100 Old Classics That You NEED To See! Welcome To The Golden Era.

Following on from my most recent post, I decided to take it upon myself to assemble a list of some the most considerable films from the last century. I wanted to only include films dating between the 1920’s – 1960’s to really highlight the authenticity of glamour that the studio system of this time had previously produced. A sincere list of the suitably named golden era.

Some incorporated are particular favorites of my own, and others are included from my grandparents and parents most beloved films. I hope some of these recommendations find a place in a person’s heart, who wouldn’t be as likely to try out an older film. The productions below will make you laugh, make you cry, will shock you with the absence of political correctness, and may certainly make you cringe.

Journey back to one of the most glamorous eras of motion picture with me…
