Back in Time: TV Shows and Movies


Want to watch some of the old time classic movies? You don't have to buy a thing.. just sit back and enjoy movies such as All Quiet on the Western Front or maybe The Fall of the House of Usher.  Even some of the old silent films are available.  What a great way to share the history of the movies with your kids. Maybe even help them create their own classic!  Here are some sites to watch public domain black and whites, silents and old classics. The standards were usually set higher in years past but not always! I do recommend reviewing all shows and movies before sharing them with your children. Grab the popcorn!
