Did You Know... that our Auction History database helps you find the absolute best movies to watch?

Last week we asked, "Did You Know... that our Auction History database gives you some of the best and most accurate movie summaries and cast lists on the Internet?", and we promised this week's follow-up about how our Auction History helps you find the best movies to watch.

How? Because we put "the classic" in from of those movies that we REALLY think ARE "classics"! So whenever you see those words in a movie description in our Auction History Database, then you KNOW it is an excellent movie, one you should seek out if you like that genre.

Note that this does NOT mean these are the absolute best movies ever made, and that they are "better" than any movie not on this list! It just means they are "classics" of their kind, and that they stand out among those movies similar to them (and of course, this designation is very subjective, so you likely won't agree with us on every single one).

But if YOU are looking for some great movies to watch, you should look over this list and consider some of the ones you haven't seen. Want to know what movie paper items from these films auction for? We also added a "Search Filter" for "classic" so you can easily filter Auction History and Auction Gallery results to just these films!

Do you consider yourself a MAJOR film buff? Let us know how many of these 922 films you have seen (and it is strictly on the "honor system"). See ones you think we missed, or ones we included that you feel don't deserve to be there? Let us know that too!

Here's the list of all 922 films we have marked as "classic" (each one is clickable to see all the movie paper items we have sold from that film in our Auction History):
