Classic Hollywood (And Some Brit Film)

When I am asked, "What Classic Hollywood films would you recommend?"

Please note: as far as I'm concerned, the chronological era of Classic (Golden Age) Hollywood ends with The Apartment in 1960. Everything after that I class as modern good Hollywood.

And oh yeah, I'm throwing Brit film in there too.
