    Making it pre-1953 makes it rather hard as that for me means no "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof", "Psycho", "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" or "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" even though those for me are essentially classic films.


    The Wizard of Oz (I think I have seen it so so so so so many times)
    All About Eve
    Sunset Boulevard
    Jezebel
    I'm No Angel
    Key Largo
    Jeopardy (1953 so right on the cusp)
    Mildred Pierce
    National Velvet
    Cinderella

    That was hard and I actually had a nosey at what others wrote but I guess I could have included the animated movies such as Pinnochio, Bambi, Snow White etc which are probably more watchable than some of my top ten now that I think about it. I haven't seen nearly as many classic films as I would like and ewww my only time watching Casablanca was in colour.

    I've already posted my list, but looking through the thread I see several others that I love. I think I'm the only one who listed Palm Beach Story so I'm going to put in a plug for it. Joel McCrea (great comic actor despite his association with westerns; also very sexy), Claudette Colbert, Rudy Vallee, Mary Astor. It's a Preston Sturges story and just a pure delight from beginning to end. If you love old movies and have never seen it, treat yourself sometime!

    Would have absolutely had Rear Window and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof in place of the last two if the dates had been included. For me those are both definitely classics

    To Kill A Mockingbird was made in 1962 (the novel was published in 1960).

    This is just a guess, but I suspect a lot of people think it's a much older movie because 1) the story takes place in the 1930s, and 2) it was filmed in black and white, giving it a much older "feel."

    It won an Oscar for "Academy Award for Best Art Direction - Set Decoration, Black-and-White" and was nominated for "Best Cinematography, Black-and-White." I'm not an expert when it comes to the history of the Academy Awards (far from it ), especially when it comes to the many changes, additions, and deletions of categories for awards, but if I had to wager a guess, with regard to the production categories for movies, at that time the Academy differentiated between movies made in black and white from those made in color and gave separate awards for them.

    With all of the film buffs here at FSU (especially members who are knowledgable about this), someone can confirm or refute this.

    Yeah, they did. They separated the categories in '39 and continued separating them until '66, according ot this.

    And TKAM is still a classic to me But I would include all the Godfathers and the original Star Wars as classics too if you'd asked me like a week ago before I realized this might offend some people

    One day someone will tell me Titanic is a classic, though.
