It is like MY WORLD! An immense passion and well.. I wanted to try to watch more films when I had the time, because I am looking for good old movies to watch!
I am in love with everything from past decades and 1920's-1980's
but mostly I love the 50's and 60's radical man-

I love these movies, V top picks for me!
My fave movies are April Love, with Pat Boon, Agatha Christie Series, James Bond

Thank you so much fellow classic movie lovers! -hug- Maybe we can even discuss about it!
Cheers! <3 :star:

Well, a lot of Bing Crosby's movies are pretty good, and I do have a soft spot for the first version of "A Streetcar Named Desire."

When I was really young there was this movie "In Search of the Castaways" that I was in love with and still remember fondly. It's in color, but dates from the 1960s and the visual effects are probably laughable today. That is a family friendly adventure story
If you wanted more adult oriented maybe the Pink Panther series with Peter Sellers (well you've probably already seen these anyhow) but that's my all time favorite.
Slightly more obscure is something like 'Forbidden Planet' from 1956 which is also in color, and i guess it's the first movie ever with an electronic soundtrack. It's totally awesome, I loved it.
Even more obscure- there's an East German flick "Haisser Sommer!" which can be bought on amazon, is a musical all in German from 1968. Was way more catchy and cute than I expected.

I could easily recommend anything that includes Vincent Price. That man is amazing. *.* Especially The Tingler, House of Wax, and A Comedy of Terrors.

I'd also highly recommend Blithe Spirit and Auntie Mame (with Rosalind Russell). Those are definitely two of my all-time favorite old movies! Berserk with Joan Crawford was also really good, if I remember correctly, but it's been a while since I watched it.

My mom raised me to love old movies (especially musicals), so I totally get where you're coming from. She's slowly introducing me to more and more. :D

A classic that doesn't get quite enough love would definitely be the "Little Shop of Horrors" from '86.
Amazing animatronics, great design, songs and actors. (Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Steve Martin, Bill Murray)

Really lovely movie to say the least.

Sorcerer but no Wages of Fear! Pah! ( Great list otherwise! )
Berlioz-II Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012
I haven't seen the '53 version yet, and even so I was just cherry picking stuff I have on DVD, hence there's likely to be various... snubs. But that film is on my to-watch list whenever I can get around to it. :)
cajunattack Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012  Professional General Artist
Ah, no worries mate. I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen at least a quarter of the films on your list! Def recommend Wages Of Fear- though the first hour or so drags a wee bit, when they actually get in the trucks the film is brilliant- with more suspense and exciting moments than most modern thrillers.

If you're looking for an older movie that's got a lotta humor in it, check our The great Scout & Cathouse Thursday~
That one's a really funny one. ^_^
MarieHollywood Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I have a few I could recommend you, I'm not exactly sure what year they came out and I'm a bit to lazy to look it up.

One would have to be Murder By Death. It's similar to Clue in the murder mystery setting. (also, if you haven't seen Clue, watch it, its awesome!) Murder By Death is a classic parody in which many famous literary detectives are parodied. All of the detectives in the film are parodies of the work of three authors: Dashiell Hammett, whose Nick Charles and Sam Spade were the basis for Dick Charleston and Sam Diamond, respectively; Agatha Christie, whose Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple inspired Milo Perrier and Miss Marbles; Earl Derr Biggers Charlie Chan was the basis for Inspector Sidney Wang and his son.

Two, would have to be Hackers. It's from 95. A young boy is arrested by the US Secret Service for writing a computer virus and is banned from using a computer until his 18th birthday. Years later, he and his new-found friends discover a plot to unleash a dangerous computer virus, but they must use their computer skills to find the evidence while being pursued by the Secret Service and the evil computer genius behind the virus. Really a funny movie worth watching.

Next would be Young Sherlock Holmes. This came out in 85 and its awesome! When assorted people start having inexplicable delusions that lead to their deaths, a teenage Sherlock Holmes decides to investigate.

My dad actually got me to watch all of these. They are honestly great movies and I highly recommend them. I hope you watch them and enjoy them if you do.
Scootie-chan Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You watched Hackers too? Awesome~! ^o^
That movie is definitely a worthy one to watch~ ^^
My favorite scene would be the part where Dade's typing really really fast on the keyboard and Kate says "I hope you don't type like you screw" then he starts typing slowly. hahah~<3
That one has a lotta humorous scenes~<3
MarieHollywood Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes. haha I love hackers.
I love that part! Honestly though, I love Mathew Lillards character Cereal Killer. Any scene with him in it is bound to be funny.
Scootie-chan Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It's an awesome movie~
Kinda reminds me of JSRF. xD
Oh yeah~
Cereal Killer is AWESOME~! ^o^
I liked that scene where he climbed out from underneath a desk and walked away with that big tool belt pulling down his pants. xD
He's just crazy~ ^^
I'd love to see more movies with him. I gotta check and see what else he did. lol~

ErPuPoNe Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
if you want it deep and touching, watch "La Dolce Vita" from legendary Italian director, Federico Fellini.

other classics I like are Roman Holiday, Casablanca, To have or to have not, The Third man, It's a sin to kill mockingbirds, Gilda ..

Not many people appreciate classics, I'm glad you like these stuff :)

Well, the film which I've watched the most in my lifetime is So I Married An Axe Murderer. That's like '80s or maybe '90s. After that, I think, comes Scott Pilgrim, the Fantastic Mr. Fox (Not old films) and then It's A Wonderful Life! Those are some of my favourite movies. Just thought you would like to know.

Labyrinth. It's from '86 and has David Bowie doing all the music. It's my favourite. Also, Legend, starring a very young Tom Cruise in a skirt. There's also the original God, I love old fantasy movies, they're so trippy. Like the original The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (from 1967, with a real live lion. So much better than the new one). Or Willow.

The Sting (1973, with Paul Newman and Robert Redford) and Paper Moon (also 1973, with Ryan and Tatum O'Neal) I remember seeing Paper Moon as a kid, and it left a really big impression on me. The Sting we were forced to watch in High School and everyone was so bummed that got picked....until we watched the movie and we were all left with our jaws on the floor. If you like those and want other suggestions....I grew up living with my grandma, so I did nothing but watch old films, so I can totally help you out. It was great!

Jungle Book(the 1942 live action film)

The Wizard of Oz(1939)

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory(1971)

The first few Planet of the Apes movies

I'm a huge fan of old martial arts fims(most of which are from the 1960s-1970s), but I have over 200 of them, so it would be a bit hard to list them all lol.

Also , I used to ALWAYS watch the old charlie chaplin movies , there's also the third man ,which is supposed to be a classic :)
Hope this helps a bit! :D
