy effects.
Born Yesterday (1950) - Gotta love William Holden. He's hired to educate and polish a ditzy blonde who proves her metal.
Miss Marple Mysteries: A Murder is Announced - possibly my favorite film of the series. You will suspect every character!
Lady Jane - see Wesley from Princess Bride in another great princely role.
