Don't know if it technically falls into the realm of remake, but I much prefer the Barbara Stanwyck/Clifton Webb version of TITANIC to the overblown James Cameron film.

Love Affair (1939) rather than Affair to Remember (1957) or Love Affair (1994)--though the Ennio Morricone score in the latter film is glorious.
The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) is so much better than the recent remake with Keanu Reeves, which had no soul.
