    2) 1939 – Gone with the Wind, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,The Wizard of Oz, Stagecoach, Wuthering Heights, Ninotchka, Goodbye Mr. Chips, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beau Geste, The Women, Dark Victory, Destry Rides Again, Gunga Din, Dodge City, Juarez

    3) 2007 – Juno, Michael Clayton, There Will Be Blood, Knocked Up, The Bourne Ultimatum, Into the Wild, No Country for Old Men, Lars and the Real Girl, Transformers, Ratatouille, The Simpsons Movie, Hot Fuzz, I Am Legend, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 3:10 to Yuma, 300, Gone Baby Gone, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Persepolis, Zodiac, Meet the Robinson, Waitress, Bug, A Mighty Heart, Surf’s Up, Rescue Dawn, Talk to Me

    4)  1982 – E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Gandhi, Blade Runner, Tron, The Thing, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Poltergeist, Tootsie, Star Trek III: The Wrath of Khan, Pink Floyd’s The Wall, The Dark Crystal, First Blood, The Verdict, Sophie’s Choice, An Officer and a Gentleman, Missing, Victor Victoria, Das Boot, Diner, Rocky III

    5) 1962 – Lawrence of Arabia, The Manchurian Candidate, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, Cape Fear, Lolita, Dr. No, Days of Wine and Roses, The Miracle Worker, The Longest Day, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?, Birdman of Alcatraz, Jules et Jim, The Music Man, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, How the West Was Won, Lonely Are the Brave, The Four Days of Naples, The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, David and Lisa, Gypsy, Electra

    But 1946 is a neglected year by the fanboys. Yet, it has some of the greatest films of all time.

    Film-Noir was at its height as is evidence with Gilda, The Razor’s Edge, The Big Sleep, The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Killers, Notorious

    We have a David Lean British drama – Great Expectations

    We have a true American story – It’s a Wonderful Life 

    We have a great Western – My Darling Clementine

    We have a war-time drama about the negative effects of war – The Best Years of Our Lives

    and not listed…

    a musical animation-live action blend – Song of the South (for which James Baskett as Uncle Remus became the first black man to be given an Oscar, albeit an honorary one just four months before his untimely death)

    a big David O. Selznick epic (albeit a flop in theatres) – Duel in the Sun

    and many more

    What’s your favorite of those listed?
