Favorite Movie Pre-1950

15 posts in this topic

My favorite pre-1950 move is The Adventures of Robin Hood , a 1938 American swashbuckler film starring Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland, Basil Rathbone, and Claude Rains.

Gonna have to go with "Gone with the Wind" but "Stagecoach", "The Virginian", "High Noon", "Northwest Mounted Police" and "White Heat" are real close..

High Noon was a cracking film. Do 'shorts' count? Good. In which case, I'll have to have Laurel and Hardy's  'The Music Box'.

My favorites are the Hitchcock films - Rear Window, Vertigo, Rope, The Man Who Knew Too Much. Plus Mr Smith goes to Washington. I think I've seen Rear Window at least a dozen times. Check out this Rear Window time lapse.

I like the film noir genre. Cynical detectives, smart-mouthed babes, lies, deceit, mayhem. They come on every once in awhile on TCM. Key Largo, Maltese Falcon, The Third Man, etc.

I know this is a pre 1950s thread, but this 2005 movie, Brick, is a big fat homage to film noir.

It looks good, I'll have to download it. Thanks. Another great semi-recent film noir movie was "Body Heat". William Hurt and a then-very-sexy Kathleen Turner.
