  1. bill norris says:

    The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming and At War with the Army. Because i love those old school comedies and i totally need The Russians are Coming for my collection.

  2. Sara Stewart says:

    I love all of the movies listed above so this is not easy. I think, “Marty” because it’s such a heartfelt story of ordinary people who don’t think they can be loved because of how they look to others. It shows that everyone see beauty differently and everyone deserves love…even if you have to fight for it (including fighting against your own self-doubts.

  3. Chris Teel says:

    Witness for the Prosecution, based on Charles Laughton cast as an aging attorney, which goes hand in glove with his stage persona and amazing oratory skills. I’m also Marlene Dietrich is nothing to sneeze at either. Metropolis would run a close second, pariticlarly with a remastered re-release.

  4. I would love “The Front Page” since it’s one of the movies I’ve never seen. I’m a sucker for a good screwball comedy. The comedies nowadays don’t compare with the humor and slapstick fun of the comedies from the old Hollywood era.

  5. Jeffrey Guerrera says:

    I pretty much need all of these, but my top choice would be “Nosferatu”. The visuals in that movie are pretty much the best I have ever seen. There may not be any words, but the shadows tell you everything you need to know.

  6. Katie C says:

    I’d choose The Russians are Coming… because my dad has this on VHS and he deserves an update!

  7. Emily Graziano says:

    If I were to be lucky enough to win, my first choice would be Witness for the Persecution. because a very good professor suggested this film to me and I would love to get a chance to watch it. My professor’s favorite director is Billy Wilder and he’s really gotten me to watch more Wilder films (beyond Some like it Hot and Sabrina).

  8. Any of these would be a wonderful addition to my library, but my choice would be The Mask – the reason being it is the only one of the prizes I’ve never seen, but have heard about all my life!

  9. I’d love to win Marty because I’m a lonely guy that used to work in a meat department and have always connected with that movie, especially Borgnine’s classic performance.

  10. Dorothy Winnett says:

    Most definitely “Metropolis” one of my absolute favorite films thanks to you Classic Movie Hub, I had never seen & would have missed seeing it except you gave us heads up when it was on ♥

    • Annmarie Gatti says:

      And, I know that you know, it’s one of my favorites as well… saw it on the Big Screen with a live performance by the Alloy Orchestra — my heart was pounding and I was on the edge of my seat — I will never forget it, what an amazing experience!

  13. Ashley Hinz says:

    The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming!, At War With the Army, or The Front Page. I have never seen The Front Page all the way through.

  14. Micaela Weiserth says:

    I would love to have Witness for the Persecution because I’ve heard nothing but good things about it! It would be a great movie to add to my collection!

  15. Garrett Solomon says:

    The only film I’ve seen out of the batch and yet I do not own yet is “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,” so I’d definitely ask for a copy.

  16. Ronald Oliver says:

    Thanks for having such an amazing (unique and generous) giveaway! These are all great classic titles! But since I’m a life-long fan of horror and sci-fi cinema, “The Phantom of the Opera” would be my first choice, because not only is Lon Chaney an icon of classic horror, but he was/is brilliant with his performance in this silent film without even hearing him, or his co-star even speak! The film had the best makeup effects for its time, as well as set pieces, and it still stands the test of time to this very day! I’m also very fond of “Nosferatu”! It too, is another early horror classic, with great performances, along with great make-up effects, set pieces, and one I would love to own on Blu-ray. Thanks!

  17. EBee says:

    I would Love to win ‘Phantom of the Opera because Claude Rains is one of my favorite actors! Thanks!

  18. Sam Geden says:

    I’d like to win “The Mask”, though “Nosferatu” is also very, very appealing! Canada’s first Horror film and one of the greatest silent films ever, how could I choose between them when I’m a big fan of 3D but also a big fan of early cinema? Well, if I win I’ll be happy with either one.

  19. Salvador C. says:

    Metropolis and Nosferatu are my choices. Nosferatu is very atmospheric and has images that will stay with you. The effects work and production design for Metropolis has always amazed me for a film made in the silent era. It was a technical marvel and paved the way for the science-fiction genre in film. I’m a big fan of classic films, and am a BIG fan of special features. I would love to check out the features on these discs. They would make great additions to my blu-ray collection.

  20. Teresa C. says:

    I would pick The Phantom of the Opera. I’ve always enjoyed this adaptation and the makeup work is amazing. Plus, being a fan of bonus content, I’m curious to hear the commentary by Dr. Jon Mirsalis as well as watch the different versions of the film.

  21. Edward Wiest says:

    For now: Phantom of the Opera, if only to see it properly!

  22. Lon Chaney in Phantom of the Opera; I’m a big Phantom fan.

  23. John Beaird says:

    Give me everything Billy Wilder and Fritz Lang , so Wittness for the Prosecution and Matropolisis would be at the top of my list.

  24. Liz says:

    Well I have never seen The Front Page and I really love Witness for the Prosecution…but I would say The Russiana Are Coming because it is one of my Dad’s favorite movies and I would love to surprise him with a new copy and watch it together!

