Off the top of my head: The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Sullivan's
Travels, much Martin Ritt (Norma Rae, The Molly Maguires,Stanley & Iris,The
Great White Hope up to a point), Dodsworth (in some ways), perhaps some
Astaire-Rogers films, certainly the underrated Mitchell Leisen's The Mating
Season :John Lund marries classy Gene Tierney, is sort of ashamed of his
mother who runs a hamburgeria. Latter played by the really great Thelma
Ritter.
 
 
If the list gets extended to non-English-lang films there is a plethora of
titles. In France --off top of head again-- many 1930s films, esp. of the
Popular Front period. Several Renoirs: Grand Illusion, Rules of the
Game,the neglected Boudu Saved From Drowning (and its US remake Down and
Out in Beverly Hills), A Day in the Country, La Bete Humaine (the murdered
rich older man took advantage of his femme-household staff),The Lower
Depths, The Golden Coach (lowly thespians and colonial rulers), and on and
on.
=46ilms of Marcel Carn=E9 like Le Jour se Leve, Children of Paradise (the
Count), et al. Feyder's Carnival in Flanders.Carne again with
Bizarre-Bizarre (as farce), etc.etc.
Rene Clair's Le Million (in a small way),A Nous la Liberte (in a bigger
way), The Ghost Goes West (satirizes wealthy Amer. nouveaux riches, Les
Grandes Maneuvres to an extent.
Duvivier's Pepe le Moko, Truffaut's Shoot the Pianist, Blier's Too
Beautiful for You. Getting tired.So much depends on the definition(s) of
"classism," on whether it is the main subject, a sub-topic or a more or
less delicate hint.
If no Ph.D. dissertation exists on this, someone ought to become rich (?)
and famous with this subject.
