Mary Poppins is all I can rack my brain with.
The Tinkerbell movies (I think there are about five of them) have mostly female characters with only one or two boys, and none of them are princesses. Then Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, the Secret Garden, Kiki's Delivery Service, Ponyo, Arietty, My Neighbour Totoro, Matilda, Nimh's Island, Pippi Longstocking... There are a few, though you kind of have to go looking for them, which I have for my daughter.
Hubby suggests The City of Lost Children. Also, if you're looking for movies about girls that aren't for children there is Pan's Labyrinth.
Coraline comes to mind.
Yes, that's a good one. Oh and another Neil Gaiman one- Mirrormask.

Oh, and I was forgetting The Wizard of Oz.
A favourite of mine is Harriet the Spy.
Coraline was a good one. I was going to say 'Brave' (2012) but then realised the main character is a princess - though not your stereotypical one.

Shirley Temple (many movies), National velvet with Elizabeth Taylor, Annie, 42nd street (Natalie Wood), Little Women.... I'd think of more but I have to go to work now!
'Sound of Music', 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', 'Breakfst at Tiffany's', 'Ladyhawke'.....
