Updated on August 19, 2015

Fall Time Classics

With Fall just around the corner and the temperatures looking to slowly drop meaning more time indoors with a bowl of popcorn and movies. Classic films are the way to start your fall season off right and knowing the right ones to watch will make the cool, crisp season that much better. Let’s take a look at the five classic films that will make you laugh, cry and jump.


Grumpier Old Men/(1995)- A classic from the 90’s directed by Howard Deutch and set in the small town of Wabasha, Minnesota with returning main actors Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon as their characters Max and John. This sequel is set during the fall time unlike its preceding version that was set in the heart of winter. Max is still married to his new wife Ariel (Ann-Margret) while still bickering away each day with his old best friend and next door neighbor John. Both Max and Johns kids get engaged to one another, but soon run into trouble that initially comes from the doings of Max and John. A hot new lady is in town named Maria (Sophia Loren) that decides to open up a new restaurant in town, the only thing is it is old Chuck’s fishing store. Ups and downs go round and round with laughter around every corner. This is a delight to start your fall season off in the right direction.


The Wolf Man/(1941)- Extending things quite a bit further back in time while straying from the comedy scene and into the horror genre. This old classic is sure to get you going near Halloween time and possibly keep you awake as the fear of the wolf man dawns upon your mind. Directed by George Waggner and starring classic sensations such as Lon Chaney Jr., Evelyn Ankers and a glimmer of horror classic sensation Bela Lugosi is a tale about a man by the name Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.) who returns to his home in Wales in hopes to reconcile with his father (Claude Rains). In due process he meets an attractive shoekeeper Gwen (Evelyn Ankers) where the two begin a rollercoaster ride of romance throughout the film. Problems arise for Larry when he decides to walk Gwen and her friend home through the woods at night where he encounters gypsy’s. He kills a werewolf during the encounter in which he is bitten and in the action kills the werewolf with a silver headed cane he had bought from Gwen earlier that day. The story takes a dramatic turn at this point when the werewolf then transforms back into the old gypsy and Larry begins the ride of his life when he finds out it was not all a dream. This film is definitely a must watch during Halloween and is number two in the pick for fall favorites.


Planes, Trains and Automobiles/(1987)- Going back up the timeline to the 80’s and transferring over to the drama/comedy scene again, this film is a Thanksgiving classic and a great way to end the fall season. Non stop laughter with a control freak Neal Page (Steve Martin) and his counterpart and shower curtain ring salesman Del Griffith (John Candy) meet each other in a crowded and backed up airport as Neal struggles to make it back home to his wife (Laila Robbins) and his kids for Thanksgiving. After being seated next to Del on the plane, Neal flight journey is filled with an large loud mouth with dirty socks slinging in the air. The flight is soon diverted and brought down in Wichita, Kansas where Neal at least hopes his troubles with Del were done, but they were far from over. Both of them bicker back and forth throughout the movie while going from a plane, to a train, bus and a run down rental car in the adventure of a lifetime. Talk about a way to end your fall season in the right direction with laughter heading towards the winter time holidays.

These three classic picks are sure to give you what you need throughout the fall season. From laughter, fear and a few tears, there is something for everyone and everything for one. So grab a bowl of popcorn, sit back, relax and watch your fall time turn into an unforgettable classic.
