I love the list of underappreciated comedies Laura, of Laura's Miscellaneous Musings, shared here. With all the movies she watches, I've often wondered which flicks she likes best--Rupert Pupkin Speaks

Thanks so much for sharing my list, KC! They're a fun group of movies I wish were better known. :)

It's hard to say what I like best -- MGM musicals and Julie Andrews were what originally hooked me on movies, but I love Westerns, film noir, "B" movies...however, on certain days, I would probably say that romantic comedies of the late '30s and '40s are my favorites!

Best wishes,
Laura

You're definitely helping to spread the word about those movies Laura! I will probably be bugging you for more favorites one of these days. I'm with you on the romantic comedies from the '30s/'40s. No matter what else I am obsessed with at the moment, those movies always satisfy.

I'm always delighted to share ideas. :) Just rewatched LOVE BEFORE BREAKFAST for the first time in 6 years - Carole Lombard and Preston Foster, supported by Cesar Romero. My kinda movie! That type of film always makes me feel good.

Best wishes,
Laura

I know that one because of the poster! The one where Lombard has a black eye. It always made me wary of the film, but now I'm curious.

Laura said...

The poster seems to imply the black eye has a relationship with her love life, but it's OK, it happens during a brawl in a nightclub. :)

Best wishes,
Laura

That's good to know :-) Especially since I know Carole would hold her own in a nightclub brawl.
