Would You Rather: Classic Movie Edition

Hello, everybody!

Cordy at Any Merry Little Thought is hosting a Month of Classics Blog Party!
She has come up with this would you rather game, so I am doing it! Of course.
Would You Rather: Classic Movie Edition:

~Would you rather dance with Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly?~

Hm... that is so hard! I'm taller than Gene Kelly, so maybe Fred Astaire? But, all of Fred's dances look so complicated. Ahh, so hard!!!!
Okay, I've decided on Gene Kelly, because dancing with him I'd have "Dignity. Always dignity."
With Fred Astaire, this would be me:

~Would you rather star opposite Cary Grant or Gregory Peck?~
Cary Grant! And it would be in a comedy, of course. Because he is hilarious!

~Would you rather be serenaded by Howard Keel or Bing Crosby?~
I think I have seen only one movie with Howard Keel, so Bing Crosby. I have been listening to Bing as long as I can remember. I think my grandpa actually knew Bing, but I'm not certain.

~Would you rather share an airplane ride with Danny Kaye or Donald O'Connor?~

NOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! How in the world can I answer this??? Why did you do this to me, Cordy!?

*sigh* I guess I have to pick. Just give me a minute.
Donald O'Connor, because he would "Make 'em laugh". I know, I know, two quotes from the same movie in one post? It's my favorite movie of all time! Also, Donald O'Connor and I both have blue eyes, not that that has anything to do with being on the same airplane.

~What classic movie outfit would you steal?~ (No you cannot say all of them! ;))

Steal? Couldn't we bargain? No? Okay then.

Hmm... the first dress we see Truly Scrumptious in, the blue and white one.
Sorry I couldn't find any full length pictures!
Sigh, I just realized that this blog party is featuring movies from 1930-1965. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was made in 1968. Oh bother. I guess I'll go with the first dress we see Sabrina in (Sabrina [1954]).(This was the hardest question, Cordy!!!)

~Would you rather be cast in a classic noir film or a classic western?~

Noir! I have always loved mysteries, and in westerns there can be mysteries, but you get to sneak around and be in the shadows in noir films. Hmm, but you get to ride horses in westerns... I'm sticking with noir.
To tell the truth I have seen more classic westerns than noir films.

~Would you rather go on a shopping spree with Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelly?~

Audrey Hepburn! Of the top of my head I don't think I have seen anything with Grace Kelly, let me go check. I was right.
I don't really like going on shopping sprees, but it would be fun with Audrey!

~Would you rather solve a mystery with William Powell or Myrna Loy?~

WHHATT!!!!!!?????? BOTH OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THERE IS NO OTHER ANSWER!!!!
I can only pick one!?? Why!!?? I guess I'll have to go with Myrna because she wouldn't find ways to get rid of me, but she might sneak off if I thought something was too dangerous. The answer remains both.

~Would you rather imitate Jimmy Stewart's voice in front of Jimmy Stewart, or imitate Maureen O'Hara's "temper" in front of Maureen O'Hara?~
My sister is actually pretty good at imitating Jimmy Stewart, so if we did it together he would probably laugh at how bad I am.

This game was so much fun to do! Thank you so much, Cordy!

Please go check out all the Classic movie fun at Any Merry Little Thought.

Thanks for reading!



  1. Fun post! I'm not a huge classic movie watcher, but I'm familiar with Bing Crosby and Audrey Hepburn (of course) and have heard of most of the others. XD

    Would You Rather games are SO HARD, aren't they???

    1. Thanks, Lila! Bing and Audrey are the classics of the classics! If you haven't seen anything with Jimmy Stewart, though, I definitely recommend him!

      They are almost impossible to answer!!

  2. Truly Scrumptious has such pretty clothes!

  3. Hahahaha, that dancing clip. XD

    I wondered if you'd have a hard time with the Danny or Donald question... sooorry. ;)

    I don't like shopping either, but going with one of the two gals I chose would hopefully be some kind of fun.

    Thanks for playing, MovieCritic!

    1. Oh, and have I ever told you how much I love your header? It's just so perfect!! <3

    2. As soon as I read the question, that scene came into my mind. I knew I'd have to include it!

      Oh, Cordy. Why, oh, why did you do that!! ;) I'll forgive you, though.

      Agreed. Even if I didn't get anything it would be an enjoyable time. :)

      Thanks for hosting this, Cordy!!

      P.S. Aw, thanks! My little sister made it and she did a good job. I'll be keeping it up for awhile. :)


To comment, or not to comment? That is the question. Whatever you decide, I would love to hear from you!! I am always open to suggestions, advice, and any other comments! Even if you don't agree with me, I would love to hear from you as long as you keep the comment respectful and on subject. And, please, no swearing. I love comments on old posts!!
My computer won't let me leave comments, so it might take a few days, but I will reply!
