More classic cinema is available for free legally online than ever before. You can watch more film from any decade, than you could if you were living in the decade that they were made in. I just stumbled across another treasure trove, and now I now I need to start that age-enhancement process asap as I don't have the time available in my lifetime to watch all the great stuff that is out there, accessible by a simple keystroke. Europa Film Treasures is a joint venture of 30 different film archives and has all sorts of things available.
Personally speaking, I would love a list of directors and stars to pick from, but hey, I am not that picky.
