Classic Icons Must-See Film List- Add Yours!
I have been reading all the threads about old hollywood actresses, so now im really interested in movies from that era...besides the obvious movies like casablanca, gone with the wind and breakfast at tiffany's, I have no idea what movies to see! anyone feel like helping me out with the name of old (b/w or colour), 1910-1945 movies that you have seen and would recommend to me? Non-english movies (with subtitles) are also okay with me thanks in advance chicas!

I edited the title and pinned this so that it would get seen by everyone in here You can expand your list to fit this entire Icon subforum. Just remember, must be pre-1980's.

Bringing up Baby - Katharine Hepburn is just perfect in this

Metropolis is a silent film, but definitely worth seeing in my opinion.

The original King Kong

Anna Karenina starring Greta Garbo

Laura - one of my favourite films ever and starring the most beautiful woman to ever grace the screen
