Movies have always fascinated people the world over. The classic movies of the 50s and 60s have enthralled viewers with their magnificent scenery, great storylines, and sizzling star castings. These movies have never gone out of style or even out of our minds. Movies like ‘Gone with the wind’, ‘Sound of music’, ‘My fair lady’ and ‘Roman Holiday’ all have their own unique charm that has captivated the hearts of millions of viewers the world over. These epic movies have created a permanent place in the hearts and minds of millions of moviegoers.
Watching these all time great movies on DVD is a great way to celebrate holidays or other special occasions. We will be discussing here some of the greatest movies of all time which are available on DVD for home viewing.
One such great “must watch” is the epic movie named ‘Ten Commandments’ based on the biblical story of Moses. This movie is great to watch with the whole family. The character of Moses was portrayed by Charton Heston, which became as immortal as the film itself. The story from the bible is the source of the plot, along with it the backdrop of an era before Christ, where Jewish slaves where inhumanly tortured. Together with the intriguing life of Moses, these things combine to make this movie an all time great.
Another such piece, which comes to mind while talking about the all time great movies on DVD, is the classic musical ‘Sound of music’. This is the story of the VonTrapp family with seven little children who lost their mother very early and were raised by their father captain Georg VonTrapp played by Christopher Plummer. Along comes Maria played by Julie Andrews who serves as a governess for these seven children. The songs in this film herald the musicals of that era. One the most wonderfully shot, picturized and choreographed movies of all time is this one, which we would love to treasure on DVD. It is a great film, which can be watched by every generation and will remain forever young in the minds of generations to come.
A classic movie called ‘My fair lady’ is an all time favorite for most viewers. It is about an uneducated woman who sells flowers. The main character Eliza Dolittle played by none other than beautiful Audrey Hepburn and Professor Henry Higgins played by Rex Harrison. Here Audrey Hepburn plays a clumsy flower girl with thick cockney accent.
Another very nice heart warming romantic movie, which is a good watch on your home DVD is the classic ‘Roman Holiday’. Audrey Hepburn plays Princess Anne who is weary of the strict protocols and anxious to have some fun before she is crowned with the responsibilities of the affairs of the state. Anne escapes her royal retainers in Rome and scampers incognito through the city. She happens to meet American journalist Joe Bradley played by none other than the handsome Gregory Peck, who at once recognizes her as a source of hot news and offers to give her a guided tour of Rome. Both characters fall in love with each other.Write by george t shirts
