Technically the Our Gang/Little Rascals films are considered "shorts" as opposed to full length features, however, their charm and gentle humor need to be noted.

I prefer the older Hal Roach films directed by Robert Mc Gowen with Farina & Mary Ann before MGM produced the series and it went "Hollywood".

MGM actually slapped their lion's roar intro on some of the older Roach Studio films.

Lore has it that Stan Laurel gifted "the hat" to Stymie.

It's difficult to compare generations when it comes to film lists.  Some films are just out of circulation, but I will add missing titles to the list.

The General

The Kid

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The Blues Brothers

It Happened One Night

Dr. Strangelove


Just about ANY film by Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Marx Brothers or Monty Python.

Honorable mention goes to Fast Times at Ridgemont High
