Seminal film-noir with Fred MacMurray as the insurance salesman caught in a web of murder and betrayal. The tension is built up expertly in this firecraker plot.
Great performances from Barbara Stanwyck with Edward G Robinson's claims adjuster providing the perfect foil.

Classics can be different for different people. I just watched 'Harold and Maude' and found it quite something. As a child, I remember it being exciting because of the kid always trying to 'kill' himself but saw it in a different way this time.

I'll pick one less cited as a classical great. Fine performances by all. Well written with many subplots. A wonderful blend of action, drama, comedy and romance.
Photography and scenes excellent especially given it was released in 1939. Sam Jaffe, as Gunga Din, stole the show from a star studded cast and didn't receive near the acclaim he should have. Note his name doesn't even appear on the poster even though he is the title character.
A must see if you haven't and well worth another look if you have.
