We love old movies.
It didn’t happen overnight, it’s kind of a life-time love affair. The love of art takes many shapes and forms. But the love of old movies is a singular expression of art that is both active and interactive.
Active in the sense that it is dynamic – not static. Interactive in the sense that it enables the viewer to be a participant emotionally and psychologically. The color or use of light, the movement, the music, the drama and the cinematography are vivid and demanding.
There is a caveat to the last statement. It assumes we are talking about a well made film.
Why We Buy Old Movies
We buy old movies because in many ways these films are synonymous with quality. That quality is a common theme that runs through the values, the culture and the decency of the messages of these movies – as well as the level of acting skill, production and camera work.
There was less dependence on technology and a greater focus using simpler tools more effectively because there was less technology.
Consistently we see an elegance in the characters, visiting a bygone day of self respect, self reliance, and integrity. Character itself is an integral component of the social fabric throughout the entire genre, in a general sense.
Overall, the more we re-watch and review these great old films, the more we see simple goodness, virtues that count and a concept of trust that is rare in today’s society.
As a norm, there is subtlety versus blatant expression, tough love instead of violence, kindness instead of deception.
The underlying message often includes a lesson stemming from a moral dilemma and a choice between right and wrong. There is always something to stand for in contrast to being against everything. There is also a common thread reminding stand up for those things that we believe in.
Opportunity To Teach Kids
We believe that there is still a great opportunity for the elder generation to instill many of these principles and concepts into the minds of our younger generation. This can be accomplished through sharing these films on a regular basis as a family entertainment experience – followed by a family discussion.
Often times, when my middle daughter was 3 years old, it was a joyful experience watching a Laurel and Hardy movie on cable together. Kids get it. It’s a great way to teach and have fun and it beats the heck out of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
