Aedra's top 100 favorite classic movies: #100-51

Rate this Entry
Several of our fellow TATeurs who have previously posted lists of their favorite movies inspired me to try and compile my own list. I fully admit I'm obsessed with old movies, which started when I was about 13 years old with a movie that is my top 10, so I won't say what that movie is yet. I've seen more than I can count (and I have tried to count but I've given up that huge task for the time being). I'm always looking for new classics, so if anyone has recommendations, please tell me! My only rules for this list were that I've seen the movie at least twice and it was released before 1970. Here is the first half of my list and hopefully I'll get to my favorite movie in my avatar series sometime in the near future!

    I love this list and your selections, but some of these first 50 are waaaaaaaaaaaaay higher on my list, lol.

    And you've given me lots of great ideas for movies for my blog that I'm totally going to steal.

    Stealing in this context is all good. Your blog has given me lots of ideas, too.

    Good, I'm glad! I've decided that when this year is done, I'm going to update my top-some number list and start a new blog. Because as much as I'm loving watching all these movies for my blog, I know I'm sure as hell not going to renew the contract for another year. lol.
