    M (1931), King Kong (1933) and The 39 Steps (1935) are the three oldest films in my collection.

    For me it's In Which We Serve (1942) an excellent naval film written, directed & starring Noel Coward.

    The Johnny Weissmuller Tarzen boxset - all filmed in the 30s. Bought the US version but see it's now available over here @ half the price.

    Amazon have Volume 2 out now also.

    Great films! :thumbsup:

    For me it seems to be 'Animal Crackers' - 1930. But I don't have all of my collection in DVDProfiler yet so there may be older ones lurking....

    You've made my day. This is one of the last VHS to DVD rips I'd been holding on to while waiting for a DVD release. A gem of a movie! :thumbsup:

    Don't know why you think it pre-dates Disney though. By the time of its release (1941) Disney had over two-hundred shorts and four full length animated features under his belt.

    I bought the 4 disc set of Ben Hur, which includes the 1925 version! I did buy it mainly for the Charlton Heston one, but the original was also a big consideration. Does this count?

    I bought 14 Marx Brothers movies a couple of months ago (I love them!), the oldest one seems to be Animal Crackers made in 1930 - it's a cracker as well! :smashin:

    I love silent movies with newly-recorded (DD 5.1) soundtracks :thumbsup:
