There’s something really special about old movies. There’s a magic that simply isn’t there anymore. Of course the technology has progressed, which means that the whole process has changed, as well. With the early movies, there’s a raw loveliness that’s so easy to grasp onto and fall in love with.
The stars of those old films are what really made them shine. Without some key figures, old Hollywood would have been something completely different. Cary Grant, for example, is a face that no one could overlook, and a talent that made so many of our favorite movies what they are. For example, this scene in North by Northwest is complete perfection, and it’s largely due to Cary and his costar, Eva Marie Saint.
Another incredible actor from the earlier days of the silver screen? Gene Kelly, of course. You can’t talk about old Hollywood and skip his name. He was a dancer, an actor, a singer, a director, a producer, a choreographer… You name it, he did it.
Believe it or not, he also performed every single one of his stunts on his own.
His athleticism is so incredible, he makes everything he does look so ridiculously easy. This man is a legend, and he really, truly could do it all.
Take a look at these clips and relive the magic for yourself, and please SHARE if you are blown away!
