I hate to admit it, but I've never seen Casablanca.

I would put Citizen Kane on my list, as well, but it seems so cliche to mention it since it's so often mentioned as "the best" movie ever and all that. But I do really like it.

The Maltese Falcon

I've seen Citizen Kane but I wouldn't put it on any of my top 10 lists. It's not that I don't think that it's a well made film, I just didn't enjoy it that much.

Oh, definitely find the time to do so. I think you'll enjoy it. I hadn't seen it until last year. It'd just been so hyped that I didn't want to be let down, so I kept putting it off and putting it off. I finally watched it and loved it. Be sure to see it soon, and post once you've done so. I'd love to hear what you thought.

- Casablanca
- Citizen Kane
- White Heat
- Treasure of the Sierra Madre
- The Grapes of Wrath
- The Ox-Bow Incident
- Dumbo
- Suspicion
- The Wolf Man

There are quite a few titles that I've got, but still haven't watched. I sense a few of those would easily make the list had I already seen them, but I didn't want to make assumptions.

Rebecca. Based on discussion here, I purchased this one the day Criterion released it and it was one of my best blind buys ever.
