Peek A Boo Tuesdays "Showtime"

Welcome to Peek A Boo Tuesday hosted
by "A Cowgirls Grace"

Today I am sharing a few of my favorite movies!
Grab some popcorn, a box of tissues, find a seat, and enjoy!

It's SHOWTIME!!!


1990

Lt John Dunbar is dubbed a hero after he accidentally
leads union troops to a victory during the Civil War.

He requests a position on the western frontier,
but finds it deserted. He soon finds out he is not alone.

Dunbar quickly makes friends with the tribe and
discovers a white woman who was raised by Indians.

He meets a wolf he dubs "Two Socks."
He eventually is accepted into the local Sioux tribe
and is known as "Dances With Wolves."


He is enanoured by the beautiful "Stands With A Fist."

Soon after, the frontier becomes no more,
and as the army advances on the plains,
John must make a decision that will not only affect him,
but also the lives of the natives
he now calls His people.






1996
The moving story of a Hungarian mapmaker and
his dying memories of the romance that
tragically alters his life.
Burned horribly in a fiery plane crash while seeking
answers for a crime from his past.



1998

An Angel must decide if love is more important
than eternal peace.
Seth is an Angel who hovers over the
city of Los Angles, listening to peoples thoughts,
observing their lives, and guiding them to the next
world as they die.
While at a hospital, Seth sees Maggie, a dedicated heart surgeon
who attempts to save the life of a patient Seth
was to call upon.
He finds himself falling in love with her, and decides
to make himself visible so he can communicate with her.


1998

Its a cold winter night.
Grace and her best friend Judith go for a ride with their horses,
but a terrible accident changes her life forever.
A truck hits them.
Judith and her horse are killed,
while Grace and her horse Pilgrim are seriously injured,
both physically and mentally.


In an attempt to bring Pilgrim back from his now savage condition,
Grace's mother Annie takes them to Montana in search
for Tom Booker.
Tom is a "horse whisperer", a cowboy
with the ability to "communicate" with horses.


The cowboy slowly heals the Souls of Pilgrim and Grace.





1933

When a nasty neighbor tries to take Dorothy's dog Toto
away from her, she decides to run away.
A cyclone appears and carries her to the
magical land of oz.
Wishing to return, she begins to travel to the Emerald City.

Here she makes some memorable friends and foes
in her journey to meet the
"Wizard of Oz."
On her way she meets a scarecrow who needs a brain,
the tin man who wants a heart,
and a cowardly lion who desperately needs courage.


They were helped along the way by the Good Witch of the North,
but she's also in trouble with the Wicked Witch of the West,
who seeks revenge for the death of her Sister,
The Wicked Witch of the East,
which she blames Dorothy.



1939

The epic tale of a woman's life during one of the most
tumultuous periods in America's history.
From her young, innocent day on a beautiful plantation
her beloved "TARA"
to the war-torn streets of Atlanta.
"Scarlett O'Hara"

From her first love whom she always desired
to her three husbands;
from the utmost luxury to absolute starvation
and poverty;
from her innocence to her understanding
and comprehension of life.



1940

with her stuffy employer, meets
the wealthy Maxim De Winter.

Rebecca, in a boating accident the year before.

The second Mrs. De Winter clashes with the housekeeper,
Mrs. Danvers, and discovers Rebecca still has a strange
hold on everyone at "Manderlay."
2001

The year is 1899, and Christian,
a young English, has come to Paris to follow
the Bohemian revolution taking hold of the city's
drug and prostitute infested underworld.
And nowhere is the thrill of the underworld more
alive that at the Moulin Rouge, a night club where
the rich and poor men alike come to be entertained by
the dancers, but they take a wicked turn for
Christian as he starts a deadly love affair with
the star contessa of the club, Satine.

But her affections are also coveted by the club's patron,
The Duke.
A dangerous love triangle ensures as Satine and Christian
attempt to fight all odds to stay together,
but a force that not love can conquer is
taking it's toll on Satine.

I LOVE these movies.

I aso love old black and white movies!
Hope you enjoyed the show!

I too have seen all of these movies more than 10 times each! Not all of them are on my top 10 though...those I see once a year...or more!!! Hee Hee!

Leah Fry said...

There's some good ones in there. Mr. Fry and I also like old BW movies.

Cheryl Ann said...

Oh, I LOVE Dances with Wolves, the Horse Whisperer, and Moulin Rouge! You've made me nostalgic! Good choices!

Sydney said...

Moulin rouge is like my favorite movie ever. I want to watch it now.

fernvalley01 said...

Great choices! I haven't seen all of them , but I think I will check out the ones I missed

Pony Girl said...

Those are all good movies. I have only seen the English Patient once. Might have to borrow that one from you! I love the Horse Whisperer, I watch that once a year, usually. I remember the first time I saw Rebecca with you and dad. I think it was the first time I really "got" old black and white movies.

wilsonc said...

Many of my favorite movies as well. Haven't seen Rebecca. Need to check that one out.

Autumn Mist said...

I love Dances With Wolves (and adore Kevin Costner!) and The Horse Whisperer. The accident in the beginning always makes me gasp with shock, I don't know why.

cowgirljlynn said...

I love English Patient and Gone with the Wind. Also love Out of Africa and Legends of the Fall!!Might have to have a movie night this next weeekend!!

Sares said...

I can see you like a little drama in your movies! The first few were horribly depressing Auntie! I tend to prefer a happy ending, except for Gone With The Wind, personally I thought Scarlett deserved to lose Rhett! She gets him back though, have you ever read the book or see the movie Scarlett? It's pretty good too. I just saw Rebecca on the old movie channel last month~great movie!

Paint Girl said...

I love The Horse Whisperer!! One of my all time favorite movies! I haven't seen The English Patient or Moulin Rouge, I am way behind on movies, can you tell?

Nezzy said...

Great movie list. This Ozarks farm chick doesn't get off the Ponderosa often but when we do Hubby and I love a good movie! I had to watch the English Patient twice before I really 'got it.'

Have just a wonderfully blessed day, ya'll!!! :o)

Julie said...

Oh Lord...I think I OWN all of these movies...

Good picks..each one of your choices are on my top favorite list and i have loved watching more than once. Nothing better than a good romantic movie with a few horses thrown in, is there? I've recently just added Australia to my list ...have you seen it?

Thanks for stopping by and wishing TW a happy b-day..she so deserves it.

cdncowgirl said...

I've seen most of those movies, couldn't quite get into Moulin Roughe though.
And Wizard of Oz... may sound silly but it gives me nightmares!

Fabulous favorites!

Dances with Wolves is the only movie I've watched more than 10 times! I met the writer of the story, Michael Blake, here in Albuquerque years ago. He spent countless years knocking on many doors trying to convince movie producers to make his book into a movie. But he was always turned away....until he met Kevin Costner.
Michael Blake did a seminar at UNM and I couldn't get enough of him. One very facinating man!
And I like Kevin Costner, too. He's a man not afraid to tke risks. A true visionary!

I like Wizard of Oz, too. And I love old black and white flicks especially musicals! I've watched My Fair Lady, with Audrey Hepburn almost as many times as I've watched Dances with Wolves.

I always get up and 'try' to dance when she sings, "I could have danced all night!"

lol!
