Old-Timey Movies Give Me the Warm & Fuzzies

I love movies about ‘coming of age’ (such a cringe-making saying) in the olden days… when life was simple. I often feel bad for kids growing up in this modern age, not even knowing how great life was to ride your bike around and swing from a rope into a lake. At least they’re still making movies about the simpler days.

ps. Rope-swinging is MUCH harder than it looks. I tried it once but was/still am unforgivably uncoordinated. I almost drowned.

FLIPPED

Film by Rob Reiner in theatres now. Looks SO CUTE!!!

These are my favorites old-timey movies. I get goosebumps just watching these videos. (Oh, and a few tingly eyed moments… I know! Total dork.)

1. STAND BY ME

Jerry O’Connell was a little butterball before he was a beef cake!!

Little Reese Witherspoon… OMG she was a cute kid, too!!!

4. INVENTING THE ABBOTTS

LOVE IT when Joaquin Phoenix is painting on his side burns!!
