I'm just stepping into this thread (haven't had a chance to read through it all yet) so this movie may have been mentioned earlier, but...The classic holiday film, "White Christmas" is one of my all time favourites. It's a movie that I never tire of seeing, and which adds something extra festive to the holidays for me

Dug up this old thread as I was thinking of 'Walking Tall", the 1973 original.
And 'The Best Years of Our Lives". And "Platoon". I don't know why. Maybe because I don't watch very many oldies, but was watching the 1939, 'Hunchback of Notre Dame" this morning and started thinking of some of these old ones.
(I just knew we had to have a thread somewhere on this!)

Well DH said that the movie I thought was called The Godfather wasn't what it was called . Ok ..... you guys help me out here. It was a story of Italian families......a boy ended up working for an Italian Mob Boss.....well shoot they all are pretty much like that.....ummmmm ....he ended up making a lot of money and they took him in as one of the family. There was the scene where he was older and they were having a poker game and one of them was a real whacko and ended up shooting a younger boy that was serving drinks in the foot. And this same guy that did the shooting later on shot a guy in the bar because he made fun of him....thus killing him. This guy was ultimately killed by the others as he was out of control. Shoot.....I was certain it was The Godfather but I guess he may be right as we were looking at several different ones and I thought we'd chose it.

Oh and there was a robbery and they weren't suppose to spend any of the money on extravegant things and one of the guys bought his girl a new mink coat.
You're thinking of "Goodfellas" with Joe Pesce and Ray Liotta. Great movie but nothing compares to my all time favorite "Godfather parts 1 & 2." This movie is 27 years oldso it could qualify for an old movie. "Casino" again with Joe Pesce and Robert DiNiro is a wonderfully violent oldie. The cut versions of these movies just don't make it.

Two other big favorites are "Twelve Angry Men" one of the best of the real oldies, with a superb cast, have seen it 14 times, can't get enough and "The Heiress" with Olivia DeHavland (sp?) and Montgomery Clift. Turner Classic Movies does the best of the old movies so look for these two. And I agree that
"The Great Escape" another superb all star cast is the very best of the war type movies. I think I know every word by heart.

"It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert------caused quite a stir 'cause Clark Gable appeared in his t-shirt.......still funny to this day

"Witness for the Prosecution" with Charles Laughton, Marlene Dietrich, and Tyrone Power.......a whodunit that will keep you on the edge of your seats and superbly acted

Goodfellas was great! I am ashamed to say I still haven't watched Godfather!
