At Classic Movies Etc. we have dedicated ourselves to finding and resurrecting these films, putting them to DVD and making them available to like minded film buffs around the world. As the films we are offering are not in commercial distribution or are in the public domain it is therefore legitimate to make them available to like minded collectors. We endeavour to find the best quality print available at all times. However, depending on the source, some imperfections do occur.
This is an oft repeated exclamation of a generation that was privileged to live through the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s when Hollywood had what is called the “Studio System” that produced the great stars, directors and scriptwriters – and the films which defined an era that can never be reproduced. This was a golden era that included British and European film making as well. The Americans with the great musicals, the British with their comedies and the Europeans with raw edge dramas.
From sweeping romantic sagas to unforgettable adventures like Lawrence of Arabia, some movies were just made for the big screen. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them at home, too. These memorable titles have defined eras of filmmaking and inspired many movie lovers (and movie makers). And who knows? Some might even lead to some great family discussions.
