Erstwilder Movie Night



Hey there lovelies, we do hope you’re enjoying the Hollywood glamour range, we certainly loved designing it!

In fact, we loved it so much that it got us thinking, if the Erstwilder team were to put on our own movie night, what classic films would we screen?

Here are our picks for a classic movie night, we’d love to hear what Hollywood classics you would show at your very own movie night, leave us a comment below!

 

The Sound of Music
Kelly's pick

My favourite movie is The Sound of Music because… Julie Andrews ❤ Need I say more? Of course, the music is amazing, and the scenery is spectacular, but I just love the fact that it’s a brilliantly executed classic Hollywood love story. It’s one of those movies it’s impossible not to smile at.

 

Duck Soup
James' pick

I’ve got sooo many favourites from this era, but I do like a good laugh, so I’ve gone waaay back and chosen what I think is still the funniest movie of all time. There must be a quality gag every minute in this ageless Marx Brothers romp with the mirror scene being one of the best things ever committed to celluloid. “Now I aska you one. What is it has a trunk, but no key, weighs 2,000 pounds and lives in the circus?”

 

Some Like it Hot
Marc's pick
My favourite film from Hollywood’s Golden Age is the classic screwball comedy Some Like it Hot. It’s just one of those films where something is exciting every moment, with the plot taking the characters in unexpected directions. I don’t know who I was more impressed with, Tony Curtis and is effortlessly suave Cary Grant impression or the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe displaying her considerable comedic chops.

 


Brazil
Elena's pick

My favourite movie of all time is Brazil - a dark satiric film set in the dystopian near future, directed by Terry Gilliam of Monty Python fame.  I tend to re-watch it when I am convalescing on the couch after a bout of the dreaded lurgy.

 

West Side Story
Adam's pick
WEST SIDE STORY! Best classic movie ever!

 

Lassie
Carmen's pick
I have a special spot for all the Lassie films because my grandpa and I used to watch them on repeats when I was a kid. Many afternoons were spent discussing all the adventures Lassie would have and thinking up 'what would Lassie do' scenarios. Lassie Come Home is probably the best place to start but they’re all classics.

 

The Birds
Jess' pick

The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock is's an incredibly moody and suspenseful film. The first time I watched it my mind was blown having rarely seen classic films before. There was never a clear reason why the birds turned so dangerous. I loved it so much - and I was in awe that a director, actors etc. could play with the audience like that! And there is even a sneaky Erstwilder connection with a very nice bird brooch appearing in an early scene.

 

Madame X
Natalie's pick
My favourite classic film would have to be Madame X. This was my mum’s favourite movie growing up, so I have a sentimental attachment to it because of that. It’s also just a great drama/thriller with the amazing Lana Turner, so I highly recommend.

 

Casablanca
Sally's pick
It has to be Casablanca. I waited far too long to see this movie, and I fell in love the moment I saw it. If you haven’t seen it yet what are you waiting for?! It’s about love, as so many great movies are, but… well I don’t want to spoil it if ou haven’t seen it yet. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled for Ingrid Bergman’s beautiful sparkling brooch when she walks into the bar.
“Play it once Sam, for old time's sake.”
