There are some films that are classics because they do not have any women in them; such as Full Metal Jacket, 12 Angry Men, A Few Good Men, The Alamo, Saving Private Ryan (except the great mother scene), and others. Conversely, there are several classics that feature women, where men are merely props; such as Two Women, Sophies Choice, The French Lieutenant's Woman, The Devil Wears Prada, Queen Elizabeth, and several others.
