The Great Dictator (1940):
What could be more urgently timely than immoderate 1940 comedy in which Charlie Chaplin like legend hilariously highlighting fascist dictators generally, Adolf Hitler specifically, Nazi beliefs, and antisemitism?

It has been almost 82 years of praise to amazing phrases such as “lions, tiger, and bears,” “there’s no place like home,” and “we’re not in Kansas anymore” – to opine nothing of the enduring musical impressions of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “If I Only Had a Brain/Heart.”
Westerns have not such more iconic than Stagecoach, which supports the catapult, John Wayne, into super-stardom, and the whole plot along with the protagonist. Another titan of this genre is John Ford, who directs the frozen tale of a group of strangers thrown together for a harmful journey through the Old West.
Cabaret is a stunning movie musical that still has enormous power to jar out of self-approval with its boldness and brilliance.

North by Northwest:
Even in the eldest classic movies, it can be permitted to modern acceptability standards, general entertainment, and pacing – but Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest is not at all like them.
