I like to watch older movies sometimes (all types) - Can anyone recommend some good ones?

I didn't want to by into the hype because so n so starred in it.... Just looking for something between the 1940's - 1980's that is genuine.

    To Kill a Mockingbird, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Harvey, A Royal Wedding, Father of the Bride, Singing in the Rain, An American in Paris, etc... There are LOTS of good ones! Oh! And Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is amazing.

    The Dirty Dozen is good, and so are all Bruce Lee movies. The best are the original Star Wars ;D

    I always enjoyed a movie from 1944 called Jane Eyre. Classic Orson Welles movie. It also has a young Elizabeth Taylor as a child in it. You'll also recognize Agnes Moorehead who played in TVs Bewitched. Enjoy.

    the court jester with danny kaye. not sure how old it is and not into old movies myself but you gotta give credit to those old actors; they were true entertainers singing and dancing and comedy, they did it all unlike today where you just have to look good and let the computer graphics tell the story. danny kaye was very talented and fun to watch; thats about the only old movie i like though.
