Mr. Doyle’s Movie List


Mr. Doyle, Adviser

I love old movies here are some of my favorites:

  • Try a Charlie Chaplin Film– Maybe The Kid, City Lights, Modern Times, The Great Dictator
  • Any Marx Brothers Film Maybe Duck Soup or Horse Feathers- Groucho, Chico, Harpo, Zeppo
  • Try a Horror Film– Frankenstein with Boris Karloff, Dracula with Bela Lugosi, The Wolfman with Lon Chaney Jr.
  • Angels with Dirty Faces James Cagney, Pat O’Brien and the Bowery Boys
  • Casablanca– WWII with Bogart and Bergman- a classic love story
  • Gunga Din 1800’s India- with Cary Grant- a great adventure
  • Robin Hood– Sherwood Forest- Errol Flynn- love those tights
  • Rear Window– An Alfred Hitchcock Film and Jimmy Stewart- A Man stuck inside his apartment (sounds familiar)
  • The Thing– An alien is discovered in the north pole, watch either the 1950’s version or 1982 John Carpenter
  • The Great Escape– World War II- All Star Cast- Steve McQueen motorcycle jump is a classic
  • Lawrence of Arabia– WWI Arabia- Peter O’Toole- A David Lean Film- visually and musically beautiful
  • Planet of the Apes1968 version-the original- written in part by Rod Serling with Charlton Heston
  • The Sting the second time Paul Newman and Robert Redford team up, this time to pull a con
  • Breaking Away– 1979 film about local kids in Indiana against the college kids in a bike race
  • Breaker Morant– 1980 movie about the Boer War in South Africa in 1902- Australian Soldiers put on Trial


This should keep you busy. Find time to get outside, get some air, some sun, talk to family and friends you haven’t seen for awhile, organize your room, help your parents around the house, play a board game with them and just laugh and smile for a while, it always makes me feel better.
