1. A Star Is Born (1954)

How Judy Garland didn't get an Oscar for this incredible performance, I really don't know. James Mason's performance was also great. Truly a beautiful movie, with amazing songs, of course, delivered by The Worl's Greatest Entertainer.

2. The Clock (1945)

One of Judy's 3 nonsinging roles, out of her 32 films, and an amazing one at that! I love this movie! They had great chemistry. Judy could do it all. :) Robert Walker makes you love him as you watch this and his other films.

The Major and the Minor Trailer
Ginger is one of my favorite actresses ever, which is one of the reasons I decided to watch it. Boy, am I glad I did! Her performance was great, so was that pf Ray Milland and the other cast.The story is just really adorable and great, and I really loved this movie.

4. City Lights (1931)

My 2nd silent movie of all time and I absolutely loved it. I had heard talk of Chaplin's brilliance but its mere level is mystifying.

7. Young Tom Edison (1940)

I think one of the most overlooked/underrated actors from the past is Mickey Rooney and it amazes me because he is an incredible actor. He recieved a Best Actor Oscar nomination when he was only 18! I consider him a brilliant actor, and she's just so cute! :) A great movie!

James Cagney is as always, amazing. Love seeing him singing and dancing, insted of being the gangster he was in most of his other movies.

12. It Happened One Night (1934)

Few people can beat Clark Gable in my book, and this movie is one of the reasons why. I didn't really like Claudette Colbert, but she won me over with this movie. Just wonderful.

Lucy and Desi, especially Lucy, were what made me start watching classic movies. They're funny, they're beautiful, and the movie is great.

37. Gothika (2003)

ROBERT DOWNEY JR. = heaven. Aside from that, I thought this was a good thriller. It had bits of horror splotched into it, which is as close as I'll get to watching a horror movie, for now.

38. Hairspray (2007)

If you cant't tell, I like musicals. I love Michelle Pfeiffer. I also like Queen Latifah and John Travolta. A bit of James Marsden never hurt a girl either, :D. A cute movie, with great songs and a touching story line, I thought.
