(really) Old movies worth watching?

Not obvious ones like King Kong or Citizen Kane, High Noon etc.

A few I have seen and can highly recommend:

Ox-box Incident (Henry Fonda) and Gunfighter with Gregory Peck. Two really solid western that don't usually get mentioned with the all time greats.

Hud with Paul Newman playing a selfish dick.

Night of the Hunter (Robert Mitchum) about a serial killer preacher chasing some kids through the south.

How Green was my Valley about life in a w
Welsh mining town at the turn of 20th century. Sounds boring as hell but is a great coming of age story.


One of my favorites is Mad Love with Peter Lorre:

In Paris, the great surgeon Dr. Gogol falls madly in love with stage actress Yvonne Orlac, and his ardor disturbs her quite a bit when he discovers to his horror that she is married to concert pianist Stephen Orlac. Shortly thereafter, Stephen's hands are badly crushed in a train accident- beyond the power of standard medicine. Knowing that his hands are his life, Yvonne overcomes her fear and goes to Dr. Gogol, to beg him to help. Gogol decides to surgically graft the hands of executed murderer Rollo onto Stephen Orlac, the surgery is successful but has terrible side-effects...
