    Surprised that nobody mentioned the Bourne Trilogy. I'm going to watch them all again( and probably again and again and again) so that I'm ready for Bourne Legacy.

    I would go for the old Hitchcock movies like the rope and the trouble with Harry, also, Dracula is pretty good.

    A Streetcar Named Desire! It's an excellent movie and Marlon Brando is gorgeous (as is Vivian Leigh)

    Gone With the Wind if you haven't already seen it.

    Roman Holiday is awesome.

    To Kill a Mockingbird.

    Calamity Jane.

    I think School for Scoundrels was released around then. Classic, classic movie. Also look up some Marx Brothers stuff and the "Road to" movies.

    Zodiac - 2007 by David Fincher is one of the best movies ever. For anyone who is interested in true crime i would highly recommend it. Not a slasher but just a superbly crafted thriller that perfectly captures the essence of 1960s/70s America.

    It also has one helluva soundtrack =)

    I definitely recommend Dead Poet's Society - Really shocking ending to the storyline and Robin Williams is just awesome throughout.

    Out of interest, has anyone ever seen Good Morning Vietnam? I'm tempted to try it because I've heard some good reviews.

    Kubrick can do no wrong! (well, not any more, obviously :rip: ).

    I was fortunate enough to meet his wife, Christiane, in 2010 as I was organising a performance of 2001: A Space Odyssey with a live orchestra at the Southbank Centre. We also had Dan Richter (the guy who played Moonwatcher). It was incredible.
