In my life so far I've watched lots and lots of movies but they have all been movies that were fairly current when I watched them. As a result, I've only seen movies from the late 70's through today (I'm in my 30's...). Anyway -- I'd like to start watching some of the "classics" -- I feel like there are lots of references to these older movies in life, and I feel like I'm missing out on some great cinema. Can you please tell me your favorite old movie and why you like it ? Also what type of movie genre it is (i.e. drama, horror, comedy, tearjerker, etc). Thanks, and look forward to reading the replies and compiling a new movie list!!
