  1. I'm not sure either. DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE has been done a lot. Dracula, Sherlock Holmes, and Robin Hood are the most filmed characters, but in a variety of stories.

    TopBilled's latest pick

    You two are both talking about titles I want to see. SOLDIER BLUE is in a book I have entitled "500 Essential Cult Movies", and its one of only three in the western chapter I haven't seen. Thanks again for pointing me towards another one I wanted to see being on Amazon Prime. Michael Mann is one of my favorite directors, and I have never been able to see THE JERICHO MILE. I wish they'd make it more readily available.

    1953 will be the first year with a tie for "Larry's Choice", and as much as I love GLEN OR GLENDA? (and I really do), it isn't one of them. If that doesn't whet your appetite, I don't know what can.

    1) The "1001 Movies" list that I use is actually 1169 titles. I have compiled all the films from the various editions, up to and including films from 2014. 2) I list the films with the year listed in the book. Whether or not that's the correct year, I don't know. I think the books are published in the UK originally, so they may use different release years. If there's a problem, take it up with editor Steven Jay Schneider and/or Barron's publishing. 3) GLEN OR GLENDA? is timeless, of all times and of none, residing both within and outside of our conventional concepts of time and space. Gaze in wonder and..."Pull the strings! Pull the strings!"

    Do you mean George Segal? He plays the banjo, and is currently on The Goldbergs, but he hasn't won an Oscar. He was nominated once for VIRGINIA WOOLF.
