I'm also thinking about the ongoing genre stuff, like the long series of Abbott and Costello movies, the Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis comedies ("At War With the Army" for one), and a TON of science fiction/horror films...especially from Universal. The era of the great MGM musicals. ("Showboat") And take a look at all of the John Wayne films in the 1950s...wow.

Ben-Hur (1959), very amazed at how Director William Wyler directed a big epic movie and yet made us really pay attention to every human emotion no matter how subtle, was never bored with the 3hr44min film.
