    I'll nominate:

    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
    Cool Hand Luke
    The Fugitive
    Stir Crazy

    I wanted to nominate The Bridge on the River Kwai, but ran out, and figured that one was a shoe-in for someone else to nominate.

    Updated.
    Andrew and Jim, Grand Illusion was just a suggestion on my part. But since it's fairly well known, I went ahead and put it on the list. [​IMG]
