    Above there are some wonderful lists of favourite movies of past decades.

    I'm slightly altering this thread for this new topic:

    I am currently on the search for classic black and white suspenseful movies of the 30s, 40s and 50s and/or classic Film Noir movies. It can also go into gothic-horror.

    Many of you are movie buffs / cinephiles and I'm sure you can do a Top 10 or Top 5 must-see list of that category :) so some of us can get inspired to catch up on the important movies that we shouldn't miss. Many thanks in advance.

    Anyone here seen White Zombie from 1932 starring Bela Lugosi?

    One of my favourite films from back then.
