Every Monday night it's Classic Movie Night at my house. The only condition is that the film must be at least fifty years old. Last night I watched "Just Call Me Madam" which is a musical written by Irving Berlin. What a genius he was! Shame that most people only recognize him as the author of God Bless America and Alexander's Ragtime Band. He wrote so many beautiful songs!!! Anyways, here is a link to one of my favorite songs written and performed by Mr. Berlin. It's from his musical "This is the Army".

I appreciate you sharing your dearest Classic Movies with me. If I haven't watched them, I certainly will.
On The Waterfront directed by Elia Kazan, starring Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, & Eva Maria Saint.
For me, as classic as classic can get.
Old B&W Hitchcock films are by far my faves. Lady Vanishes, 39 Steps, Foreign Correspondent & Sabotage are the most noteworthy in my opinion.
I also love Hitchcock, especially Rear Window because Jimmy Stewart is one of my all-time favorite actors.
Some of my other favorites:
The Maltese Falcon
The African Queen
It Happened One Night
Singin' in the Rain
I could go on and on because I love old movies!
@ Ken, I'll have to check out those films. Thanks.
@ Jonathan - I've seen most Hitchcock movies and LOVE THEM! Glad to hear you have such great taste!
@ Rebekah - Yes... Casablanca! I have the script memorized!
Rear Window, first AH film I ever saw. I was ten and was lucky enough to see it on the big screen during a revival.
Its a wonderful life
Affair to Remember
Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
A Star is Born
I could go on and on!!!
too many to really say. i could list a lot of classic films that are my favorite.
One of my favourite films is "La pianiste" (2001) An adult film about a middle aged piano teacher living with a domineering/submissive mother.
I like many classics, I share a few:
The Magnificent Ambersons
Lawrence of Arabia
A Clockwork Orange
Wuthering Heights and Gone with the Wind - you can both buy it at amazon (video on demand too)
I love some of those already mentioned and then:
Some Like It Hot
Streetcar Named desire
From Here To Eternity
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea
Any Abbot and Costello
Around The World In Eighty Days
Johnny Weismuller Tarzan films
Try "Don Juan Demarco", with Marlon Brando and Johnny Depp.
"The Mountain men", with Charlton Heston and Brian Keith.
If you can find it, there was a short 1 hour film with
Christopher Walken and Susan Sarandon called "Who am I this time?".
A rare old tear jerker starring Red Skelton, called "The Clown".
A made for television classic called "Shogun". Several hours long.,
I think there is a short version out there.
If you are looking for action and can tolerate some salty language, try, "True Romance" Several actors including Christopher Walken, Dennis Hopper, to name a couple.
That should keep you busy for a while.
I like all the classic oldies that everyone mentioned and want to add Now Voyager and Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Love Bette Davis! She made you feel sorry for Joan Crawford Oh and Joan Crawford's movie Mildred Pierce.
I think I have to go with...
Gone With the Wind
Love Now, Voyager. That scene where they share cigarettes...sexy
Casablanca is still my favorite all-time classic movie. But I like a lot of the movies from the 40s.
12 angry men, my favorite film my a long way. Incredible acting and story based in one room. Truely brilliant.
I really enjoy some of the old comedies, for some really vintage laughs try either:
The Thin Man Series with William Powell & Myrna Loy
The Topper movies with Cary Grant, Constance Bennett, Roland Young and Billie Burke
His Girl Friday
Bringing Up Baby
The Wizard of Oz
It's a Wonderful Life
If you mean classics as in movies before the 1950s..not sure how old you mean.
One can never say that GONE WITH THE WIND was not a great movie. The subject, actors and scenery was really something. Watching that movie over and over is like reading a good book over and over (I do that that many times). There are many good and wonderful movies out there so there is plenty of entertainment to watch. Other favorites are too many to mention. Thanks for the interesting facts and figures of movie stars.
The Unfinished Dance, Penny Serenade, Mr. Skeffington, Now Voyager(saw it listed but love it), Anna Karenina with Vivien Leigh and so many more! Harvey!!!!!
Lawrence of Arabia, Planet of the Apes, and Spartacus are my top 3.
'The Lady Eve' 1941 Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda. Rather one of them.

Casablanca, Rear Window, The Shakiest Gun in the West, Pillow Talk, Imitation of Life (both versions), The Bishop's Wife, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Key Largo, Cat on a Hot Tin roof, White Christmas, Metropolis, Les Miserables, and many, many, many, others. LOVE old movies!
Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz , Rear Window,Gone with the Wind and On the Waterfront. Early Brando was awesome !
I dont know if these are considered classics, but The Godfather Movies, The Hustler, Scarface and my favorite Rocky 4. These are classics in my eyes.
