    Wizard of Oz. But only up to the end of the tornado.





    Is that OK, Mal? ;)







    I was also surprised to see all the color movies listed. Many people only reply to a thread title.

    I'd have to say either the original House on Haunted Hill, with Vincent Price, or maybe Arsenic and Old Lace - laughed my arse off at that one

    those are what Bling (OP) wanted, old Black and White movies.

    for some reason a lot of people didn't actually read the thread or even read the very first post and instead started posting Color movies from the 70's and stuff.

    You're posting exactly what Bling was asking for. Good, Old, Black and White movies.

    Pretty bad when people can't even read the very first post in a thread and find out what the thread is actually about.

    How about movie "shorts" like The Three Stooges? These were some of the hardest working, hilarious, most talented actors in the business who never got the credit they deserved, IMO. Long-lived too- The Stooges made short movies and a few feature films starting in the early 1930's and Larry/Moe continued to work as stooges after Curly died, all the way up to about 1969. Slapstick comedy is really something you don't see too much of today. It's really funny to watch these, you can buy their whole collection of shorts on DVD.
