In no particular order:

Zulu: Great sound design (many years before it was even called that!), great battle scenes, fantastic climax.

Intolerance: One of the first classics of the silent era. A complex structure of interwoven story lines that's still easy to follow.

M: One of the most chilling scenes of it's day is when the shadow of the "child murderer" stalks his victim.

The Third Man: Beautifully photographed, structured and paced.

Wings: The first movie to ever win the "Best Picture" Oscar. Still some of the best aerial combat scenes ever filmed, and very cute VFX scene ("Bubbles!").

The Searchers: There's a reason so many great directors love this film. It's another example of beautiful photography, solid structure and good pacing.

Foreign Correspondent: Perhaps my favorite Hitchcock film, with some of the snappiest dialog on the screen outside of Preston Sturges or Ben Hecht.

I could go on, but I feel like I'm starting to babble!


Post production is not an afterthought!
