I have had the best luck lately finding movies I wanted at thrift stores! I will think of a movie that I'd like to own, and then I'll look for it on eBay, Amazon (used or new), and maybe even put it on my Watch List, or in my Shopping Cart. But I'm always hoping for the best deal. So when I find one for $1.00 at a thrift shop, I'm thrilled. I was SO happy to find "The Goodbye Girl"! I love that film, and I hadn't seen it for years. And I've only watched "Return To Me" once when it was on TV. LOVED it, and wanted my own copy.
I've never seen "The Natural", and I searched for it for months. Finally found it last week! And I wanted a copy of "You've Got Mail", too - another favorite:
And no, I do not care that they are VHS. I still use my VCR's daily - no problem. We went to see "The Majestic" at the theater; I thought it was great. And some scenes were filmed in Ferndale and Fort Bragg, California - two of my favorite places! We were tickled to see the Skunk Train Depot - that area is one of our old stomping grounds! Believe it or not, I don't believe I have ever watched "Ghost" in it's entirety. Found myself a copy - so now I can!
I found both of these Pink Panther movies on the same day at different shops. I adored Peter Sellers. Now I need to look for "The Pink Panther Strikes Again", and "The Revenge of The Pink Panther"!
Unlike the way I usually feel about remakes, I actually look forward to some day seeing Steve Martin's version - because I love him, too! As a matter of fact, "The Jerk" is another movie I found at a thrift shop. And I'll buy more of his films, if I find them.
Don't you absolutely love it when you find something that you are specifically HOPING to find at a thrift store? I sure do.
