A year ago I would constantly tell myself I wanted to get into classic films more, but all my attempts led me to boredom. Thankfully, I got myself out of that mindset, and now the world of cinema is expansive and my options are never limited.
If you're in the same boat as I was a year ago, here's a list of introductory films that will keep you entertained and will (hopefully) open your mind to watching classic films from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, & 60s that are not in this list.
The main function of this is to introduce you to films that are entertaining and will hold your attention. You'll never say "old films" or "black & white" films are boring ever again ((hopefully)) :-)
(This list is a companion to my "documentaries for people who want to watch more documentaries but don't know where to start" list.)
