    Re: Classic movies (suggestions)

    A lot of films that came to my mind have already been listed, such as "The Searchers," "Casablanca" "Patton" and, yes, "Groundhog Day."
    "It Happened One Night" should be on the list, as perhaps one of the best of the screwball comedies and one of the few films to sweep the Oscars for best picture, best actor and best actress.
    "Gone With The Wind" has to make the list. It was bad history, but it is the Hollywood epic of the first half of the 20th Century.
    "The Outlaw Josey Wales" remains my favorite Clint Eastwood film.
    "Shane" wasn't a perfect film, but it had a near perfect ending, with "Little Joe" calling out for Shane to return.
    Speaking of a near perfect ending, no film has ever so consistently caused my eyes to mist up every time I watch it than has "Field of Dreams." Maybe you have to be a guy whose father is dead to appreciate the closing scene.
    "Blazing Saddles" is a classic.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Judgement at Nuremberg. (1961) (nominated for Best Picture)

    You find yourself not wanting to take a breath for three hours.

    It's appropriate for today's political climate.

    Maximillian Schell won an Oscar best Actor (1961)

    Burt Lancaster

    Spencer Tracy is excellent. (nominated for Best Actor)

    Richard Widmark

    Marlene Dietrich

    Judy Garland (nominated for Best Supporting Actress)

    Montgomery Clift is excellent in his small part. (nominated for Best Supporting Actor)

    ....and William Shatner, who doesn't ruin it.

    Directed by Stanley Kramer (nominated for Best Director)

    Won an Oscar for Best Writing

    4 other Oscar nominations.

    I just saw "A Hard Day's Night" for the first time. I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it. 2 others I'm not sure if they've been mentioned yet, "Inherit the Wind" and "Seven Days in May".

    I didn't know how people would take that. I thought I was stretching it when I mentioned Shatner.

    William Shatner and Werner Klemperer in the same movie. There doesn't need to be any other reason why it's a classic.

    Re: Classic movies (suggestions)

    Ok, I went through my collection and everyone has named my favorites already except these:

    True Grit
    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
    The Caddy
    Westworld
    Omega Man
    The Changeling
    Blade Runner
    Big Trouble in Little China
    An American Werewolf in London

    The last 3 probably aren't 'classics' yet, but they're getting closer.

    Of all the movies mentioned previously, after the list you've noted, I'd recommend first watching Lawrence of Arabia. Oh, and try to get the version with the original intermission and intermission music....really takes you back!


    Enjoy!
