I'm 13, and I want to get into old songs and movies?
I'm 13, and even though I do love modern day films, and songs, I feel like I'm missing out on a whole other world of things. I really hate horror movies, but could you suggest some good old movies and songs? Thanks :)

Well there are loads of great old films and music and I know because I pretty much love all of that a whole lot more then now a day things. Some old movies may be Breakfast at Tiffany's, and one of the songs could be Dream a little dream of me by Fabien Andre and Wilber Schlwandt, Fly me to the moon by Frank Sinatra, and Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin. Some artists can be like Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Bob Dylan, Elvis, the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix. Really good old tv shows that I absolutely love are I Love Lucy or The Brady Bunch. Just kinda explore a little because there are loads of great time eras from 20's to 80's. if I had to choose a fav I just couldn't i love them all, I wished so bad that I lived back then. Hope I was a little bit of help (: And btw, we are the same age (:

I am going to list the best Hollywood musicals of all time:
1. The Wizard of Oz
3. My Fair Lady
4. Singing in the Rain
5. The Sound of Music
7. The King and I
8. Fiddler on the Roof
9. Funny Girl
10. Meet Me in St Louis
For a real old but great classic, try a Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers, like "The Gay Divorcee" whose song "The Continental" was the first film song to win the Oscar for Best Song.

Go to IMDB.com and find the top 250 movies
start watching those movies. I suggest you watch them in order just to give yourself a focus point. I'll admit that some of those movies on the list are hard to watch if your not use to 3 hour epics, but others are great movies for anybody
12 Angry Men
and for old songs, start with...

hitchcock is usually a good place to start. almost everyone loves hitchcock. Rear Window, Dial M for Murder, The Birds are all great flicks that are easy to get into. Vertigo is his best, imo.
if you like romances, you might check out Casablanca, Breakfast at Tiffanys, Some Like It Hot, The Quiet Man.
if you're looking for something heavier, 12 Angry Men, Sunset Boulevard, Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Manchurian Candidate.
at around 11, I first watched The Godfather and it blew me away. but, it's R rated and contains a lot of violence, and a brief nudity and sex scene.

I would suggest starting with the movie "Operation Petticoat" it's a comedy with Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. If you enjoy that you will be lead to watch more Cary Grant films which there are lots and you will discover other stars such as Katharine Hepburn and James Stewart and their movies by doing so.
