    It took me months but eventually I managed to by on DVD all the way from Australia, made over 60 years ago by Dave Fliescher.......

    Hoppity Goes to Town.

    It pre dates Walt Disney and is a wonderful film for you kids.
    I believe it is going to be re-released this year.

    Metropolis is the oldest, although this was a freebie from a newspaper. So my next in line would be my Hitchcock Box Set with 14 of his greatest movies. :smashin:

    I've got nosferatu as well I'd forgotten about that one.
    also I got the creature from the black lagoon and the original mummy with boris karloff as a two disc set.
    I really must go through my collection and sort out any of the dvds I still haven't watched years after buying them ! :)

    That reminds me, forgot about my Universal Horror Boxset with all the classics from the 30s as well as busts of Frankenstein, Dracula and the wolf man. I too haven't got round to watching any of them yet.

    Hi,

    Fritz Lang's Metropolis (whcih Brian_S mentioned), but I also own the region 1 edition of "The Good Old Naughty Days" which has material from the early part of the 1910's and 20's on it. Good documentary/film too! :)

    DW Griffith's The Birth Of A Nation (1915)
    The Kid (1921) and a few other Chaplin films
    Nosferatu (1922)
    Blue Angel (1930)

    I probably have a few more, but these are the ones I can remember at the moment.

    The Wizard of Oz (1939). If it had'nt been for Gone With The Wind that film would have swept the board at the Oscar's.

    I love these movies much and prefer them to the newer SH.

    So much tension. Each one a classic. :smashin:
