Wallace and Gromit

Wallace and Gromit is a British clay animation comedy series created by Nick Park of Aardman Animations. The series consists of four short films and a feature-length film. The series centres on Wallace, a good-natured, eccentric, cheese-loving inventor, along with his companion Gromit, a silent yet loyal and intelligent anthropomorphic dog. Wallace was originally voiced by veteran actor Peter Sallis, but as of 2011, this role has been passed on to Ben Whitehead. Gromit has no mouth and remains silent, communicating only through means of facial expressions and body language.

Lady Says No, The (1952)

The Lady Says No (1952) is a hoot. It’s a romantic comedy starring David Niven and Joan Caulfied. She’s a writer that writes a man hating book, he’s a photographer that wants to prove her all wrong. I thought it was pretty funny.

Drama

Matter of Life and Death, A (1946)

If you haven’t, you should watch A Matter of Life and Death. It was released in the US under the title of Stairway to Heaven. It’s a charming story about a pilot who dies after being shot down in a plane and whether love can save him. It’s got David Niven and a very cute Kim Hunter. This is a charming story. One interesting thing is that like the Wizard of Oz, it’s shot in color and black and white, but the scenes on Earth are in color and heaven is in black and white.
