Because I have enough favorite old movies to fill a book, I thought I'd start listing the best ones by decade. To me, the 1920s really defined what I know as film today. Storylines were starting to thicken and become more complex than before, Hollywood was flourishing and "movie stars" were really becoming a "thing." So I'll start there.
