Gone with the Wind ★★★★★

It doesn't say very much for the 1930s studio system, but Hattie McDaniel's mammy role was the most significant, dignified, integral role for any black woman in a major Hollywood film to that point....and she remains the highlight of the movie (and received an Oscar).

Even with its mountains of cultural baggage...that opening music still gives me chills, and I'm happy to kick back and watch all 4 hours anytime.
