    How can you let other people decide if a movie is good or not, you should decide that for yourself.

    that's debatable

    they have some unique ones on your list, I'd look at ones from the 1940's as having the most promise.

    you have to remember things and the world was different back then and cannot be compared to todays movies.

    1943 Stage Door Canteen Kenny Baker Tallulah Bankhead Edgar Bergen

    1941 Second Chorus Fred Astaire Paulette Goddard Artie Shaw

    1946 Till the Clouds Roll By Judy Garland Frank Sinatra Dinah Shore

    what you should do is pick out a few names that you recognize and search for a bit of background on them like Ray Bolger, Vivian Blaine, Eddie Cantor

    1957 Pied Piper of Hamelin, The Van Johnson Jim Backus Claude Rains

    for example you might know Jim Backus as Thurston Howell III from "Gilligan's Island" .but did you know he was in hundreds of old movies?

    Of the films you have listed, I would only recommend a handful:

    Glorifying the American Girl, Stage Door Canteen, Road Show, Hi Diddle Diddle, Royal Wedding, Jack and the Beanstalk, Up in the Air and Minstrel Man are all films well worth the investment of your time in watching them. Each of the films I have listed have merits of their own. Of the eight films, four have been nominated for Oscars with a total of six nominations amongst them.

    In my opinion, each of these have elements of classics.

    I'm sorry, but this list is waaay too long. A couple of those may be considered classics, such as "Private Buckaroo" because it starred Abbot and Costello, and introduced the song "Boogie-woogie Bugle Boy of Company B" which was covered by Bette Midler in the 70s.

    Ditto "Jack and the Beanstalk" with A & C and the boxer Buddy Baer, whose son, Max Baer, would someday play Jethro Bodine on "The Beverly Hillbillies."

    I would definitely recommend "Royal Wedding" with Fred Astaire. "Til The Clouds Roll By" is a good movie, based on the life of Composer Jerome Kerns. "Stage Door Canteen" is kinda a lame story line but it's fun to watch if you like the people who are in it.
