    I loved the old Norman Wisdom films when I was younger, the BBC would usually show them now and again during the afternoon sometimes in the school holidays. I remember recording a few of them on tape and getting one of them for Christmas one year, I think it was called 'On the Beat' where he joins the police force. I can remember watching the one where Norman Wisdom/Norman Pitkin joins the navy, I absolutely loved this film and if I remember correctly it also starred a young John Briggs/Mike Baldwinn.

    there must be hundreds, maybe thousands of great B&W films (I try to tell my kids that just because it isn't in colour, doesn't mean its not a great storyline)

    A lot of the vintage comedy films stand out for me: Laurel & Hardy, Abbott & Costello (..meet The Wolfman, meet The Mummy etc etc) , Will Hay (Ask A Policeman, Where's That Fire, Oh Mr Porter! etc) , the Marx Brothers, most of the Ealing Stuff

    off top of my head also: most Hitchock films esp The Lady Vanishes, The 39 Steps.....a load of old war films ..The Cruel Sea, Ice Cold in Alex,The Longest Day,

    oh & Dr Strangelove of course (oh not old of course, but: Schindler's List)

    Ice cold in Alex another good film

    Laurel and Hardy films especially the one Saps at sea

    Norman Wisdom my favorite was I think it was called the early bird where he was a milkman working for Mr GrimsdaleNelly the horse where norman Puts nelly to bed it was funny

    There was also films with Stanley Baker cant remember the names off by heart,Dirk Bogarde which were good also

    Thanks for the response keep them coming and keep on watching them
