I'm interested in buying a cheap film camera to toy around with... but have no knowledge of film cameras.

I'm not looking to build a whole new lens set or anything.. hopefully stay under $100 max.

Can somebody recommend a few good models I can look up on ebay?

thank you!

Personally I would pick an Olympus OM-2 or a Nikon FE. if you want a modern camera with AF a Nikon F100 is a good buy.

Or if you just want something compact - an Olympus XA. Konica C35, Minolta Hi-Matic

An OM-1, looks almost exactly as an OM-2

Nikon FE

I still find both of these things of beauty. Makes me want to start collecting cameras from my past.
