Well I was thinking early 60s and before...B&W, Technicolor. I guess 1983 is old to some, though (bailey, I'm looking at you).

edited because geez, it wasn't even 1981 old...

Favorites because of personal memories associated with them, not necessarily because I think they are all-time Oscar material:

The Buccaneer - 1951 - with Yul Brynner

Journey to Shiloh - 1960s - James Caan, I think, and Paul Peterson.

To Kill A Mockingbird - early 1960s - Gregory Peck... and also was the first movie for a long time well respected big name actor... a memorable part where he was on screen for about two minutes and never spoke a word... any guesses as to whom?

the entire Sherlock Holmes series with Basil Rathbone.

The Maltese Falcon (saw it last weekend)

Lost Horizon (not the '70s musical flop but the original early '30s flick)

Wings Of Desire (not sure when this was made,
late '70s? early 80's? but it's awesome)
