In West Side Story's defense it is probably one of the most accessible musicals for those who are not fans of the genre. It strikes the right balance for a lot of people. The songs are timeless and part of pop culture. There is merit in that even if fans of musicals would not rank it that highly.

That movie has always kind of blown my mind. It may make me sound stupid, but, when I first saw it, knowing (as anyone alive knows) how the film ends, I was still shocked when it happened. I thought I maybe misunderstood how it worked or something, so, I still got a great bit of enjoyment out of the twist ending.

I own the Corman on laserdisc with one other Price collaboration. Good shit.

And I recently watched Grand Prix for the first time, an HD-DVD copy. I'm curious to see Steve McQueen's pet project Le Mans to compare, but I really liked Frankenheimer's film.

The racing footage is so stylistic and well edited it captures the excitement of the sport perfectly. I really wanted to like Le Mans but it falls well short IMO. Same with Winning (68), the film that started Paul Newman's love of auto sport.

I loved those Poe/Corman double laser discs. It was the only way to see the films in their proper ratio back then.

Pardon my ignorance, but I'm curious. Did anyone ever make a good film version of "The Fall of the House of Usher"

That's easily my favorite Poe story.

There's a good short experimental film from the silent era. I don't remember who made it. Striking stuff though. But probably not what you're looking for.

I won't be able to make a top 10
but there are films from the 60s that I think are exceptionally good
some that come to mind are:

Doctor Zhivago
The Producers
Rosemary's Baby
Lawrence of Arabia
2001 A Space Oddity
Midnight Cowboy
