Films of the 1950s: Bonus Films

Post by Petri » Fri Jul 03, 2020 11:14 am

I open this thread although the 1959 poll is still on.

So just like previous year we will have a bonus round

Every person that has voted in the first round gets the opportunity to select two films. You may select any film from the 1950s that hasn't qualified yet to proceed to the next round. An overview of the selected films can be found below in this thread. The chosen movies will be automatically added to the final poll. You can notify me which film you would like to be added through a private message or just post in this thread.

The deadline is on 2nd of August. After this bonus round, we will start the final round.

If you want to pick a 1959 movie (that has a chance to qualify otherwise) you can make a conditional select (movie x from 1959 and if it qualifies then movie y from 195z). We all know that movies like Some Like It Hot, North by Northwest and 400 Blows will be in the final for sure so there's no need to mention them.

I don't know if this will be of use to anyone else, but I put the list so far in Letterboxd form to make it easier to narrow it down to the movies I still need to see. Looks like I'm at 97/112, with 7 of the remaining on the streaming services I use.

I already chose Imitation of Life...I think that means you can choose something else?

Unrelated, but Pickup on South Street would have been my third choice!

Oops! Sorry, BleuPanda, you are right. My second choice is To Catch a Thief.
