What comes next...

I have been using the same lottery style to pick a year from the 1930s, 40s and 50s; so I had a total of 13 options. The winner is satisfying. :)

Of course, youtube jerks disabled my audio song for Amelie. Just go to the end of it to see the winner. :) it was all one-shot and no cheating.

Sorry it took so long for me to respond...1957...that seems so recent. I have not seen Heaven Knows, Mr. Alison, although I am a Kerr fan so I can't wait to see how that turns out. Of those I saw I'd rank them: Anna

But it's been a while.

PS. Could you head over to my page and take the poll [yes another one].

could you believe I had only seen Peyton Place? :P [and Eve now].

I love polls. My pleasure

Encore Entertainment said...

Really? Only Peyton Place. I wanted to be Russ Tamblyn. Despite the schticky role, he became a favourite actor of mine with his performance.

Alex in Movieland said...

None of the performances impressed me. To me, it was mostly a dull flick. But I'll hand it to it: having 5 acting nominations is not easy to get!

Runs Like A Gay said...

I hate to say it Alex, but there's a reason you haven't seen these films.

Possibly the least exciting Best Actress lineup of the 50's.

Alex in Movieland said...

Runs, that's not true :D

52 looks boring
53 is very weak

Runs Like A Gay said...

OK, I'll let you get away with calling '52 boring. Although the Bette/Joan both losing angle my have some mileage.

But never diss the Hepburn. Roman Holiday is a wonderful film with a totally believeable and cute central performance by Audrey. Deborah Kerr (drama - should be reserved but is slutty) and Ava Gardner (comedy - should be slutty but is quite reserved) both give great performances.

cute is indeed the highlight of Audrey's performance.
