It's time for another round of 5 After 5! In case you missed it, last week's list was 5 of the best Broadway shows and if you're new to this series, you can read more about it here.
Today I've got my list of 5 to share, as well as next week's topic for you to stew about over the upcoming days.
And, big news: this fun series is now a link party! Find all the details, following my list!
List your top 5 movies of your favorite actor (or actress)
I had difficulty yet again culling my list to five - despite the fact that I got all sneaky and moved some of my favorite flicks to next week's lineup, just to make things easier on myself.
However, I think I came up with a pretty decent representation for my favorite actor: Cary Grant.
You wouldn't believe how giddy I got when we happened upon the little eatery named FEBO while sauntering through Amsterdam a few years back:
I just knew Audrey Meadows had to be hiding back there behind one of those little doors!
Anyone who has attempted even the smallest home improvement project will find this a hoot.
I'm giggling just thinking about Grant's facial expressions in reaction to finding out about the antics of his crazy aunts.
Directed by Frank Capra, Grant plays Mortimer Brewster (even that name makes me laugh), who is the only sane member of his odd family.
If you haven't seen it, I suggest you Chaaaaaaarge! (you'll get it, after you watch) on over to your tv to hunt it down and view, right quick!
This movie belongs on my all-time favorites list, but I knew I could cheat and stick it here to free up more room a couple of weeks ago when I was struggling to narrow things down.
For a long time, I thought this was a movie done by my favorite director (you'll have to wait to find out who that is), because it has so many twists and turns that it keeps you guessing until the end.
But it's not all suspense and surprise - Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn combine chemistry and comedy to create a movie everyone will enjoy.
And, it turns out, it's directed by Stanley Donen - my second-favorite director - who just so happens to be credited with my all-time favorite movie ever, as well!
For next week:
List your top 5 movies of your favorite director
I had so much trouble narrowing down this week's list until I realized that I could solve some of my problems by moving a couple to my favorite director list - so that's what next week will bring.
Who could my favorite director be? You'll have to wait to find out - I can't wait to hear what yours is and the movies that you choose!
And now, here's the link party! Two other fabulous bloggers have teamed up with me to create lists of five each week and we hope that you'll join us, too!
That's right, every post will be read, pinned and tweeted!
Every Saturday, just stop by one of our three blogs to add your own list of five, then pop over and read as many other posts as you're able to each week - treat it like a true party and really mix it up and mingle with our fun little community!
The rules are simple: just write your own list following the prompt each week (feel free to interpret it loosely - or in a unique way!), follow each of the three hosts on the social media channel of your choice, and then get into the spirit of the party by grabbing your favorite beverage or snack and reading the lists of the other party-goers.
