10 Best Classic Movies on Netflix Streaming Right Now

By Kenny Howell

It's once again time to take a look at what Netflix streaming has to offer, and today we will look at the best 10 classic films that are available right now.

Metropolis (1927) - Directed by Fritz Lang - Lang's early silent masterpiece of a futuristic city and the class divide of the workers and the city planners.

Roman Holiday (1953) - Directed by William Wyler - Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck bounce around Rome in this story of a princess that escapes her life for a day and spends it with an American journalist.

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) - Directed by Robert Wiene - Another great silent masterpiece about a hypnotist that uses a somnambulist to carry out grizzly murders.

Sunset Boulevard (1950) - Directed by Billy Wilder - Wilder's terrific film noir about Norma Desmond, a former movie star that has faded into obscurity, but has delusions that her next big break is just around the corner.

The Sting (1973) - Directed by George Roy Hill - Paul Newman and Robert Redford try to pull off a huge con job in this Best Picture winning comedy.

The Hustler (1961) - Directed by Robert Rossen - Newman once again, this time playing a pool master that must pick up the pieces after losing one huge game against Minnesota Fats.

The Conformist (1970) - Directed by Bernardo Bertolucci - A man takes a job assassinating a man who fled Italy when Mussollini took power in this controversial drama from Bertolucci.

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) - Directed by Robert Mulligan - The classic adaptation of the Harper Lee novel about a man defending a black man against a rape charge in depression era south. Gregory Peck gives one of the best performances in American film history.

The Exorcist (1973) - Directed by William Friedkin - A horror film that has surprisingly held up as really freaking scary for over 40 years. It follows the story of a girl possessed by a demon and priest's attempt to exorcise it out of her.

How to Steal a Million (1966) - Directed by William Wyler - Terrific pairing of Audrey Hepburn and Peter O'Toole in a story about a woman who must steal back a piece of art her father lent to a museum because it is a forgery.
