    Favorite Classic Movies

    Someone made a comment in another thread that I found thought-provoking:

    The film being discussed was Freaks (1932).

    And that got me thinking: how many 70-year-old-plus (i.e. 1937 or older) films are there that still pack a wallop, even with today's jaded audiences?

    I'll start us off with a few:

    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
    Nosferatu (1922)
    Phantom of the Opera (1925)

    Your picks?

    Pre-1937's Public Enemy (1931) with James Cagney as gangster Tom Allen, and Jean Harlow as his moll.

    The ending scene still raises the hairs on the back of my neck.

    "The Gold Rush" is my hands-down favorite. Well, I'm a big Chaplin fan so that goes for most of his other movies too. Another favorite of his is "The Kid".

    I haven't seen that many films from that era but I loved 42nd Street (1933) and was really impressed by Douglas Fairbanks Snr's Thief of Bagdad. (1924)

    It makes Lugosi's Dracula look like Walt Disney!

    I love the old black and white movies from that era. I think the talkies all have an impact. The dialogue is so innocent, but just as powerful as the harsh and swear words we hear now.

    I just saw this for the first time last Saturday on TCM and I totally agree with you about the last scene. Great movie! Right after TCM ran Angels With Dirty Faces starring James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and the Dead End Kids. Another great movie from the 30's.

    Un Chien Andalou ~ 1929

    A screenplay by Salvador Dali. This is trippy and done in Dali's trademark surrealistic style. The closest thing to an acid nightmare. The run time is only 16 minutes.

    "Grand Hotel" is a treat. Lionel Barrymore was in it also. It may have been 1929

    The silent one was Lon Chaney. Charles spoke and was very good.

    Speaking of black and white movies my 4 year old loves Wizard of oz, as long as I skip the black and white part.

    Its sad kids don't appreciate the old black and white movies!

    With the lights off late at night an old Universal Horror movie is still more scary then say a Friday the 13th!!!

    Greed-based on the book whose name escapes me at the moment. It involves murder,madness and a character chewing on fingers which leads to lose of fingers. The female character is rich,but would rather be a scrub woman with few fingers rather than spend any of it.

    Original Silent Frankenstein!

    I saw the ORIGINAL 1910 Edison silent Frankenstein in a theatre when the owner of the print loaned it out....THAT was awesome

    We've introduced our 9 year old to the old movie classics starting last month with Nosferatu, Universal Frankenstein, The Thing From Another World, the Creature of the Black Lagoon w/all sequels. I've got some more saved up to show her....all the old sci fi & horror. She loves them.

    She *did* wish it was in color at first but since she hardly ever watches regular tv except documentaries anyway, she adjusted pretty quickly AND hid every time Nosferatu showed up. And the fact that she hasn't been exposed to much modern day tv crap really helped. She wasn't allowed ANY tv when she was under 3 but now she IS allowed to watch a bit of tv crap now and then if she chooses....she chooses not to, thank God.... She blessedly thinks it is CRAP and reads a book. I watch pro wrestling, so NO we aren't tv nazis once the brain is partly wired and you reach 5 or 6.....

    Oh, leevancleef I do! She had passed before I was born, of course, but that didn't stop me from developing a lifelong appreciation of her beauty, spunk, timing, talent, and irreverence. Definitely a one-of-a-kind woman.

    Favorite Classic Movies

    I'm a sucker for old movies - they kind of "transport" me back in time into a magical era.

    I recently re-watched a movie I had discovered years ago called "Portrait of Jennie" - it's a haunting movie.

    I highly recommend it, if you love classic film.

    Has Anyone seen this movie?

    Any other old movies you guys love or recommend?

    Here's some info on "Portrait of Jennie"



    Synopsis:

    The film tells the story of an impoverished painter in New York City, who meets a fey little girl in Central Park wearing old-fashioned clothing. He makes a lovely sketch of her from memory which involves him with an art dealer who is impressed with his work. This inspires him to paint a portrait of her - the "Portrait Of Jennie." He later falls in love with her, when she soon transforms into a mysterious young woman, as she has seemed to age a few years each time he meets her. It was directed by William Dieterle and produced by David O. Selznick.

