I used to want nothing to do with old "classic" Hollywood movies, especially musicals. If it came from the 40s, 50s, or 60s I just refused. But I ended up seeing some (I can't remember how, but it was because of my housemate who likes them) and that broke the ice a little. I've seen a lot of old movies now, and while I can't exactly say they're all great, and I still think the acting in many leaves a lot to be desired, when I think of them like stage plays adapted for the silver screen I kinda like the stories and writing a lot of them have.
