A lot of movies are about manliness, huh?

I saw 12 Angry Men recently, I'll go with that.

It seems so. And surprisingly, some of the older movies offer the most subversive view on manliness. Thinking of Shane, The Seven Samurai, The Searchers, Vertigo.

There's so many I can't really pick one now; I'll wait til it goes live and vote then.  :)
These are great lists; a lot of these movies are not about masculinity not in a brutish form, but genuine manliness that is strength, will, and wisdom.
