Please suggest some good black'n'white American movie where there are good views of New York or Chicago cities. Something that is not silly. I found big collection of retro movies on YouTube (probably Public Domain or something) but THEY ARE SUCH A GARBAGE! Is there anything of those times worth watching? Something serious and high quality.

Since today is Valentine again it is pretty obvious to suggest few worthy romantic movies
Notebook - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3G3fILPQAU
A Walk To Remember - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V96uhfQ0x9A
Titanic - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCy5WQ9S4c0
If you don't get any emotions watching these - you have no humanity whatsoever inside you. The first time i watched these - epicly wow! Especially since i did not watch any spoilers about them including trailers.

The Intern (2015) was okay, wouldn't say the greatest Valentine movie tho?

A Charlie Brown Valentine

Cactus Flower (1969) (I have not seen this one yet.)
Lost in Translation (2003) (This one is good with Bill Murray offbeat, the movie too. )

The ending is going to piss you off.

Edit: at least it did for me. At the very least. The ending is upsetting.

Thumbs up

Got around to that movie again and saw Dailymotion has a speed up and slow down option for video, something I often miss when I can't download content. About a third until the "ending" now but have to pause again, I sometimes take a month to watch a few movies at a time &c...

I loved it. Not bang up shoot em up beat em up.

More like a Alfred Hitchcock style of movie. I don't want to spoil it. But parts are interchangeable.
I think I've dated ex machina in my younger years.

Still get shivers thinking about.
