WEST SIDE STORY (1961)
About three-quarters of my favorite movie all-time, but not quite. Still sort of elemental to where musicals have gone since then.
MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (1947)
A holiday classic about whether a crazy guy who thinks he’s Santa is actually Santa, made a time when studios insisted Christmas movies wouldn’t sell.
REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE (1955)
James Dean’s most famous role, in the movie that kind of invented being a teenager.
THE SEARCHERS (1956)
John Wayne drags a handsome guy around the American West because he is so racist. It’s kind of like the Odyssey.
