    Hard choice between Wilder & Hitchcock.  Wilder it is.

    Billy Wilder hands down

    Billy Wilder is the only person to have four films in my Top 30
    03. Some Like It Hot
    07. The Apartment
    11. Sunset Boulevard
    20. The Seven Year Itch
     
    And three of them are from the 1950s

    I would have Bergman up here, as my #2 behind Hitchcock for this decade in particular. All three of the films that I would consider his masterpieces, The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries and Smiles of a Summer Night, were in this decade along with other classics like Summer Interlude and Summer With Monika (he really liked Summer, didn’t he?).

    Hitchcock does get my vote, because this was the decade of Strangers on a Train, Dial M for Murder, Rear Window, Vertigo, North by Northwest and other ones like To Catch a Thief, The Man who Knew too Much and The Trouble with Harry. That might just be the best decade for any filmmaker ever.
