 "Rosemary's Baby." One of the best horror movies. 

 

"Midnight Cowboy." Premise isn't to everyone's liking, but Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight's acting is excellent.

Re: Favorite Classic Movies❓

I'm with some others popular favourites. I suppose that's why they're Classics.

White Heat

Yankee doodle Dandy

Angel with Dirty Faces    Can you tell I'm a Cagney fan??

 

Cassablanca    It's not the "Deepest" of movies, but fun.

To Have and Have Not.    Always considered this a Prequel story for Rick. the names have been changed to protect....

 

African Queen

 

The Philladelphia Story   Kate Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart .   A highbrow romp that still entertains.

 

Forbidden Planet  Leslie Neilson, Anne Francis and Walter Pigeon.  STILL an interesting story.

 

The Day the Earth Stood Still  The one with Michael Rennie and Patricia Neil  again an interesting story.

 

War of the Worlds  Gotta love it when Earth Wins!

If The Long Long Trailer  with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz is a classic movie than that is my favorite.  I am a big Lucy fan.

Re: Favorite Classic Movies❓

I'm not sure how far back a movie has to go before it can be considered a classic.

 

But movies I'll watch again include:

 

Young Frankenstein 

Dr. Zhivago

Body Heat

The Great Escape

 

All of those other movies mentioned I either haven't seen of didn't like.  Most are movies considered great classics by most people.  I never want to see Wizard of Oz , Gone With the Wind or any movie with Bette Davis, Joan Crawford or any of those old actors again.

Another one of my favoritesSmiley Happy  The dresses worn by her bridal party and the shower are lovely.  The part with Desi in the shower is hysterical.