    Hi Fighter,

    im a HUGE classic film fan.
    i LOVE PORTRAIT OF JENNIE.
    Joseph Cotten is one of the most underrated actors.... and Ethel Barrymore, Lillian Gish.... you couldnt ask for more. im not a huge Jennifer Jones fan (as an actress, she was gorgeous tho) but she really did a nice job in this film.
    i love the opening of the film.

    Awesome! A fellow classic film fan!!

    I agree with he Cotten comment - he is way underrated and his name belongs among the classic actors like Grant, Brando, Bogart, Welles, etc...

    The film is incredible - it's almost a Hitchcock -- and yes the opening of the film is amazing... love the ending too - with the last, technicolor shot..

    Jennifer Jones was gorgeous, but wasn't much of an actress - this is her best acting performance, IMO

    Any other favorites you care to discuss??

    I do like JOE COTTEN very much. JENNIFER JONES, uh, take her or leave her. I thought that PORTRAIT OF JENNIE was an excuse for SELZNICK to show her off & gently shove her alleged qualities down peoples throats. Silly storyline really; like something a 12 year old would have written.

    A few good old movies that come to mind.............

    I'll respectfully agree to disagree with you on "Portrait" - Yes it started off as a Selznick vehicle for Jennifer Jones - but the final product was a haunting film - far from childish.

    Yeah...Jack Benny, Buster Keaton (who I understand was very ill at the time), Three Stooges (too bad their cameo is basically a gimpse of them standing at attention), Jerry Lewis...who else did a cameo in MMMMW? Also too bad Groucho didn't shoot a scene...after all he showed up in Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter.

    Two more for my list, both happen to be Heny Fonda flicks:
    Mr. Roberts (w/ Cagney, Lemmon, William Powell...what a cast!)
    12 Angry Men
    The Strange Case Of The Missing Corpse

    i ADORE The lost weekend. It is , by far, one of the best films of the 40s.
    Ray Milland's performance always reminds me why i love films and good actors so much. And Billy Wilder...what can i say...one of my favorites.

    Double Indemnity is fantastic. Edward G Robinson is so fabulous, i cant believe he wasnt even nominated that year....Barbara Stanwyck is one of the best actress of all time, but i would have picked somebody like Susan Hayward to play that role.

    The best years of our lives---- Awesome. Fredric March's Oscar is one of the most deserved of all time.

    ive yet to see Au Revoir Mes Enfants, i like Louis Malle work. im really looking forward to watch it.

    Everythings so perfect about this movie, Hitch's direction is beyond amazing.
    And Suzanne Pheshette, God Bless Her., Jessica Tandy.. who could ask for more.

    Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte
    is in my top 10 of all time.

    --- I love it! Well, Spencer Tracy is my favorite actor and i heart Fredric March so maybe its just me, that i see it in a very biased way...but i just freaking love this movie.

    Yankee Doodle Dandy ---
    james Cagney was so expressive, what a talent.
    Walter Huston is awesome in this too.

    Not to mention the lovely and beautiful Tippi Hedren - Love Tippi - as a matter of fact I love all of Hitchcock's leading ladies.

    Grace Kelly, Janet Leigh, Kim Novak, Tippi Hedren - He Sure could pick 'em...

    Leave Her To Heaven
    Double Indemnity
    From Here To Eternity (watched this last night--OMG what a classic!)
    Mildred Pierce
    The Spiral Staircase
    Gilda
    Picnic
    Suddenly Last Summer
    Laura
    Sunset Boulevard
    Sorry, Wrong Number
    The Women
    *anything* with Bette Davis

    Since we're discussing favorite old movies, let's get really old. One of my favs I've only seen once in its entirety and I don't own a copy of it but would love to...only because this film's subject, theme, and story point...the silent classic Birth Of A Nation. Viewing this "ancient" film in its entirety today will cause one's jaw to drop. Anybody else know what I'm referring to?
    The Strange Case Of The Missing Corpse

    Mrs. Peel (commenting on Steed's sword): "That looks a bit droopy." Steed: "Wait until it's challenged."

    U know - I have never seen it, but it's on my "to do" list - You are not the first person to tell me this... I'll make sure to watch it soon - I'm pretty sure it's out on DVD.

    Thanks for the recommendation!
