    Casablanca. I've watched quite a few oldies but none of them have stuck with me as Casablanca has.

    There are so many from old Hollywood back when it seemed so regal and dreamy.

    A few:

    1. Wait Until Dark
    2. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
    3. Barefoot in the Park
    4. Wizard of Oz

    My all time favorite ever since I saw it on the big screen for the first time when it came back to theaters years ago. The small screen just doesn't do it justice.

    Its amazing how the 1952 low budget film "The Day the Earth Stood STill" is soooooo superior to this year high budget remake.

    Sunset Boulevard. Wilder was a genius.

    Casablanca has more memorable dialogue than any movie in history.

    Rick: I came to Casablanca for my health. I came to Casablanca for the waters.

    Inspector: Waters? What waters? We're in the desert.

    Rick: I was misinformed.


    I love the old musicals:

    Sunset Boulevard is a great movie. I watched it in one of my cinema classes. It's a weird one because it uses real, out-dated actors and calls them out on it which at the time was unheard of at time. Also Gloria Swanson was quoted as saying something along the lines of, "I'm as pure as the driven slush." I can't complain about a woman who is quoted for saying something like that.

    Bringing Up Baby is a fun screwball romance. I get a little agitated when I watch it, though. The antics Hepburn does throughout the film would drive me insane if it were to happen to me.

    Psycho and The Birds. Just some classy horror films. Nothing really says Noir like cross-dressing and murdering a woman while she's showering.
