rocky-o is right, they're all classics. However, with so many skilled actors around (no names mentioned) I should like to see a new interpretation of 'Inherit The Wind'

You can. It was a play based on a real trial before is was made into a movie.

These entries have been remade already:
- “The Thomas Crown Affair” - with Pierce Brosnan and was better than the original IMHO; eventhough, it lacked the original’s use of split screen.
- “Cape Fear” - Martin Scorsese directed the remake and it is on part with, if not better than the original.
- “Fail Safe” as a tv mini series.

To suggest as a replacements, starting with two William Wyler classics “The Desperate Hours” (1955) https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0047985/...
- “Detective Story” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043465/...
- “The Harder They Fall” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0049291/...
- https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044672/... “The Greatest Show on Earth” Sure it won Best Picture, but I think it could have been a great picture if it had a better story at the center holding all the side stories together. The subplots are what makes it good. Especially James Stewart’s buttons the clown. Clashing egos, fire, epic scale, crime, bribing corrupt officials trying to extort the Circus, competition from other circuses, hidden secrets, this movie has it all. The center story should have been better.

“The Desperate Hours” (1955) was remade also.
I knew that those 3 were remade also.
Rather poorly. That is why i suggested remakes "Again"

The Ten Commandments.  The original is great, but a newer one would still be cool.