  25. This is a very hard choice and so I’ll start with the easiest question asked–which format would I prefer: I’d prefer the Blu-ray, please. Now, considerably harder is my 1st choice, which is the silent German classic film “Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”, which was said to be the first intro to the horror film way back in 1920. It’s images are dark, bizarre, and very strange and has most likely been a film that’s influenced many American films, particularly in the genre of horror or film noir.

    I thought my 2nd choice would be easy, since Nosferatu seems like the next natural closest choice to my first pick but I’m going to go with something completely different and still special to me, which is Marty, the 1955 film starring Ernest Borgnine, who won best actor for this film, not to mention that it also took home the best picture award. I’ve always been a big fan of Mr. Borgnine and I’d love to see this film again in the pristine format of Blu-ray.

    Thanks for allowing me the chance to possibly win either one of these movies and best of luck to everyone involved.

  26. First choice: “Faust” because I love the play and would love to finally see a film version.
    Second choice: “Phantom of the Opera” because Lon Chaney.

  27. Barry P. says:

    There are so many wonderful choices, but I would have to go with The Phantom of the Opera, because I’m such a huge fan of Lon Chaney. Metropolis and Nosferatu would be tied for a close second because they’re such influential films, and mark a vital period in German cinema

  28. J. Murphy says:

    Tough choice, as they would all be welcome on my shelf. I’d have to go with Caligari, as I’m anxious to finally see it on blu.

  29. Faust would be my first choice, since I love German Expressionism and am starting to develop a real love for silent film. Marty would be my second choice – I just love the Borgnine performance as well as the screenplay by Paddy Chayefsky.

  30. David H. says:

    It is very hard to choose, but I would probably pick Diary of a Lost Girl. It would be very nice to see Louise Brooks’ magnificent in HD! Her beauty and seductiveness remains timeless.

  31. Nick van Lieshout says:

    Nosferatu because even now as a 23-year-old adult, I still get scared when I look down an empty hall and think I see him standing there, staring at me.

  32. Darrell Coomes says:

    Cabinet of Dr. Caligari because I haven’t seen it yet.

  33. Simoa says:

    I’d love Marty on DVD! (No blu ray player). I’m always looking to expand my classic movie collection, and Marty is such a moving film, surprisingly tender and honest. Clara is a character I relate to, and this movie offers a lot of hope, and is just beautiful. It’s become one of my favorites since I saw it just this year.
    I do have Twitter but currently have a locked account. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!

  34. Matthew Kempf says:

    I would like to win all of them, but my favorite would be Nosferatu. German expressionism has had such an influence in cinematic history and that film is an underrated masterpiece in this day and age. If it had not been for my film history class I would not even have known about it. Thank God that class did and was my favorite so far.

  35. paulm says:

    I’d love to win Nosferatu. Love the visual style, and it’s still creepy.

  36. Peter Putzel says:

    Tough choices! But, my first choice would be Phantom because it’s a film I used to own, but need an upgrade…and my kids actually like it! The Front Page would be nice since I work at a newspaper, and then Witness for the Prosecution because it’s just so damn good.

  37. Sanjanaa says:

    At War With The Army! Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis are my absolute FAVORITE comedy duo. I saw it once, a few years ago and I remember I loved it. I haven’t seen it since, unfortunately. Mostly all I remember about it is that it’s a musical comedy – though, I don’t think I could ever forget watching Dean Martin sing, haha.

  38. Adriana says:

    Hmm…I think I would have to choose Diary of a Lost Girl or Marty since those are the ones I haven’t seen from that list. Besides, you can’t go wrong with Ernest Borgnine or Louise Brooks!

  39. Dona says:

    I would most like to win Metropolis because I’ve never seen it before, and it is still seriously cool, as well as super visually appealing.

  40. Nik Havert says:

    I’d choose “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” first (as it is one of my favorite horror films of all time and I’d love to see Kino’s print of it) and “The Phantom of the Opera” second (again, to see it with a fine print).

  41. My pick out of all the movies that you have listed would have to be Metropolis, the 1927 film by Fritz Lang. I love science-fiction and this is a silent classic with a theme that has been a constant in Hollywood right up to today. Metropolis is about a futuristic city that’s a utopia but, in reality, it only exists because of the terrible underworld that’s populated by mistreated workers. This theme is so prevalent that it could be compared to several movies that have come out within the last few years; Hunger Games is similar in theme and another, the excellent Snowpiercer, which again uses a similar theme of advantaged people who rely but mistreat the workers who maintain them. The beauty of Metropolis is in the wonderful images, which hauntingly stick with you. Plus, I’d be able to see this gem in Blu-ray, which would be the first time I would ever see this film in its superior high definition format. Thank you for the chance to win!

  42. Anita Ray says:

    I love the movie “Marty” Even as a kid I remember a pain in my heart watching this movie. Your heart broke for them and their insecurities were so raw. Lovely movie.

  43. Gordon Miller says:

    tough call, but guess I would pick Metropolis first

  44. Aurora says:

    I’ve a tie between PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, the still impressive & influential early horror and WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION, a truly memorable courtroom drama with an unforgettable cast, one of the best entrances in film (Marlene) and great ending!
