Revisit the Best in Classic Cinema
When you're an adult struggling to make ends meet, it's fun to take solace in the occasional movie that takes you back to a simpler time and relieves stress. Lucky for you, there's an even better way to enjoy classic movies without guilt - you can earn extra money online by taking paid surveys on Opinion Outpost simply by sharing your valuable opinions with some of the country's most powerful marketing voices. Even luckier, you can get paid for online surveys in the comfort of your own home, making it more easy than ever to watch the occasional flick or even share an old favorite with the next generation. Here are Opinion Outpost's top picks for your next classic movie night with the family!
"The Wizard of Oz"
It comes as no surprise that this ranks at the very top of Rotten Tomatoes' Classic Movies list based on critical reviews of yesteryear and today. A tale for all ages that almost every American is familiar with, the film version of the 1900 L. Frank Baum youth novel was released in the summer of 1939, launching a young Judy Garland to stardom in her leading role as Dorothy, as well as featuring some of the era's most talented character actors. Whether the Scarecrow is tripping over his own feet in a wobble-induced dance fervor, the Cowardly Lion is blubbering beneath a huge fur suit or Dorothy herself is clicking the beautiful but dangerous ruby slippers to return to her home in Kansas, the gorgeous music and memorable story have been an important part of cinematic history for generations.
This film isn't for kids of all ages, but contains one of film's most timeless love stories. Released in 1942, "Casablanca" stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman as star-crossed lovers who just can't seem to make it work - Bogart plays Rick, a deeply unhappy nightclub owner in the movie's titular location, Bergman a rebellious wife to Victor Laszlo who hopes to escape World War II to America. Though theirs is a famously unhappy ending, you'll be teary-eyed at the end while "As Time Goes By" plays one last time.
"Gone With The Wind"
Considered Technicolor's first triumph and one of the most financially successful films of all time, "Gone With the Wind" is based on the Margaret Mitchell novel of the same name and follows famously fickle protagonist Scarlett O'Hara (played by British actress Vivien Leigh) during the American Civil War of the 1860's. Ranked fourth on the American Film Institute's iconic "100 Years 100 Movies" list, this sweeping, three-hour epic takes the viewer on a journey with Scarlett through good times, war, poverty and tainted love. Fun fact: "Gone with the Wind" and "The Wizard of Oz" were released in the same year by the same director!
Making money online is the first step toward reclaiming time for yourself and your family that can be spent enjoying movies and other activities together. What's more, the cash you make from paid surveys can be put toward purchasing these timeless classics!
