Which classic films have you heard to be great but only after seeing it decades after made you realize it truly was splendid?

Asked by mazingerz88 (26224points) June 25th, 2011

It is only recently that I started watching “Lawrence of Arabia” and 40 minutes into it, I already knew I was watching a great film. Have you a classic film that you delayed watching for years only to be mesmerized and awed by its sheer cinematic beauty and great story?

Deliverance and Cool Hand Luke.

I’d like to thank my husband for introducing me to these movies.
