The African Queen
Citizen Kane
Casablanca
The Seven Samurai
Rebel Without a Cause


Those are just a few that I can think of that are on my "must watch" list but there are plenty more too.

Strangers on a Train is a classic movie that is filled with suspense and intrigue. Its worth borrowing from your local public library in the meanwhile.

You need a good laugh too. Anything with the Marx Brothers or W. C. Fields is good. If you want something newer then Planes Trains and Automobiles. LOL.

Some of  my favorite old movies are Scarface, Godfather, Taxi Driver.  All three great movies IMO.

I always think of Steve McQueen movies. They are my favorites. Papillon, Bullitt, The Great Escape and others. He was hot! LOL

The spagetti westerns of Clint Eastwood such as A Few Dollars More, The Good the bad and the Ugly, or just about any of the old John Wayne movies.  If you want war movies try Blackhawk Down or Saving Private Benjamin.  Science Fiction movies the Star Trek movies or Star Wars.  Romantic movies Your on your own cause I just don't follow those.

Im curious where one would even get theses.  Granted you can do Netflixs, but especially if you are trying for marathon IDK if that's possible.  Many of the rental video stores have closed in my area.  Redbox just doesn't carry such titles.

Yeah, Steve McQueen is one of my favorite actors. The Great Escape is a fantastic movie.
My favorite classic movie is Ben Hur, with Charlton heston, but it is very long, almost 4 hours, so I don't know if you'd be interested in that. A couple of good westerns are The Magnificent Seven (Steve McQueen), and High Noon (Gary Cooper).
