Classic Old Drama Movies

Of all the genres of classic old movies, drama has to be the one that has best survived the test of time. Simply put, some stories are timeless, and some themes are as relevant today as they were generations ago.

The movies we have selected for you here are about innocence, courage, dignity, manhood, character, love, and loss. So many modern movies are based on similar themes, but not many of them have characters as great as Atticus Finch or Charles Edward Chipping.

 

The Hustler

A Night to Remember
The story of the sinking of the Titanic. A great movie, very different to the 1997 James Cameron version, but just as powerful in its own way.
