I agree with BonMorrison, who suggested The Night of the Hunter, one of the most brilliantly made films of all time.

Can't go wrong with Casablanca, arguably the most likeable film ever made.

As far as a first-time recommendation in this thread, I'd suggest one of Buster Keaton's films, either Sherlock Jr. or The General. Keaton isn't just the most talented physical comedian of all time, but brings a level of humanity that has aged so much better than the other silent stars, due to his understated nature. He also was a genius visionary pioneer, which is very evident in Sherlock Jr., which is short and sweet at 45 minutes, and is available on Netflix Instant and YouTube.
