I love discovering hidden gems of cinema, so I've complied a list of movies which have fallen under the radar which I feel deserve more attention.

Most of them are old classics as that's how I role, but I've included some modern films too.

Spies Like Us and Three Amigos, hell yeah!

Whoa! I'm honoured that you used my ecstatic post-watch comments on "Gun Crazy" here. You've got plenty of good choices, along with a few opinions I don't quite agree with, as is usually the case with us =).

I think I'd be the one leading the angry mob with pitchforks and torches for your "Sleuth" comment =).

I loved the '30s "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" too much to watch a re-make, even it stars favourites of mine like Tracy and Bergman. "The Petrified Forest" was really good, but I find Leslie Howard to be a bit of a wuss. =P

I've got "Mister Roberts", "High Sierra", "The Major and the Minor" and a few more of these all queued up for a future watch, but I'm saving them because I expect greatness and some things are better if you wait for them.

Nice to see some Barbara Stanwyck pictures on here. I tried to watch "The Bitter Tea of General Yen" on Youtube, but the quality was so crappy that I gave up. You've inspired me to track down a pristine copy that I'll probably be getting to in the near future. I enjoyed "Ball of Fire", although I found the other characters besides Stanwyck and Cooper a little irritating.

I love that you included "The Incredible Shrinking Man". Truly a sci-fi masterpiece - I was shocked by how philosophically deep and brilliantly shot it was.

Jean Harlow looks so amazing in colour, I wish she'd been around long enough to star in more colour movies. =(

Nice to see Go West, Paper Moon, Three Amigos, and The War of the Roses on here. And especially glad to see some appreciation thrown toward Hudson Hawk, a film I've always loved & found unfairly hated. Sure it's flawed but it's so much fun for me that I don't care.

Meet John Doe, a great movie is often overlooked behind Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Mr. Deeds Goes To Town. One of my personal favorites is "Contact," - a movie I can watch over and over.

Wonderful list. Many of these are now in my watchlist.
Now I must comment about Michael Caine in 1972. I think he didn't give the second best performance of Oscar nominees that year. O'Toole in "The ruling class" is one of the great performances of cinema, it's a shame it was in same year as Vito Corleone. Speaking of which, Ruling class is my suggestion for the list (if you take suggestions).
Some others could be: The underworld story, Pursued, Tension, The public eye, Warlock, Sudden fear, Murder by contract, The big clock, Deadline - USA, Kill me again, Portrait of Jennie, Night moves, In the company of men, Blast of silence, Dead reckoning, Bunny Lake is missing, Straight time, Camille, A Canterbury tale...

This is an amazing list. There are a lot of movies here that I really want to see, especially since you recommend them. Thanks!

Mutiny on the Bounty may not be so well known now, but it did at least win the Best Picture Oscar. The Band Wagon is wonderful. Here's my Hidden Treasures list : http://www.listal.com/list/hidden-treasures
