I count one, THE SHADOW, but not a remake, just a better version of the character.
Count my vote for THE BLACK DAHLIA. The 2006 effort by Brian DePalma was disorganized and meandering, exactly NOT what you need when adapting a James Ellroy novel for the screen. The Dahlia deserves better.
This writer at least understand the basic truth about remakes: don't remake good movies, remake crappy movies and make them better. Remember "The Maltese Falcon" that we know and love is a remake. In fact it was the second remake in ten years. Another example is "Battlestar Galactica." The original series was bad even by 1979 standards; the remake a masterpiece.
