  • How old?
    Where Eagles Dare and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid are both awesome movies, I think they were from the mid 60s

    • I don't know, I haven't really thought about it... I might do a take on them...

  • The only movie I've seen on this list is "Psycho", and I still think it's overrated. Even for its time, there were scarier movies than that movie. I think it's good, but I get so sick of the glorification of it.

    I've never even heard of "The King and I", but I've been wanting to see "It's a Wonderful Life" for a long time.

  • Sound of music was always the classic at Christmas time around our house. I loved To Sir With Love. Probably all of Clint Eastwood's westerns. I think there's more, but can't think of any right now.

  • Both are fantastic movies. I would say "Gone With the Wind"... Its a Wonderful is number 1 for the holidays. Then maybe something like Wizard of Oz.

  • I suppose it depends on how a person categorizes "old" movies... But let's assume 1960 or before. Psycho is one of my favorites. Roman Holiday is pretty fun.

    The Great Dictator has a REALLY incredible speech toward the end. It's a Charlie Chaplin movie about Naziism.

    Duck Soup is a favorite Marx Bros film. There's this whole scene with this lemonade vendor... go watch it. The timing is incredible.

    Some like it Hot.

    The trouble with Harry. One of my favorite old "horror comedies." It's morbid - there's a bunch of people who all think they killed this guy. So they keep having to bury him (usually to hide the body), then dig him up, then bury, then dig him up again for different reasons. Then they have to figure out how he died, clean him up, then hide him from nosy investigators, etc.

  • I don't know how old you'd consider an old movie to be but below are the ones I can watch repeatedly and enjoy each showing
    The Children's Hour (1961)
    Bye Bye Birdie (1963)
    The Haunting (1963)
    The Producer's (1967)
    You Nazty Spy! (1940)

    I know below are quite a few Shirley Temple movies but I grew up on her stuff and absolutely loved her. My mom is a huge fan of hers so the movies I've listed below (which are part of my favs) are reminiscent of my childhood.
    The Blue Bird (1940)
    Heidi (1937)
    Poor Little Rich Girl (1936)
