What is your favorite classic movie? A movie from 20, 30, 40 years ago? What is it? I really like "The Sound of Music," "The Wizard of Oz," and "Bedknobs and Broomsticks."

Wow, that is very old-LOL. I t just seems strange that those movies are still popular today even though those movies are alot older than most of us here on Mylot. Old movies are great to watch though. So much culture of the certain time frame comes alive in them.

I have not seen the "Fiddler on the Roof" or "Pirates of Penzance." How old are those pictures? I am going to make a recommended must-see movies list and get right on it. The nice thing about most classic movies is that I can watch them with my children, who are young still.

The Pirates of Penzance I like was a 1983 film version featured Kevin Kline, Smith, Ronstadt, and Angela Lansbury. Fiddler On The Roof was made in 1971.

I love Angela Lansbury, especially in "Bedknobs and Broomsticks." Well, since she is in it, I will definitely have to take a look!

Wow, thank you for taking the time to list the characters and the actors names! My grandmother loves "Gone with the Wind." I sadly, have never seen it, but I have heard lots about it and know that it has to be a good one.

My favorite classic movie is 'White Christmas' with Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and I can't remember the other woman in the movie. Anyway, my family and I watch this every year at Christmas time. It is a tradition we started many years ago.

I have not seen this one either...well, I have seen bits of it I think, but not the whole way through. I love Christmas movies though, so around the holidays I will be watching it. :)

There's many. I absolutly agree with your choices, but there's also the classics like Breakfast as Tiffanys, 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, and Man from Snowy River. I know these movies seem too old for me to be into, but my mom really liked them and made us watch them when we were kids. So I grew to like them.

I watched the sound of music, it's great but I also want Chris Reeve's 'Somewhere in Time'. I have watched it the nth' time. I guess for me it is an immortal love story. I love it.

I have not seen "Somewhere in Time." In fact, I don't think I have ever heard of it! So I will add that to the must see list. "The Sound of Music" is just a great movie. It has been a favorite of mine since I was little.

Somewhere in Time is a great movie but keep a box of tissues close by when watching it. I cry every time I see it.

I *love* old movies! There's so many on my list that I like that I just go by who's in them anymore. I have almost all of the Marx Brothers movies plus Abbott & Costello, Three Stooges, and a complete collection of the old classic Universal horror movies. "Dracula" (1931)- Bela Lugosi, "Frankenstein" (1931)- Boris Karloff, "The Mummy" (1932)- Boris Karloff, "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935)- Boris Karloff & Elsa Lanchester, "Phantom of the Opera" (1943)- Claude Rains, "The Invisible Man" (1933)- Claude Rains, "The Wolf Man" (1941)- Lon Chaney Jr., and "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" (1954)- Richard Carlson & Julie Adams. I also like comedies, romances, musicals, dramas, and sometimes movies that are so bad, they're funny. One classic favorite is going to be on TV Saturday night, "The Ten Commandments" (1956)- Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, John Carridine.

I really like the Frankenstein movie with Gene Wilder in it. I would guess it is from the early 1960's? (Still in black and white.) Do you know which one I am talking about?

That's "Young Frankenstein" you're thinking of. It was made in 1974. Mel Brooks was the director and he did it in black & white on purpose, to imitate the old horror movies from the 1930's.

Oh ok, well taking a stab that Gene Wilder was in it, (wasn't Willy Wonka and the Choclate Factory from the late 1960's?) that is where my guess came from. That one is great-do you like it?
