Must-Watch Vintage Movies

Bonjour, beautiful painters, and welcome, welcome! This lovely Tuesday, enchanted by the ever approaching Autumn, I decided to guide us all on a little throwback – you know, to the 40’s and 50’s, that is 😉 I love the vintage atmosphere those decades have left in what they have produced, particularly when it comes to movies. It’s a whole new level of elegance and class, in my opinion – and I hope this list helps you share that opinion as well!

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

This one is a sweet Christmas movie, all about family and how much your life can influence others. There’s a beautiful love story, sweet little kids, some good comedy and, above all, angels! Save it for Christmas or watch it now to help you get in that holiday spirit a few months ahead 😉

Casablanca (1942)

Casablanca is just a classic like no other – such that your movie culture cannot be complete without watching it! Names like Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman simply cannot be ignored if your “movie talk” is going to be taken seriously. Romance and politics intertwine dramatically in one of the best motion pictures of the history of cinema. And after you’re done with it, dear painter… “we’ll always have Paris”!

Gone with the Wind (1939)

The longest movie I have ever watched is awaiting you, beloved painter! Now, don’t let those awe-inspiring 238 minutes of runtime turn you away from another imposing classic! Even more torrid than the one before, the love affair between Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara is one to remember. So go get acquainted with it – maybe in a two session screening, though.

Roman Holiday (1953)

Previous to the world-renowned Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Roman Holiday is a lighter, more comedic classic in which you can watch and drool over Audrey Hepburn’s endless sophistication. I mean, she’s literally a princess in this one – and not only that, she is a princess strolling through Rome! What more could you ask from a vintage movie?

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946)

I decided to take a full turn and end with another 1946 premiere – but this time, in a completely opposite tone. This vintage film is sure to leave you creeped out and with an eerie feeling, all while showing you yet another unique love affair. I definitely think the vintage atmosphere and the black and white scale make for an even more thrilling drama. So if murder is more your thing than romantic catch-phrases and you don’t mind creepy thunderstorms, this should definitely be the vintage movie of your choosing.

Do you have any other recommendations for the list? What would you add? Tell us what you thought about this list in the comment section!
