I was thinking about this a couple weeks ago, for reasons I don’t recall. My first thought was Disney’s Snow White (1937), but after a little quality time with Google, I think the real answer is the original King Kong, which came out in 1933 — back when audible dialogue was still an exciting new development in the cinematic world.
What’s the oldest movie you’ve seen?
Alternate question: If I wanted to break my 1933 record, what film would you recommend? I’ve never seen anything with Charlie Chaplin, any suggestions there?
