I really enjoy Mad Men. Please recommend some great classic 1950s/60s* movies that have similar themes or aesthetic - from noir to the women's pictures. Contemporary films set in the period also welcome!
(I'm trying to get up to speed on old classics. Watched Casablanca for the first time last week - I knew just what would happen, and still sobbed through the ending.)
*Yes, I know the show begins in '61, but to all intents and purposes it's still the fifties - particularly if you believe that the sixties proper didn't start 'til 63.
