Vintage Film Suggestion Thread
Thought I would start this thread because I don't want to continue flooding the 2018 Movie thread with my requests for good older films to watch.

Not sure what years we should be concentrating on but probably pre 1980 would be a good place to start.

I am a major film fan and adore old films with the Hollywood greats of the past and to me they are far better than most of the dross served up these days so any suggestions plant them here and I'll try and get round to watching them and hopefully others too will benefit.

Obviously there are plenty of classics so it's not so much The Great Escape or Spartacus which most of us must have seen but any suggestions of hidden gems or forgotten classics would be appreciated.

Here are some of my suggestions that are must watch if you like the old films.

Hitchcock classics such as Psycho, The Birds, Vertigo, Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Frenzy, To Catch a Thief and my all time favourite film Rear Window. Plenty of others I know and am slowly making my way through.

Others are Day The Earth Stood Still (the old one!), Angels With Dirty Faces, The Bishops Wife, Cape Fear (Mitchum/Peck), It's a Wonderful Life, Hound of the Baskervilles (Cushing/Lee) and if you like classic cheesy horrors the likes of The Beast Must Die, Horror Express, The Vault of Horror and Dr Terror's House of Horrors are worth a watch.

Obviously plenty more but that's a start.

Great film, great soundtrack. Amazing footage of Stratford and North Grenwich etc in 1960s. All characters played by non-actors. "Like Italian neo-realism with better haircuts"

Evening dress and death in a French garden are infinitely more fun and odd.

Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources are rather good if you want to swank to your woman about how au fait you are with foreign language films. They are both rather sweet, the first is quite funny and she will probably suck your cock in the hope that your spunk is as good for the brains as the fish it smells like is supposed to be.

Theres a French film I saw in the cinema as a b movie in the early 70s calked Un Flic that mesmerised me as a kid. A few years back I tried to work out what it was and eventually found it. Great heist movie. Very atmospheric.

Capricorn One is brilliant and All The Presidents Men whilst a tad slow is excellent. The Parallax View starts really well but gets a bit weird and The Conversation is one I have on the list.

Jane Birkin...ummm

“Alfie” was on Sky Movies last night. What a film and how wonderful did London look back then.
