What becomes a classic?

I watch The Wizard of Oz whenever it is on. The movie was made in 1939, the year my mom was born, and it is an enduring classis. The same goes for the movie Casablanca. It never gets old for me.

Right now I’m watching Dirty Dancing, and the other night it was Grease. I saw Grease at the theater decades ago when it came out, and now my kids will watch it.¬†What is it that makes these movies, and others, classics? Why do they last so well, and draw us into them every time?

Will movies we are watching today become classic? If so, why, and which ones? Though I suppose if I could answer that I’d be rich.
