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
, 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
. 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.
