SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS (1937)
It is the original full-length animated movie, and helped to launch a media empire. For me it holds up today, um, intermittently?
THE LIFE OF EMILE ZOLA (1937)
A very old-fashioned biopic (sort of) about a French writer and his fight to save an army officer wrongly accused of treason. I found myself drawn in despite myself.
IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE (1946)
The ultimate feel-good movie, or harrowing exercise in existential angst? Possibly both.
