When you read the phrase "Classic Movies", what comes to mind?
No right or wrong answer here, just curious.
There can be a couple of interpretations. For example, I think of "Gone with the Wind", "Casablanca", and "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly", just to name a few.
This could be because when I think of classic books, I think of books like Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Great Expectations, and Crime and Punishment. Other classics may be books I happen to enjoy extremely well, but not necessarily "classic" in the strictest sense of the word (which is defined as of the first or highest quality).
Why am I babbling about all this, you wonder?
Well, I got to thinking this weekend as I was watching "Gone with the Wind", do people my age watch movies like this? Are we supposed to enjoy "old" movies? I mean, they're only about 70 years old. We read books older than that all the time, although not everyone enjoys doing so.
Basically, my main question is this: Will future generations watch "Gone with the Wind"?
Maybe my grandchildren will just wait until it's remade. Or maybe they'll have some strange technology that lets them watch movies on the inside of their eyelids. I have no idea.
