"The Man Who Came to Dinner" 1942

Quite a lot of silly fun. Very silly. Jimmy Durante gets the best line - qutie a way to sweep a woman off her feet - "Come to my room in a half hour... and bring some rye bread."

"Play Misty for Me" 1971

Clint Eastwood does a nice job directing and acting in this early version of the bunny-boiler plot. Gotta say I like him a lot better in something like this than as an action hero - I never thought much of Dirty Harry or the spaghetti westerns.
Considering this movie is almost fifty years old, it's not too badly dated.

"Midnight in Paris" 2011

This is a gorgeous movie - it's beautiful to look at, it's fun and thoughtful and it's full of great performances. Owen Wilson channels Woody Allen to the extent that it seems jarring at first, but later he really does just inhabit the character.

Nostalgia is of course one of Allen's great themes, and this film looks at it from a slightly different angle.
