Top Must-See Classic Movies of All Time

By Mrs. G.

I am an avid movie watcher.  I have to say that I still mourn the closing of our last neighborhood video store.  To me, there was nothing better than browsing the video store shelves, finding those hidden treasures and happily heading home for a night of story-telling.  It seems today, cable channels and red rental boxes only offer the most popular choices, and I find it frustrating how hard it is to find those hidden gems.  Here, I share with you a list of classic hidden gems that are must-see!
#1 - Casablanca
This beloved 1942 romance stars Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
#2 - The Shawshank Redemption
This life-affirming story stars Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman as two jailed prisoners who strike up a friendship.
#3 - The Godfather
Francis Ford Coppola’s operatic Mafia series stars Marlon Brando and Al Pacino.

This 1939 star-studded Civil War movie finds Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh entangled in a fiery love affair.

#6 - Schindler’s List
A Spielberg masterpiece, this wrenching drama about Nazi Germany stars Liam Neeson and is based on true events.
#7 - It’s a Wonderful Life
