Rules: tag six movies you can watch at anytime and tag five people.

Hmm, this definitely took a bit of consideration. For those of you that don’t know, I am a movie buff! I adore film, especially vintage ones!

1. Casablanca, 1942

Probably my favourite movie of all time and easily one of the greatest films ever made. Storytelling at it’s finest, there’s intrigue, humour, drama, and of course, romance. If you haven’t seen this film yet then you should definitely consider checking it out.

2. Jaws, 1977

Absolutely love this film! No matter how many times I watch it, I get sucked in every single time. Spielberg is truly gifted at what he does and all of his film inspire me so much.

3. Some Like It Hot, 1959

Truly one of the funniest films ever! The writing is absolutely brilliant and it contains some surprising undertones and double entendres for the 1950s.

4. Footlight Parade, 1933

Fabulous film from the early 1930s aka the ‘precode’ era. Witty, wacky, fast paced musical starring James Cagney (one of my faves ). Love this film.

5. American Grafitti, 1973

Poignant, wonderful film! I adore everything about it from the 1950s theme to the fascinating characters.

6. The Wizard of Oz, 1939

I watch this film practically anytime it’s on. Whimsical, colourful, fun with Dorothy, Toto, and friends. What’s not to love?! Fun fact: 1939 is considered to be the pinnacle year of films. More legendary films were produced that year than any other.

On this day in music history: October 22, 1974 - “Hotter Than Hell”, the second album by KISS is released. Produced by Kenny Kerner and Richie Wise, it is recorded at The Village Recorder in West Los Angeles, CA in August 1974. Just six months after releasing their self-titled debut album,  KISS relocates to Los Angeles to record the follow up to their debut with producers Kenny Kerner and Richie Wise. Though the band power through the sessions in a few short weeks, they do not find L.A. to their liking, with Paul Stanley having his guitar stolen on the first day in town. They are also unhappy with the dark and murky sound of the albums’ final mix. “Hotter Than Hell” will yield several songs that become staples of the band’s live act including “Got To Choose”, “Parasite” and “Goin’ Blind”, though initially it sells poorly due to it being released as Casablanca’s distribution deal with Warner Bros is ending. The album’s memorable and striking cover photo is taken by legendary photographer Norman Seeff (Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, The Jacksons), and designed graphic artist John Van Hamersveld (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead). The album is remastered and reissued on CD in 1997, with it being reissued on vinyl in 2014. “Hottter Than Hell” peaks at number one hundred on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Gold by the RIAA.

“It’s about a girl who had just come to Paris from her home in Oslo. At the house of some friends, she met a man about whom she’d heard her whole life. A very great and courageous man. He opened up for her a whole beautiful world full of knowledge and thoughts and ideals. Everything she knew or ever became was because of him. And she looked up to him and worshiped him… with a feeling she supposed was love.”

Casablanca, dir. Michael Curtiz
