Are there any fans of old classic movies(any language) here. I am a big fan and would love to hear from others who share the same interest.

I like a lot of classic movies both hollywood & some bollywood.

top faves:

Captain's couragous-great story and acting by the kid & Spencer Tracy as a Cape Cod fisherman

Boystown-based on a true story. Again Spencer Tracy shines as father Flannigan

the thin man series- mystery/detective & comedy rolled up into one, fabulous! gave us the line "I think I'll get out of these wet clothes and into a dry martini"

African queen- great acting by two of the best Bogart & Hepburn

maltese falcon-another great whodunit with Bogart

12 angry men-Henry Fonda at his best, filmed almost entirely in one room, good moral delima

His girl friday- funny as can be, Cary Grant is suave & the one liner zingers!

Mother India-classic Bollywood film with all emotions packed into one flick

The first Godfather was really good, did't care much for the other two. I hope it isn't a classic yet, it was made in my life time! =)

Great! Btw, Casablanca : I guess it has the song "I thought I fell in love with you, watching casablanca.." (not sure if the words are right) . Right?

Raj-

the good, the bad & the Ugly is a awesome spaghetti western. Though they are not classic yet, I also like the Pink Panther series(slapstick Peter Sellers comedy as inspector), The Party(again Peter Sellers destroying a Hollywood director's house party), Charlie & the chocolate factory- based on a great children's book. Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka is amazing, great songs as well. (plus anything else Gene Wilder has done), the Jerk(standard Steve Martin slapstick comedy) & Fiddler on the Roof(great musical about a village Jewish community in pre-bolshevik revolution Russia & a fine example of MGM in the musical heyday era where Bollywood took some cues from. Topol is wonderful as the lead role)

You guys haven't been touched by a "classic" until you've watched:
The Seven Samurai, by Akira Kurosawa.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned "2001: A Space Odyssey" yet 馃槢

2001 was a good flick, however not his best. Another one I left out was Dr. Strangelove, also a good movie. very funny with a dark look at warfare.

hmm, I guess instead of just posting the names (although its good!) how about sharing what you liked about the movie?

OK Biggie, you got it! Went back and added some info. You are right that makes more sense than just listing names.

The latest movie i watched was The Lawrence of Arabia. Great acting by both Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole. The rest are also marvelous. The direction is pretty good.
