    You have my vote on the old movies I just love them, do not care if they are still black and white movies. I have always liked John Wayne, Stewart Granger, James Stewart, and Randolph Scott, Charlton Heston, Audie Murphy,Robert Fuller, Peter Brown, just to name a few. For actressess there was Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Stanwyck, Bette Davis, Doris Day, again just to name a few. Some of them are long gone now and will be sadly missed but some of the names above are still with us. For a favourite film, any western is my favourite, as long as there is a cowboy, a horse and a good story I will watch it. In fact I will watch most movies as I said I just love them. They really do not make movies like the Hollywood golden era, the odd one might be released but not many will be greats. I also like the epics such as Ben Hur, El Cid, The Ten Commandments etc.
