I was just wondering if there are any sick twisted LJ’ers like me who watch old movies just to check out the woodworking and furniture used in a movie.

I’m sick and twisted all right, but the behavior you are describing is perfectly normal, isn’t it? :-)

Greetimgs Gregn,

I guess I fit right in that catagory, cause I do watch some old movies, and like David, I stop the flick to look at the old furniture, also. I have several old movies recorded, or bought, and I know more about the furniture in them than I know what’s going on in the story….. I just watched a new movie the other night with Johnny Depp called “Public Enemies”, about John Dillinger, the bank robber of the 1930’s…good flick, but check out the old cars, old furniture, clothes, etc…..It amazes me where they get all this stuff… They must have a warehouse (or several) where they store all this stuff… it’s in a lot of old flicks..wish I had a few pieces…

Whew, I was afraid it was just me. Glad to hear I’m not the only one who pauses for a better look. Plot whats that I thought it was all about the woodworking and furinture. LOL
