I loved Frank Capra’s movies. On top of my list are- (In no particular order)
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

Platinum Blonde (1931)

A miracle woman (1931)

Apart from Frank Capra, I loved Alfred Hitchcock’s movies. In particular, these two-
A self-conscious bride is tormented by the memory of her husband’s dead first wife.
A Phoenix secretary embezzles $40,000 from her employer’s client, goes on the run, and checks into a remote motel run by a young man under the domination of his mother.
Apart from these two directors, there are unique and certain black and white classics as well. Like-
12 Angry Men (1957)
A jury holdout attempts to prevent a miscarriage of justice by forcing his colleagues to reconsider the evidence.
City Lights (1931) (Charlie Chaplin)
Best Comedy Movie I ever watched!
