45 Favorite Movies to Watch While You Are Social Distancing

Like many of you, I have made the decision to self-isolate, to distance myself from all except family, trying to avoid the coronavirus. I am in my 60s with high blood pressure so I have to be careful. I am already close to being a homebody so I am hoping that it will not be hard. But I can't watch the news all day...too depressing...and I don't find very much on television that will keep my mind off of our situation. I do have a house full of projects that I have not gotten around to doing and, if the rain will ever stop, I have lots of yard work I can do.  Honestly, I am not a big reader but I have to admit that I am finding comfort in my favorite movies. So to help me have a variety of choices, I made a list. They are generally light-hearted, with some period pieces and lots of romantic comedies and a few that I just love...nothing too heavy-duty for me right now! Some of these I have watched so many times that I almost know them by heart and having them going in the background is comforting. So just in case you are in the same situation, I thought I'd share my list with you.
