Films of Style

"We are not recommending these films solely for their wardrobes--even though many of them are exemplary. These are films that will give your eyes a workout, either because of their breathtaking cinematography or because their is nothing like watching Cary Grant and Myrna Loy for two hours." --From Tim Gunn's Guide to Quality Taste and Style
