Judgment at Nuremberg and A Raisin in the Sun stand out for me here. If I catch those on TV, I'll watch til the end (which eats up a lot of time on the first of those).

Breakfast at Tiffany's...I don't know how it played in 1961, but wow that Mickey Rooney thing has not aged well.

Agree about Rooney. I just ignore it when I watch the film. Check out this documentary, especially at 7:40:
