Still Quarantined? – 16 Great Movies for Uplifting Your Spirits

At first, the quarantine was like a vacation or holiday. But after awhile, isolation can give you an emptiness in your soul. I think we all need relief from the boredom that can come from isolation. I know that using your phones and the internet in order to interact with other humans does help a lot.

Sometimes we just need some great entertainment. There is a fantastic amount of distraction that comes from good old movies. And, by old, I mean movies from the “Golden Age of Movies”. That era began in about 1930 and lasted until about 1964.

Let’s look at some of the most entertaining movies ever.

Avoid the Crowd at the ticket booth.

I have chosen these particular movies because, from my perspective, they represent some of the best Hollywood had to offer during the “Golden Age of Movies”. When you view some of these movies, remember that the dialog that is used was different from the way Americans speak much of the time today.

These movies have been chosen because of their entertainment value. Some are strictly hilariously funny, while others might just have a lot of subtle humor intertwined in the script. You will see drama, comedy, and romance as well as mystery and suspense.

Let’s see which ones would make you laugh and get away from yourself for while – This is the list:

These are not in order of best to 16th best.

  1. To Catch A Thief (1955)
  2. Rafter Romance (1933)
  3. North By Northwest (1959)
  4. Bringing Up Baby (1938)
  5. The Band Wagon (1953)
  6. The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek (1943)
