Helen at http://saveeverystep.wordpress.com/lifes-a-journey-series/ urges us to share our memories from milestones in our life. This week's theme - Movies
Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" was apparently the first film I was taken to, though my memories of it are very vague.
A bit strange, as musicals are amongst my favourite films. My first "grown up" film was on a friend's birthday to see "The Student Prince" , later followed by South Pacific, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Oklahoma and Carousel. I had aspirations to be a chorus girl, dancing and swishing my skirts! [The nearest I came to it was as a student taking part in Gilbert and Sullivan operettas].
My tastes haven't changed much over the years, with fond memories of:
- Musicals (Sound of Music, Oliver, Grease, Mama Mia, Phantom of the Opera, and even the Rocky Horror Show).
- Classics - Gone with the Wind, Doctor Zhivago, O What a Lovely War, Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre.
- Chick Lit - Love Story (more hankies out), Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones Diary, Love Actually.
