What do you think are the movies that hold up the best today from each decade of the 20th century?

I have recently watched some classics from the 50s, 60s and 70s (12 Angry Men, Rosemary's Baby, Harvey, The Wickerman) and have been floored at how well they hold up. I feel like I've been a bit of a snob most of my life not wanting to delve into older movies because of slower pacing, dialogue that is hard to relate to in the modern world, etc.

I want to get more into older movies but of course many films that were considered classics of their time don't really hold their ground for modern audiences, so going as far back as the 20s what do you think is as good as anything that has come out today, and not merely just "good for its time". I know Lawrence of Arabia is considered a classic for example but it was too slow-paced for me in the end, although I appreciated the scope and originality of the film.
