Gunga Din is a great flick.(1939)
Ben Hur- if it hasn't already been listed by NOD
To Hell and Back with real American hero Audie Murphy
Pic Sigs are for losers.
BTW, I'd love to see everyone's suggestions, particularly up to the 70's. Though I omitted a number of movies in my collection (mainly the romances, some obscure foreigns, and musicals, as I figured thrillers, action, western, mystery/suspense, war, and film noir would probably have the broadest appeal), I know that there are all kinds of others out there that I don't have yet.
Hell, I'd love to see trator's list.
My current goal is getting all the Criterion Collection films, and I'm making progress, but I know just from conversations with my father (who was born in '44) that there are all kinds of classics that I'm missing -- ones that may not have been up for awards, or been done by famous directors.

"If they move, kill 'em!"
William Holden is the absolute baddest of asses.
On that note, NOD probably mentioned it, but Sunset Boulevard is a must.
I actually didn't mention Sunset Boulevard, as I thought it might be a little melodramatic for canyoneroooo. But it's a great movie, and in my collection.
Sullivan's Travels is an under appreciated classic I haven't seem mentioned.
Eh, I feel like Holden's sarcastic badassery more than makes up for any melodrama concerns.
Yep, Sunset Boulevard is amazing. William Holden is a beast in that, too.
One that N.O.D. missed for 1950 is a personal favorite of mine. A gritty noir classic, "The Asphalt Jungle," with Marilyn Monroe, Sam Jaffe (who would star in The Day The Earth Stood Still, a year later), and HOF Sterling Hayden (General Jack Ripper in Dr. Strangelove!)
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Sunset Boulevard, Stalag 17, Sabrina, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Wild Bunch, Network
Yea that was pretty stellar.
The best part of it is that it's just as good or better after like 20 rewatches.
willbo you inspired me to watch the breakfast club... good stuff
Now I'm trying Sixteen Candles.
I think I was meant to be born in 1979.
Sixteen Candles is best for those of us who were born mid-70's.
No yankie my wankie = poetry
I thought you were much older.
sorry to disappoint...
Hoppers performance alone is iconic. It is ONE of Lynch's masterpieces. Mulholland Dr. is at least as good, but actually probably surpasses it.
Movies from the 80's NOD missed....
Tender Mercies (83)
The King of Comedy (83)
Dangerous Liaisons (88)
The Verdict (82)
House of Games (87)
Casualties of War (89)
Crimes and Misdemeanors (89)
Atlantic City (80)
Evil Dead 2 (87) He listed the first one, but the second is the superior movie.
The Fly (86)
Little Shop of Horrors (86)
Little Mermaid (89)
The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (88)
Stranger than Paradise (84)
Risky Business (83)

The funny thing is with all the famous movies I HAVEN'T seen...this was one of my favorite movies as a young kid.
Don't trust NOD or you'll be watching shit like Out of Africa.
I liked The Air Up There!! Same thing?
Out of Africa isn't about basketball? Is Kevin Bacon in it at least?
If you're looking for Bacon
you would be mistaken.
But Redford and Streep
will put you to sleep.
