BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
My favorite, The Ladykillers, did ok, at 30. The oddest thing about the list is no Olivier anywhere, as actor or director. I would have thought that one of his Shakespeare films, Henry V most likely, would have made it somewhere.Art Scott
Although I might change the order somewhat and I haven't seen many of the listed, there are many great and enjoyable films here! Agree about the oddness of the missing Olivier. I would have found a place for Richard II.
Whoops! Leaving out "A Man for All Seasons" (Scofield, Hiller, McKern, Shaw, Welles,Etc.) is a serious judgement fault for an otherwise terrific list!!!
I was glad to see COLONEL BLIMP ranked so highly. Such a great and compassionate film.
I’d think “Tunes of Glory” would be in there somewhere. Maybe too much Alec Guinness already?John D
I was glad to see three of my all-time faves (regardless of nation of origin) made the list: THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY, WITHNAIL & I, and KIND HEARTS AND CORONETS. Did I miss PASSPORT TO PIMLICO? And no love for THE MAGIC CHRISTIAN?
