What is vertigo?

2 12 Angry Men

Even if you made the movie today, not much would be different. Except for air conditioning, all electronics would be seized. This would be in my top 5 favorites of all-time. - westofohio

I have to agree with Matrixguy, this movie is great, just talking, but so interesting. - booklover1

3 Rear Window
4 Seven Samurai

What an amazing epic samurai movie by Akira Kurosawa

5 Ben-Hur

The first 11oscar winning movie a superb story - MatrixGuy

6 Some Like It Hot
7 Sunset Boulevard

This fantastic film is definitely deserving of being in the top 3. It really takes a look into the deep, dark visions and thoughts in the physchy. I thought it was just going to be a charming Hollywood film noir, well, placed in Hollywood. But it was the opposite. This movie isn't charming. It's cruel. Dark. Stomach curling. Eye swelling. Head scratching. Gah, this film has everything. It's such a classic.

8 Sleeping Beauty

This is a great Disney movie.
I saw it with my sister - Ajkloth

9 North By Northwest
10 Singin' in the Rain

The Contenders

11 Alice In Wonderland
12 Cinderella
13 On the Waterfront

This isn't in the top 10? - naFrovivuS

14 Rebel Without a Cause
15 The Ten Commandments
16 Ikiru
17 Paths of Glory
18 The Seventh Seal
19 Lady and the Tramp
20 Peter Pan
