Oscar Winning Movies & Biggest Box Office Hits From Your Birthday Year

Thrillist: Your birthday gifts you a Zodiac sign, a generation, a gemstone, a Chinese animal avatar, a spiritual celebrity twin born the same day, or just your own personal holiday to tide you over until the next national day off. But why stop there? Your entire birth year deserves a symbolic movie, too, the BIGGEST film from a 12-month window that surely says something about where you've come from, and who you've become.

The Red Shoes
Hamlet
The Bicycle Thief

I miss the old days.

Jeff--same year as you...I've seen all three of them. I didn't care for The Red Shoes, thought Olivier's Hamlet was good (but not the best film version I ever saw--that'd be Richard Burton's), and The Bicycle Thief was completely stunning.

1948 here too. Love The Bicycle Thief. Never seen that Hamlet. The Red Shoes is a beautifully shot film but I can't say I care for it much.
