Going with the revised title of the thread Favorite Old Movies (not gangster or necessarily romance), these are a few Old Movies I enjoyed:
The Postman Always Rings Twice (original version with Lana Turner)
42nd Street (Any Busby Berkley flicks, also Zigfeld Follies)
Strangers on a Train
Rear Window - ALL of Hitchcock's films
Top Hat - All the Fred & Ginger flicks
Now Voyager - Most of Bette Davis' flicks
Bridge on the River Kwai
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington - Most of Jimmy Stewart's flicks
Anything with Henry Fonda - i.e. Grapes of Wrath
To Kill A Mockingbird
Old Esther Williams' flicks - for the swimming choreography
In Cold Blood
The Onion Field (yep, Ted Danson was in that one)
All About Eve
Casablanca - classic - & most of Bogie's flicks
I'll Cry Tomorrow - Susan Hayward
The Lost Weekend (Ray Milland)
Days of Wine & Roses & The Apartment (Jack Lemmon sp)
A Place in the Sun (Elizabeth Taylor & Montgomery Clift, Shelly Winters)
I Confess (Montgomery Clift)
Dances with Wolves
Rebel Without a Cause
Splendor in the Grass
Witness For The Prosecution - Marlene Dietrich
The flick with Marcello Mastriani - where the man and woman were stranded on a desert Island & couldn't stand each other, LOL - Can't think of the name at the moment. The 'remake' with Harrison Ford & Ann Hesche, was the pits, IMO.
Re Breakfast At Tiffany's - I never 'got it' (plot line etc.), or found it enjoyable -- perhaps because I saw it as a kid. I did find Ms. Hepburn's performances far more enjoyable in My Fair Lady and Wait Until Dark.
Sure there are many more I'll probably think of later.
