Just this weekend, I re-watched "Schindler's List" shot on a filmstock you say no one has shot for years. The tones of this film are fantastic, and the detail, leads me to believe it was shot with Zeiss lenses.

Even "A Hard Day's Night" is listed as one of the greatest films ever made both artistically, & historically. You can include this one too, (if you think of 1964 as "for years").
