Happy Fourth of July! While some of you may be spending the entire day partying, others might be choosing to enjoy the much deserved day off. If you are in the latter group and are a lover of all things Old Hollywood, we’ve put together a list of classic vintage films that you can spend the day watching. If, however, you’ve never seen a classic Hollywood film, we hope this list encourages you to give it a try at some point, as there would be no current Hollywood if it wasn’t for its predecessors.
When watching these movies (especially for the first time), you’ll see the acting is among some of the finest in history, and you can even see the development of filmmaking, directing, and storytelling. Beyond that, these films are just plain entertaining and fun to watch. While not a comprehensive list of all the great films from the 1930s to let’s just say the 1960s (the 1970s sparked a couple of new eras in its entirety which we’ll definitely cover at some point), these are among our favorites. Here we go.
