Saw a classic "film noire" on TCM with Bogie and Bacall, plus Jimmy Cagney: Key Largo. How about Giant, with a giant cast including Liz, James Dean, and a young Dennis Hopper. Some other favs are Hitchcock films from the 1950s, many filmed around my native San Francisco area, like Vertigo.
The beauty of these classic films is they were made with a lot of attention to subtle details and didn't rely on special effects to leave an impact.

I like almost all the John Wayne films, but I think my absolute favorite is The Quiet Man. I also like the old Shirley Temple movies, too. As for the other classic movies, there are a bunch that come to mind, but here are a few of my favorites:

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Old Yeller
Gone With The Wind
Ben Hur
The Ten Commandments
Rise of the Phoenix (the original, not the remake)
Miracle on 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life
The Wizard of Oz
