¿Favorite Silver Screen Classic Films?

Since my passions are gastronomy, wine and travel, within each of these genres, are classic films of all times ... and thus, my all time fave film is:
Casablanca ... I have seen it in original English version uncountable times, and on Spanish and Italian TV, they show it every 6 months ... amongst other great classics ...
Margi.

Shirley Temple movies,Follow me Boys,where the red fern grows are on the top shelf.

My all time favorite Classic is probably Captains Couragous.

I have Casablnca in my DVD collection. It is one of my favorites!

I'll have to watch it in Spanish with subtitles a few times. I have modest Spanish skills but I think on repeated viewing I could get it, particularly if I have subtitles to clue me in.

I would rate Casablanca as one of the best 10 movies for all time, and certainly one of my own best 10 movies.

Anything Hitchcock! And how about Busby Berkeley? (Yeah of course you have to turn down the sound and play some heavy metal... Preferably Metallica....)
