Do you remember seeing your first classic film and how it effected your perspective as an audience member? I do. It was The Marx Brother’s “Day at the Races,” and it still remains to be one of my favorite comedies.
So why are classic films so very important? They do not just express well-written stories and powerful performances. Classic films are part of our heritage. They help us to discover who we are, individually and collectively. They preserve history. They reveal the human condition. Sometimes, they bring us face to face with ourselves. Even more so, a classic film can be like a good friend you can always count on to be there for you. When you are not having the best day and you need a good laugh, The Marx Bros. can surely bring you out of your doldrums. When you need a change of scenery, “Summertime” can easily whisk you away to Venice for the afternoon. It’s your 123rd time watching “The Wizard of Oz,” and you still cannot figure out why Dorothy’s pigtails change length from scene to scene.
