    NickAndNora34's Disney Movie Journey

    NickandNora34: Terrific idea. I love anything done chronologically. I'm currently watching movies released in 1957 (having gone through 37-56). I had trouble finding some Disney live-action movies from early 50s. Got fortunate that a local library still had a VHS copy of Song of the South. Currently watching the 55-56 Disney serial The Adventures of Spin and Marty.

    1948 - one opinion

    TopBilled: You are right about Key Largo and the supporters thought of more than the leads. I read an interview from Bacall once that she didn't like the film because she didn't consider it a Bogart/Bacall movie. I understand what she's saying, but it's my favorite movie of the ones they made together.

    Bethluvsfilms: I'm right with you on your individual picks. 1) Olivia 2) Huston deserved the win; and agree Robinson should have been nominated 3) And Trevor But I chose Clifton Webb because I think he made what would have been a bad movie watchable.

All My SonsBest Actor: Clifton Webb (Sitting Pretty)Best Actress: Olivia de Havilland (Snake Pit, The)Supporting Actor: Walter Huston (Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The)Supporting Actress: Claire Trevor (Key Largo)Should have been nominated: Edward G. Robinson (All My Sons); NOT Dan Dailey (When My Baby Smiles at Me); Katherine Hepburn (State of the Union); NOT Ingrid Bergman (Joan of Arc).It was a great year for female leads: arguments could be made for Best Actress for de Havilland, Jane Wyman, Irene Dunne and Barbara StanwyckNote: I did not include The Fallen Idol because it was eligible for Academy Awards the following year.

    1947 movies

    TopBilled: I didn't know that about Craig. Which ones? He's nothing like Gable (I guess no one really is), but I liked him a lot at times, especially The Human Comedy.

    Per the original post: papryusbeetle's mention of Fear in the Night was the 80th title in 1947 to get a vote in my poll.

    1947 movies

    TopBilled: You make a real good point about the major stars back full-time. I've often thought about movies that Stewart, Montgomery, Gable, etc. may have made while away. Wonder if there's been stuff written about this. But, at the same time, it's not real fair to think about because they were all doing something far more important.

    1947 - one opinion

    TopBilled: I chose Martha Raye for Supporting Actress and had a feeling you would mention her. I agree with you on Hume Cronyn's performance. It's a must see, especially for those only familiar with his "quiet" roles. I chose Richard Widmark. But, of course, Santa won over the sadistic performances.
