Which 3-5 films would you pick to highlight a career or a genre?

Sir Laurence Olivier

Wuthering Heights

Pride and Predjudice

Rebecca

 

Also on Hitchcock I think The Birds was somewhat better than Psycho (only my opinion of course)

Spencer Tracy's last film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner was one of his greatest. He and Kate Hepburn's love for each other really showed through. I also think the remake was a disgrace to the original.
