Classic film recommendations for noobs

A film recommendation thread for us noobs who weren't around to watch movies from before...let's say 1980 and have no idea of where to start. Here are some I'd mostly recommend with The Great Escape, Breakfast At Tiffany's, and The Day of the Jackal being my 3 favourite from these ones.

On The Waterfront (b/w)
Sabrina (b/w)
Breakfast At Tiffany's
To Kill A Mockingbird (b/w)
The Longest Day (b/w)
The Great Escape
Dr. Strangelove (b/w)
Doctor Zhivago
How To Stael A Million
The Graduate
Midnight Cowboy
Catch 22
The Day of the Jackal
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Slap Shot
Star Wars
All Quiet On The Western Front (1979 version)

Too many entertaining war films from back then like Von Ryan's Express which I won't mention. They're a blur anyways, it's the other ones that stick out. I put Star Wars on there but in hindsight, it was pretty cheesy and not so great based on today but good at the time I guess.
