I recently watched Dr. Strangelove, Kubrick's masterpiece, and laughed my ass off at this oldie but goodie. I had forgotten how smart and funny it was.

What is your favorite older, funny movie?

Animal House, it was in 1977/8 after all. It is the quintessential college movie and the origin of the college and frat and party movie tropes we have seen since its release. There is at least one thing that happened in Animal House that is in modern movies like Euro Trip, Road Trip and Neighbors.

Blazing Saddles - I lost count of how many times I've watched this movie, but my sides ache from laughing whenever I see it.

I still love "The Producers", as well as "Arsenic and Old Lace" and "Harvey".

Its A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

The Graduate was marketed as a drama, but was also tremendously funny. The same could be said for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

I have not seen that movie (unless as a child when it came out). I will look for it.

I will also add the classic Blake Edward's movie "The Great Race".

Push the button, Max.
