Windows 7: Favorite Classic Movie

Favorite Classic Movie

I realize that many of you tend to think of old movies as being less interesting than modern movies with all of the action and method acting that they have, but even though I have found a few good modern movies, I tend to much prefer the old classics.

Maybe it is because I'm just an old folgie, but I'm wondering if there are any others here like me...not the old folgie part, but that that have similar tastes, if so, what is your favorite movie? Mine is one starring Gary Cooper and Susan Hayward, titled "Garden Of Evil" (1954). There is a bit of violence at the end of the movie, but it is the part leading up to it that makes it good.

I'm with you Seekermeister, my Grandmother raised me on 40s and 50s movies.

I couldn't pick one movie outright though I've narrowed it down to my 3 favs (in no particular order);

Key Largo (1948)

Force of Evil (1948)

12 Angry men (1957)

p5bdkw,

I have to admit that part of the reason that I posted this thread, is to give me ideas on movies to add to my library. "Return to Paradise - Gary Cooper" particularly caught my eye, simply because I like Gary Cooper so much, but eBaying it, the cheapest that I found was ~$35, which is more than I will pay. I then found it at Amazon, for ~$20, which I would consider, but I didn't like the footnote to their ad:

Quote:

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
I then Googled on, and found some download sites, but they were all torrents, which I don't care for either, so it may be a while before I get to see it.
