You will love "The Grapes of Wrath" with Henry Fonda. Afterwards, read the book.

Almost anything by Alfred Hitchcock. Start with Psycho or Rear Window.

Much of Orson Welles' early work, e. g. Citizen Kane and The Third Man.

Let's see if we can get Lightwizard here; he used to work in the industry.

When Lightwizard was a college student, he worked on the technical crew for the classic 1956 film, "The Day the Earth Stood Still". That movie is considered one of the top ten science fiction films of all time.

Here're my personal top 10, mostly from the 1940s and 50s (some later)

Casablanca (possibly the best of all time)
Citizen Kane (a close 2nd and Orson Welles at his best)
Sunset Boulevard (the best Hollywood movie about Hollywood ever made)
High Noon (for me, the finest Western ever made)
Saving Private Ryan (finest WW II film)
The Maltese Falcon (another Bogart flick and possibly the best private eye flick of all time)
Chinatown (nearly perfect script; Jack Nicholson in top form; almost rivals Maltese Falcon)
Shindler's List (awesome)
A Man for All Seasons (how to make Tudor England seem not only fascinating but actually relevant)
An American in Paris (best musical)
Singin' in the Rain (best musical)

Ok, ok, so that's 11 not 10. I can't decide which one is my favorite musical.

@Merry Andrew,
I'll add three Hitchcock favorites to that list: Psycho, Rear Window and Vertigo.

My list of favorite movies I consider classics (not necessarily in order of favoribility)

Casablanca is a rite of passage - everybody needs to see it at least once.
Gone With the Wind
Grapes of Wrath
Ditto all the Hitchcock movies
The Postman Always Rings Twice
Arsenic and Old Lace
The Wizard of Oz

More moderns to become classics:
The Jazz Singer (Neil Diamond)
My Cousin Vinny
The James Bond series
Driving Miss Daisy
On Golden Pond
Steel Magnolias
Open Range
A Few Good Men

And the musicals:
The Sound of Music
The King and I
Oklahoma (the original)
(possibly) Evita

Theres lots and lots more but these are off the top of my head without even thinking about it.
