user picture Christie: Great list! Like to see I am not the only TCM enthusiast under 50. I recommend 'High Society' ('56) with Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly; 'The Bishop's Wife' (1947) with Cary Grant and Loretta Young; 'Rebecca' (1940) with Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine, dir. by Hitchcock; 'Lovers and Other Strangers' (1970)with no one I know but a young Diane Keaton; and 'Wait Until Dark' (1967) with Audrey Hepburn. Let me know if you get a chance to see any of these, or have and your opinions! may 17 2009
user picture Bliss: I go to the TCM website and look at the monthly schedule and make a list of every movie I want to see and I do believe that The Bishop's Wife is on it!
user picture Nathalie: Singing in the Rain is a top notch musical. :D Have you seen 'Casablanca'? It's a classic that deserves to be on every top list, as well as 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'. mar 28 2011
user picture Bliss: I have seen pieces of both but not the full films yet! This list started out just as classics that I had seen on TCM channel but now it's just the classics I've seen in general. I hope to see them soon!
