Great list of so many amazing movies. Best purchase I ever made when I was younger was a box of unknown VHS tapes. 2 dollars for 50 musicals. It made my 10 year old self's day and introduced me to the joy of Hollywood from the 30's to the 50's. I wish more people could appreciate these marvelous films.
