Dr.Zom: Teufelaffe: underwhere: Why did the writer of that article go out of his way to post the spoiler about Rosebud?Rosebud was calling from inside the house.Rosebud killed Dumbledore.
stoli n coke: No mention of "The Erotic Adventures of Helen Keller: Based on the novel 'Push' by Sapphire?'"You people know nothing about movies.

loooongview1: I'd argue Welles is probably more of a Roger Maris type, two unbelievable years/films but a middling career when you take that away. And yeah, I know I'm mixing my eras, but still.
Solid Muldoon: The Maltese Falcon
Ambivalence: It can't be the best, I haven't seen it.Duh.
Allansfirebird: For me, Citizen Kane and Vertigo are more important for their craftsmanship as opposed to their status as "great films." I'm big on cinematography, particularly in widescreen ratios, so I dearly love Welles, Hitchcock, David Lean, Ford, & Kubrick.Here's my top 20:Casablanca (1941)Rear Window (1954)Seven Samurai (1954)To Catch a Thief (1955)The Searchers (1956)Rio Bravo (1959)Lawrence of Arabia (1962)From Russia With Love (1963)Cleopatra (1963)Doctor Zhivago (1965)The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly (1966)Fiddler on the Roof (1971)Young Frankenstein (1974)Back to the Future (1985)The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (1994)The Shawshank Redemption (1994)Clerks II (2006)The Departed (2006)Hot Fuzz (2006)Inglourious Basterds (2009)So, my list stretches over multiple decades. I will admit that I have a bias for pre-1970 films, as my favorite era of film is the post-Studio System era (1950-1967).
mikemoto: I finally saw Vertigo a few months back and not only would I not place it number one, I wouldn't even say it'shiatchcock's best. North by Northwest and Psycho are far superior movies.
simplicimus: Dr.Zom: It's Casablanca. Everybody knows it's Casablanca. No one ever says "Hey, let's watch Citizen Kane again tonight."That list was a pretentious pile of crap. Sunrise: a Song for Two Humans? Blow me.Casablanca is just insanely great. A bunch of contract actors and a B level script turned out to be so much more.
GentlemanJ: Seems clear to me that it's "The Godfather."
walrusonion: Why can't there be two classes of lists a Hayes Code List and a Post Hayes Code list? Y'know to give things made after the 50's a chance.
Marcus Aurelius: There can be only one.
