    I just love old movies! Far better plots, far less un-needed sex and foul language ... and I get a kick out of the old cars, clothing, and even the interior decorating and furnishings.

    Also love to watch old Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall ... Spencer Tracy & Katherine Hepburn movies.

    I love the brightness of the colors in older movies-Vista Vision, I guess. I think of movies like Summertime, To Catch A Thief (my favorite Hitchcock film), The African Queen, Breakfast At Tiffany's, and so on, and then compare to the darker lighting used in today's movies. It's just not the same. No wonder why people have so many mood disorders.

    The dog's name was Asta, and it was WILLIAM Powell.

    My own favorite exchange of theirs is at 2:10 in that video.

    There's also a cute scene where Nick, a heavy drinker, downs a drink in a real dive and exclaims, "Ahhhhhh, Scotch!..... Probably."
