    I recently viewed an old classic again after many years- that one with all the birds.

    To Kill a Mockingbird. With Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch.

    While it was good, I felt this time around that Atticus seriously stuffed up the defence by having a go at all the white people for racism.

    I love the 1930s Busby Berkeley musicals with their amazing choreography: 42nd Street, Gold Diggers of 1933 and Dames

    Sorry to quote myself, but this is worth it. Just like the original, only 30 years later, 3 min long and no Ferrari.

    Lots of familiar ones in the previous comments and I've enjoyed quite a few of them over the years.I also love to watch some of the very old classics such as Goodbye Mr Chips(original version)The Dambusters, BoysTown and a couple of Spencer Tracy's other ones when and if they are occasionally dug up and shown either very late at night or very early in the morning.

    I've enjoyed many films by Akira Kurosawa.
    He is best known in the West for the Seven Samurai which is a fabulous film.
