    To the above, none of which I would disagree with, I would add "How Green Was My Valley," "Sons and Lovers," "Some Like It Hot," "In Cold Blood," and Abel Gance's "Napoleon."

    I like Rain's list plus a few others.
    I would add Toland's Wuthering Heights
    3rd Man and Kane are tough competition.
    oh, what about Maltese Falcon, the archetype of noir.
