Now that I’ve taken early Social Security I have time to indulge one of my passions: watching old movies. I have an old color television set, one with a built-in tape players. I also have a Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh card which allows me to take out tapes for free.
Last night I watched “Cabaret” with Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey. I was transported back to the Kit Kat Klub in Berlin in 1931 to hear Liza as Sally Bowles belt out “Cabaret” against the backdrop of the rise of the Nazi Party.
I also watched “Morocco” with Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich. It was the first time I’ve seen a full length film with Marlene Dietrich in it. I wonder if the library has “The Blue Angel”?
