A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.

ON THIS DAY IN MOVIE HISTORY

The civil rights drama classic IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT was released fifty years ago today on August 2, 1967. Nominated for seven Academy Awards and winner of five (including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay), this remains one of the greatest films ever made.

With streaming platforms, iTunes and an endless parade of premium cable channels, older movies have never been more accessible. In the links below we offer our recommendations for titles dating back to the silent era.

what we're watching

The star power of Audrey Hepburn is truly incredible. I've recently decided to go back and watch many of her best movies, and not only do they hold up -- many of them are light years ahead of any contemporary filmmaking. After revisiting the 1954 classic SABRINA for the first time in almost 20 years, it's hard to identify any actress in the history of film that can match her screen presence. If you've never seen this gem, or other classics such as ROMAN HOLIDAY, HOW TO STEAL A MILLION or WAIT UNTIL DARK, you are really missing out.
