Exploitataion films such as stuff from the Corman camp and Blaxploitation pics are rarely mentioned on these threads but are also well worth checking out. 'midnite movies', 'corman classics' and 'soul cinema', though often not great prints and sometimes a bit sparse extras wise, come heartily recommended and can often be picked up quite cheap.

I'm a big Michael Caine fan, so here's a few good films he was in during that era, along with some non Caine films

Get Carter (cool gangster film)
The Italian Job
Zulu
Alfie
The Ipcress File
Funeral In Berlin
The Eagle Has Landed

Actually that's probably about it, can't think of any non Michael Caine films from that era that I thought were anything special none that spring to mind anyway, was just reeling off those films above from my collection.

Does Luca Brasi have to hold a gun to your head and tell you your brains or The Godfather will be on this thread?

Any Hitchcock! If you've not ventured into watching any of his films, the following from the 1930s, 40s & 50s are definately worth it!

The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934)
The 39 Steps (1935)
The Lady Vanishes (1938)

Foreign Correspondent (1940)
Rebecca (1940)
Suspicion (1941)
Saboteur (1942)
Shadow Of A Doubt (1943)
Spellbound (1945)
Notorious (1946)

Strangers On A Train (1951)
Rear Window (1954)
Vertigo (1958)
North By Northwest (1959)


Of course, most of Hitch' work, from any time is perefectly watchable ..plenty of others in between, see a filmography here > http://nextdch.mty.itesm.mx/mov/hfilm.html
