So what are your favorite old old movies, i mean Black and White style?

Mine? Id have to go with 1933's 'Wild Boys Of The Road' starring, Frankie Darro, who is an awesome actor, not to mention cute.

2nd I like the 1932 film 'Freaks' about a woman who falls in love with a 'LP' and its also about a traveling circus show.

Mr Zero
From the 40's - (as per my profilesmile

Les Enfants du paradis (1945)
A Matter of Life and Death (1946)

From the 30's, two from one of my favourite actors: Ronald Coleman

A tale of two Cities (1935)

Lost Horizon (1937)


from the 30's
Gone With The Wind (1939) - this movie is every bit of the hype it has received over the years...cinema history.

The Wizard of Oz (1939) - who doesn't know this movie

City Lights (1931) - the most notable Charles Chaplin film ever (the gold rush (1925) nearly pales in comparison)

from the 40's
Arsenic and Old Lace (1944) -Cary Grant is so adorable in this and Peter Lorre is so class.

I Married a Witch (1942) - fun dark comedy and Veronica Lake is to sexy.

The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) - war and tragedy come home in this fabulous movie...really really great.

It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - still played here every Christmas

The Maltese Falcon (1941) - the 40's was Humphrey Bogart's decade and what can I say I just love Peter Lorre

the forties to me had so many good movies it really is hard to just pick a few...I must mention the late 30's through the 40's is when Disney really began to make it's mark.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937)
Fantasia (1940)
Bambi (1942)
Pinocchio (1940)
Song Of The South (1946) -most people don't know this movie because it's been banned but the song Zippity do da. Zippity-ay came from it. sang by Uncle Remus'

Crap I forgot The Wizard Of Oz. Add that'n stick out tongue

I almost didn't write it either...'cause who doesn't love the wizard? big grin

Citizen Kane i've seen it a couple of times and i thought is was an excellent film--great acting, plot, editing. i was particularly impressed with how the movie was directed and most of the time i was just so amazed with the cinematography. these are some of the reason why i thought the film was exceptional.

For real BK.

Mustn't forget King Kong.

That was koo too.

Meet John Doe
Any of the Three Stooges shorts (we're counting those, right?)
Most John Wayne films of those decades
Ditto Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant & Jimmy Stewart
Noir, Potboiler & Hitchcock stuff, the names of which I'm too lazy to look up right now.

The three stooges are from the 50's n 60's
John Wayne is from the 50's 60's and 70's

Uh, girlie? It's not often I want to reach across the internet and throttle somebody for exhibiting such stupidity. You should feel honored.

The Three Stooges had their biggest successes in the 30's and 40's. They made 130 features during those two decades, including "Restless Knights", "Hoi Polloi" and "Pardon my Scotch" (1935),
"Disorder in the Court" (1936), "You Nazty Spy" and "A-plumbing we will Go" (1940), "The Brideless Groom" (1947) and a host of others.

John Wayne is from the 50's, 60's and 70's??? He was in 70 films throughout the 30's, and his breakthrough role came in 1939 ("Stagecoach"wink! Some of his greatest films are from the 40's! Do you even know who John Wayne is? Look him up! In fact, do a little research before you chastise somebody.
