I adore 1930-1960 film. I just love that era, I wish I was born so that I could have lived through it, such an elegant and classy time imo.

Here are my personal favorurites that I would definately suggest.

-Wuthering Heights; Lawrence Olivier is absolutley gorgeous in it.
-To have and have not- I love the chemistry between Bogie and Bacall, she is such a beautiful woman.
-An affair to remember; My favourite Cary Grant movie, Deborah Kerr is really stunning in it, I was never really a fan of her, but I love her in this.
-Gentleman's Agreement; Gregory peck is amazing , it's a moving story about anti-seminism
-Duel in the sun; Westen movie but it was the first Peck movie I saw when I was about 8/9, and I fell in love with him
-Wait until dark; 60's Hepburn movie, not my personal favoutite time period, I hate that mod look etc, but she's great in it, and it's a less common movie of her's and shows her acting range well.
-Pride and Prejudice; The best Austen adaptation imo
-Little Women; I think the fact that it's black and white adds to the appeal, as well and Katherine Hepburns beauty.
-Rebecca; Such an eerie movie, beautifully acted, although I'd also suggest the book by Daphne Du Maurier.
-Roman Holiday; The only bad point about the movie is that I so wanted Gregory and Audrey to be together but that's the whole point I suppose, duty and love
-Sabrina Fair; Audrey is so adorable in it, and I love love love her outfits, she is the epitome of parisian chic in this movie
-Marked Woman; It was a strange liking for me, but Bogart is at his best in it imo, such a talanted actor.
-Suspicion;- Joan Fontaine is beautiful as always, Cary Grant delivers as the desirable rebel as always, he's trŤs attractive whilst doing it.
-Spellbound; Not a Bergman fan at all, I don't see the appeal but she's brilliant in this as is Mr. Peck...thats why I like it, can't get enough that scoundrel.

A Place in the Sun
only for the two most beautiful creatures ever to be seen on film - Montgomery Clift & Elizabeth Taylor
West Side Story - loved the music
Young at Heart - Frank Sinatra looks soo gd when he's brooding on screen, and u also get to see doris day sing.lovely.
Paris- Troy Donohue (sp?)
What's New Pussycat? - one of the first woody allen appearances and of course the wonderfully elegant Capucine
Splendor in the Grass - the amazing chemistry between Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty , and a real tearjerker.
Last Tango in Paris - marlon brando!! woohoo!
Shoot the Piano Player - my fave french new wave movie
Guns of Navarone - ok i'm a big fan of male-buddy movies too...
Silk Stockings - the 1950's remake of Ninotchka but with CHYD CHARISSE!!!
Million dollar Mermaid - there is only ONE esther williams and this is the only esther williams movie u need to watch. gorgeous sets.
other great classics-
To Catch a Thief
Rear Window
Charade

Cool thread! I love classics and musicals! For Jean Seberg fans I suggest Bonjour Tristesse. Lovely movie! The scenery is just amazing! Also A Summer Place.

Das Kabinett! And if you choose that route, you must also experience Nosferatu and Metropolis, and any film featuring Theda Bara.

I'm glad you mentioned this movie! It's one of those underrated movies that I love and can't afford to miss everytime it's on TV.

Although it's really, really hard to get classic DVDs over here, from what I've seen I love :

Sunset Boulevard (1950)
My first black and white movie! With William Holden and the superb Gloria Swanson.

Leave Her to Heaven (1945)
Gene Tierney at her best. Devilishly stunning too!

Camille (1936)
This movie is fast becoming my favourite. Greta Garbo's performance transcends my expectations and Robert Taylor is

Cover Girl (1944)
An endearing musical that introduced me to both Rita Hayworth and Gene Kelly. One of my favourite pick-me-up movies.

On the Waterfront (1954)
See Marlon Brando manifacture the acme of brilliant acting by an actor

Mr Deeds Goes to Town (1936)
This movie is light-hearted and too cute, starring Gary Cooper and Jean Arthur. See my signature!

Waterloo Bridge (1940)
Of all Vivien Leigh movies I've seen, I like her best here. And together with Robert Taylor, they make a beautiful couple in a splendid but tragic romance

East of Eden (1955)
An underrated gem with James Dean in his debut. A poignant and unforgettable movie.

A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
Maybe I've watched this movie many many times because Brando was hot in it, haha, but Vivien Leigh stole the show for me. I can memorize almost all the lines

A Place in the Sun (1951)
Of course, Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor. Do I need to say more?

Maybe you should try Amazon, most of her movies are there on DVD except for Son of Fury. If you buy Laura, there's a special feature on the Gene Tierney A&E Biography which is pretty interesting.

I believe that movie is called "Indiscreet"
