I find myself watching TCM (Turner Classic Movies) more than any other channel on the television. A lot of the newer movies have to keep your attention with special effects and explosions and all kinds of razzle dazzle. The older movies keep your attention with good ole story telling. If you don’t ever take time to consider an old movie or just don’t know what to consider I can give you a couple of suggestions. By watching these terrific films you keep them alive. In most cases they have more to offer than any film made today.
Night of the Hunter:
North by Northwest:
Cool Hand Luke:
A Face in the Crowd:
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre:
This is a good start. Like I said before these have more on the ball than anything out there.
