Gregory Peck Interview, 1989

I love this brief clip of a 1989 interview with Gregory Peck. He always exuded class and decency.

Classic Movie Alphabet

I've been wanting to do my own classic movie alphabet ever since I saw the idea for the first time at Rupert Pupkin Speaks (he actually gave it two tries). As some of you know, I'm not fond of picking favorites, so I thought I'd try something different with my list. I keep track of all of the movies I see, so this list is a compilation of some of the movies that made a memorable impression on me over the past few years (yes, Xanadu made an impression on me, because I realized how many bad-good movies were going to be on Instant Play when that title popped up).

If you do your own alphabet, or have already posted one, I'd love it if you'd post the link in the comments!
