List of films in what may now seem ancient times of 1920's 30's 40's is quite admirable effort. Old films like old songs have charm of their own . One can still enjoy black and white dance song sequence from Ratan - O Jaane wale Balam wa laut ke a laut ke aa. Picturisation of songs like Ramayya wata--in Shree 420 reamins quite enchanting even in present times
