as a gift... Gone With the wind or Hitchcock's 39 Steps .
For me... Easy Rider.
Forbiden Planet is the oldest in my collection
Singin' in the Rain (1952).
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.
'Oh Mr. Porter' is a fantastic film. Laugh a minute!
It certainly is, as are most Will Hay films.
When the hell is someone going to release Where's That Fire? on dvd??
Yeah, love this one like most of Will's films.
Henry V - 1945, Laurence Olivier at his finest.
"Now is the winter of our discontent"
Re Will Hay. Read this about his private life.
Sounds like the stuff his on screen persona would spout.
All the best
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.
Without looking through all the dvd's in the house it think ours is Jason and The Argonauts 1963
Matter Of Lie And Death 1946 classic
Da Dah Dah
'Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari' 1920
'Bronenosets Potyomkin' 1925
'The Finishing Touch' 1928
'Un Chien Andalou' 1929
'Double Whoopee' 1929
'The Dentist' 1932
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!
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!
correct dont know what I was thinking of. It is a lovely film though
Nibelungen (Siegfried + Kriemhild's Revenge), Fritz Lang 1924
I love silent movies with newly-recorded (DD 5.1) soundtracks
