A classic (to me) is one of those films that you will watch if you happen to run across it no matter how many times you've already seen it. I'll watch any of Bogart's films, especially The Maltese Falcon, The Big Sleep, Key Largo and The African Queen.
I'll watch any of Woody Allen's films. They're not for everyone but I like them. This also goes for the Marx Brothers.
Hitchcock? Yup. any of them, but favs are The Birds, Psycho and Lifeboat.
A few others that draw me in:
All About Eve, The Lion in Winter, M*A*S*H, Bonnie & Clyde, Little Big Man, It Happened One Night, All The President's Men, and of course Gone With the Wind and the Wizard of Oz.
Too many others to name...pick a genre and I'll do better.
Clark Gable was Awesome as a rogue, I loved him with Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night.
