Memories in Technicolor

I love watching these old films. As a child we had this enormous Philips Colour Television made in Sweden.

We watched films like Doctor Zhivago, The Sound of Music, Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines, To Sir, With Love and all kinds of other lovely films that are now Classics.

That wonderful colour television is now long gone but I can still remember sitting there and watching it and if I close my eyes I can still smell the hot, orange glowing, dusty vacuum tubes in the back.

Last night I was watching Those Daring Young Men In Their Jaunty Jalopies (1969). It is at the least equally good as it’s predecessor Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines (1965). In both films Eric Sykes plays a brilliant role and they are actually films with a good story, unlike those films they make nowadays which seem to go about the special effects only and not the plot or the people.

Technicolor colours never fade when they are turned into memories don’t you think? I would like to know, what is your favourite Classic Film and your favourite actor or actress? Are your memories in Technicolor too?
