Suggests for films about and made in the 1920s and 1930s

I'm planning a personal/blogging project next year to watch films set and which were made during the interwar years and documentaries about the period, from the close of the first world war up until the start of world war two and I was hoping for some suggestions.

My previous projects have been to watch all of Hitchcock's films and Woody Allen's in order which has a particular structure but this is a bit more nebulous and scattershot and although I have a fair few in mind, I want to make sure I'm not going to be missing anything important.
I'm hoping to compare how contemporary filmmakers from the 20s and 30s like Capra viewed their own period with the hindsight impressions of those who came afterwards.
Stories about any part of the world included too please.
