@boomforreal I love the faux Hitchcock of Charade. I think it's a great film because of the script and its actors.
@thanks_maybe Perhaps it was because I was probably 13-14 when I saw it, but I was haunted by seeing Penny Serenade on a late late show. I did think the Japanese scenes were kind of fake looking, but I really "felt" the emotion of the movie. Maybe it's not a great movie by today's standards, but I always see a movie in context if there is something "ridiculous" in it. I was still three years away from seeing Citizen Kane, which blew my mind, but sometimes pure heart string tugging isn't such a bad thing.
