I did a Best Of list for the 1950's but I first did an official list for 1960.

I wasn't sure where to put this since Bogie's thread was at 1983 by this point, so I decided to put my own topic naming my picks for the 1950's which I missed due to being busy during that time. So here's 1950.

 

 

 

I think this was a nice idea, JSfan.  I've made note of your 1950 choices in my tally.  What year did you drop into the other favourite performances thread?  Did you do a best of the decade list for the 50's?
