People tend to dislike old films simply in terms of their technical quality, but many of the classics resonate in our hearts today. Whether it be the fan-favorite adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, or a Hitchcock thriller, many of the best films to date are the classics we all sometimes love to hate.
Music geeks love to watch 1964’s A Hard Day’s Night to commemorate legendary British phenomenon, the Beatles. The ‘50s and ‘60s were musicals galore- with Singin’ in the Rain (1952), Mary Poppins (1964), and The Sound of Music (1965).
Disney made its animated debut with Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937), and Fantasia (1940) was another magical adventure. Anyone can appreciate a Hepburn classic, like Roman Holiday (1953), Sabrina (1954), and my personal favorite, Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961). Another thrilling drama is To Kill a Mockingbird (1962), based off of one of the most important pieces of American literature.
With these options and more, it’s easy to see that an “oldie but goodie” is not as bad as you think it might be!
