The Silver Screen

Though I don't watch them as often as I used to now that I've lost TCM, I am indeed a big fan of the films of Old Hollywood. Here's a spot to highlight classic romances, dramas, noir, comedies, sci-fi, adventures, horror, silents, and whatever else in between. Admittedly they won't all belong to the "silver screen" since I'm just including pre-1970 movies and naturally many are in color. But I like the phrase so much I decided it'd be an ok title.
