What are some of your favorite classic movies?
I am talking pre-1970, not “Jaws”, “Star Wars” or anything from the 80’s.

We all know of “Wizard of Oz” and “Gone with the Wind” (which I’ve never seen in its entirety).

One of my favorite classics is “Forbidden Planet”. I saw it at the Varsity in the early 80’s, in a double feature with the original “The Time Machine”, and it has always been on top of my list ever since.

My second runner up is “Roman Holiday”. I never saw it until a couple years ago, before going to Rome on vacation myself.

All great movies, but they are all mega blockbusters (“Great Escape” is one of my favorites), but what about some sleepers, like “Forbidden Planet”?

Well Lawrence is #1.

Because it's the greatest thing ever put on celluloid and will never be duplicated.

(Wait, you've never seen Gone with Wind in its entirety?)

Why are we talking? Don't admit that shite on a movie board and hope to still post topics about classics.

You haven't seen Gone with the Wind and you want to have conversation about classics? That's like a baby wanting to discuss menapouse.

I feel like Bill Burr now, I want to strangle you for starting a topic you couldn't care less about with your admitted lack of classic movie watching habits.

I’ve seen the entire thing, just not in one sitting, the same with “The Godfather”. TBH, I don’t really care that much for GWTW.

Great film, and yes, I’ve seen it (sorry Mizzubuck). I actually have it on my DVR.

I’ll ask again tho, any sleepers?

I'm sure none of these are sleepers, but they don't normally make it into M/TV threads:

Westerns were such a form of art back then (and there were so many made), I'm purposefully excluding those, but I'll include war movies:

All Quiet on the Western Front

The Best Years of Our Lives

The Grapes of Wrath

The Hustler

Mr. Roberts

The Caine Mutiny

Some Like it Hot

The Apartment

On the Waterfront

The Longest Day

12 O'clock High

Lawrence of Arabia

The Thin Man

His Girl Friday

It Happened One Night

Bringing up Baby

The Philadelphia Story

It's a Wonderful Life

Double Indemnity

The Maltese Falcon

Ben Hur

Sunset Boulevard

Citizen Kane

King Kong
