Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Wow ! you've never seen this? Its a fantastic movie ! You will love it. "Doctor Jones!, no time for love!"
If you're talking about the 80s, The Breakfast Club is my favorite. BTW, I saw Beetlejuice in theaters when it was first released. I remember thinking it was THE coolest movie ever made at that time. lol I was 7 or 8 years old!
"Stand By Me" I think I must've watched it like 20 times. The first time I was about 8.
By "old time movie" I mean a movie I've seen when I was a kid. Cause I've liked much older films, but I saw them later in life.
I'd have to say The Wizard of Oz. That movie never gets old. For good old - fashioned melodrama tho, can't beat "Mildred Pierce", starring Joan Crawford. "Get out, Veda! Get out before I kill you!"

Beetle jouce an oldie!?!? no way. there's colours and sound and all, so not an oldie, that one.
IFor me, real oldie fav? the original Frankenstein, where you could only see a headsized round piece of the whole picture, yet gave me creeps, at least, back when I was five...(then again, it wasn't probably aimed for children...), and the chaplin movie where he played hitler...darn strange, but funny in a sick way.
I'm thinking that if you consider beetle juice to be "old time" you don't know that movies didn't always have sound.
Anyway my choice is a movie starring Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart called the "Cheyenne Social Club"
I hate to think of 'Beetlejuice' as an old time movie. Loved it as a kid.

Although "Beetlejuice" is by most accounts NOT an "old time" movie I did enjoy it. I would recommend, "The Little General". Now THAT'S an old one.
It's actually one from the silent era but Buster Keaton is a master at visual storytelling. There's a LOT of old movies out there for us all to discover. :)
