20 Famous Classic Films I Have Not Seen Yet

A Vintage Nerd, Laura 1944, Classics Films Not Seen, Classic Film Blog, Retro Lifestyle Blog, Old Hollywood BlogSomething funny happens to me when people talk about a movie a lot or suggest that I see it. It's not that I don't want to join in the excitement of a new film or view a movie that has pleased audiences for years and years. I think I sort of recoil from films that are super famous because a lot of times they come with high expectations. I tend to put them aside for a wee bit until I get in the mood to see them or somehow I come across them and make myself watch them finally.

There aren't a lot of super famous classic films I haven't seen but there are a few that did well in the box office at their time or are well known to many. The other day I finally got access to Now Voyager (1942) and it made me think about all the famous classics I have yet to see. Here is my list of 20 famous classic films I have not seen yet.

What famous classic films have you not seen yet? Why haven't you watched them? Have you seen any of these?

  1. I'm so shocked by a number of these!!! Sunset Boulevard is such a fascinating film to me that has a strangely modern feel to it, well from my perspective at least. I guess because it's kind of an in depth look at the oddity of Hollywood. Stagecoach is one of the more basic westerns, and I wrote a whole paper about it in college about how it presented women. I LOVED The Philadelphia Story when I was in college. Citizen Kane is often criticized as boring, and people who don't understand film wonder why it's hailed as the "greatest film of all time" but it was truly pioneering. I ADORE Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. There are a handful on here I haven't seen, but one day I'll get around to them!
