My Favorite…Childhood Movie My Favorite Feb 282018 Hosted @ Maureen’s Books I can’t name just one. When I was a child, I had two favorite movies that were on once a year. And I couldn’t wait from the time I saw them for them to come back on again. Wizard Of Oz Cinderella 24 Responses to “My Favorite…Childhood Movie” Nan says: February 28, 2018 at 12:23 PM You won’t believe it, because I barely can – but my favorite movie from childhood was Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo! There used to be a nightly movie around 6 pm on a local station, and if my father wasn’t home from work, I could watch it while eating on a TV tray. That’s where I saw this movie. I bet I’ve watched it 10 times, and I remember whole sequences and lines! “Hey, honey, how come you’re so cute?” “I had to be to get me such a good-lookin’ fella.” Those may not be word for word, but close enough. Phyllis Thaxter and Van Johnson. Based on the Jimmy Doolittle story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty_Seconds_Over_Tokyo And I am still afraid of The WIzard of Oz! Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:23 PM I’ve never seen Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo but now I want to. I love WOO and never thought it was scary. Reply Ti says: February 28, 2018 at 12:36 PM I have a special place in my heart for Oz because my kids have done the play many, many times but I think the movie is terrifying!! Those monkeys, the Winkies or whatever they are called. Oh, and even the Munchkins freak me out. Yes, they do. My fave movie from childhood is probably Pippi Longstalking! Reply Kay says: February 28, 2018 at 1:21 PM I used to love The Wizard of Oz, but I think it often was shown on Sunday night and we went to church on Sunday night. No exceptions. Made me sad to miss it or only get to watch a little bit of it. I also loved The Sound of Music. Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:24 PM I don’t remember what day it was on in Ohio but don’t think it was Sunday. I’ve never watched TSOM all the way through. Just a few seconds here and there, I need to correct that. Reply Shannon says: February 28, 2018 at 2:27 PM Love the Wizard of Oz! Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:25 PM Yea! Reply bermudaonion (Kathy) says: February 28, 2018 at 4:10 PM I’ve never seen The Wizard of Oz from the beginning to the end – it always scared me as a child. I think my favorite movie was Mary Poppins. Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:25 PM Wow, another movie I’ve never seen all the way through. TWOO didn’t scare me. Reply somewhereinireland says: February 28, 2018 at 5:54 PM Wow, I also loved, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo. The Bridge on the River Kwai was another one and my all-time favorite was Swiss Family Robinson. I saw SFR in the movie theater with a friend and after it was over, we decided to stay and watch it a second time. 🙂 Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:27 PM I’ve never seen Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, but have seen bits and pieces of TBOTRK and Swiss Family Robinson. Reply Suko says: February 28, 2018 at 7:01 PM I loved The Wizard of Oz as a child, and still do. My friends and I learned how to speak “Munchkin”. 🙂 Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:27 PM That’s funny! Is it weird that I still love watching it? Reply Yvonne says: February 28, 2018 at 8:06 PM I always loved these two movies. Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:28 PM They’re so good, aren’t they? Reply mae says: March 1, 2018 at 8:56 AM Cinderella is an amazingly beautiful movie. I love the silhouette of the magic coach and horses. The songs are good, too. But I have a soft spot for Alice in Wonderland too. I remember going to see it at one of those movie palaces with gold all over the lobby. best… mae at maefood.blogspot.com Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:29 PM How have I never watched so many of these favorite movies? Reply Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library says: March 1, 2018 at 9:04 AM I love Cinderella! When I was little we had a recording of the Rogers and Hammerstein musical with Leslie Anne Warren and I watched it constantly. I still know most of the lyrics to most of the songs by heart! Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:31 PM They still have Wizard Of Oz on once in awhile but I haven’t seen Cinderella in a long time. I loved hearing/reading and can still recite “Twas The Night Before Christmas”. Reply Charlie says: March 1, 2018 at 10:18 PM I liked Cinderella, but Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid captured my attention more. I also liked some of the WB movies that were never real big. Reply Vicki says: March 2, 2018 at 6:32 PM I’m too old for those to be a favorite from my childhood. Reply Maureen Bakker says: March 3, 2018 at 1:50 PM Ow Cinderella.. I love that movie. Thanks for signing up and sharing your favorite. Reply Chrissy says: March 4, 2018 at 8:51 AM I love The Wizard of Oz. I remember when it would come on once a year and I’d get to stay up to watch it.
