No matter how caught up we get in today’s society with our fancy editing and our real life animation, we still love to go back to the retro roots of the cinema, where some of the best acting and story lines known to date took place. We love the creativity, the voices, the costumes, the settings, and the whole enchilada. Not to mention, we thoroughly enjoy just looking at how glamorous each actor looked. They were all so beautiful and so handsome and we can’t help but stare! Here are our top 10 retro movies that will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
A classic and not to mention Hugh Hefner’s favorite (because we all needed his approval for our list), Casablanca is a classic that we just love. The acting is superb, the costumes are to die for, the scenery is breath- taking; it is just a gorgeous movie as a whole.
9) Love is a Many-Splendored Thing
Set in China, the setting is absolutely gorgeous; especially the beach scene. There is something so raw and so elegant about this love story. The softness of the romance balances quite nicely with the harsh reality of what was currently happening in the world during that film. The two leads work so well together and it is definitely one for the books.
