the recent release of True Grit cause me to reflect on other films that have held up well over the years & still remain entertaining decades later even though they've been remade, formulated or
sequeled or prequeled in some form:
King Kong (1930')
Adventures of Robin Hood (1930's)
Bride of Frankenstein (1930')
Planet of the Apes (1960's))
Butch Cassidy and The Sundance kid (1970's)
Jaws (1970's))
Mark of Zorro (1930's)
Star wars (1970's)
The wizard of Oz (1930's)
The wolfman (1940's)

K. Russell says:
The Manchurian Candidate still packs a punch in its early 1960s dramatization, though it was remade in more recent years. Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959) has never been remade, but was the forerunner of the James Bond films and oodles of other thrillers, and is still a potent thriller.

I stumbled upon this discussion entirely by accident but allow me to certainly nominate "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (1951)! The "reimagined" (!!) version with Keanu Reeves was infinitely LAMER than I'd anticipated! And talk about a classic with charm! I've never bothered looking at an attempted remake because the original "The Bride Of Frankenstein" (1935) is colossally unbeatable!! Returning to 1951, "The Thing From Another World" holds up because so much was done with such stark B&W sets and photography, and the uncharacteristically intelligent dialogue (Producer: Howard Hawks). John Carpenter's "The Thing" (1982) is extremely suspenseful and more faithful to original short story, but not necessarily superior--though I've grown fonder of it with the passing years. Other than this project, I am no fan of Mr. Carpenter.
