My motivational fillums for getting pumped are: The Producers and Ghostbusters and Blues Bros. For relaxation I like any of the original and remake Shaggy Dog films. Or anythink with Audrey Hepburn in it. She is usually in good clothes films for obsessives. Clothes also Cary Grant, Get Smart, Are You Being Served, Sinatra films, Steve McQueen, Paul Newman, The Graduate.
I have never seen the 80's block buster Ghost Busters(insert shock horror gasp). Shaggy Dog films are enjoyable - something about them.
I'm am trying to educate the mrs on classic film, it's been a little hit and miss. She did however love To Catch a Thief with Cary and commented on the clothing - A SF magic moment.
FXH - you rate Robert Redford style wise? I have read a little bit about him, he appeared to be extremely image conscious, guess they/we all are.
What no Casablanca, Maltese Falcon? Noir was my wardrobe starting and departure point from the 1970's as a young man.
For relaxation any 50's sci fi in particular Forbidden Planet. For relaxation during past past divorce cases Die Hard, Hunt for Red October or anything with a high body count.
I grew up watching 50's sci fi movies such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Them, Incredible Shrinking Man, It Came from Outer Space and the original The Day the Earth Stood Still. Will have to hunt down Forbidden Planet!
Die Hard 1 - classic
