    Movies About Movies - Need Suggestions

    Thanks for all the suggestions...our Movies About Movies Page went from a little over 100 movies to 131 movies. Did not have box office grosses on some of the suggestions...so I sadly could not include them. This is the 42 movies listed that were made before 1968. Thanks again for the help. https://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/movies-about-movies/ 1928 The Cameraman (1928) 1928 Show People (1928) 1930 Free and Easy (1930) 1932 What Price Hollywood (1932) 1933 Bombshell (1933) 1933 Going Hollywood (1933) 1937 A Star Is Born (1937) AA Best Picture Nom 1937 Hollywood Hotel (1937) 1937 It Happened in Hollywood (1937) 1937 Something To Sing About (1937) 1938 Boy Meets Girl (1938) 1939 Second Fiddle (1939) 1940 The Bank Dick (1940) 1941 Hellzapoppin' (1941) 1941 Sullivan's Travels (1941) 1941 Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (1941) 1943 Crazy House (1943) 1946 Without Reservations (1946) 1947 The Perils of Pauline (1947) 1947 Merton of the Movies (1947) 1949 It's a Great Feeling (1949) 1950 Sunset Blvd. (1950) AA Best Picture Nom 1950 In a Lonely Place (1950) 1952 Singin' in the Rain (1952) 1952 The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) 1952 The Star (1952) 1954 A Star Is Born (1954) 1954 The Barefoot Contessa (1954) 1955 The Big Knife (1955) 1955 Abbott & Costello Meet The Keystone Kops (1955) 1957 Man of a Thousand Faces (1957) 1957 The Buster Keaton Story (1957) 1958 Too Much Too Soon (1958) 1962 Two Weeks in Another Town (1962) 1963 8½ (1963) 1964 Paris When It Sizzles (1964) 1965 Inside Daisy Clover (1965) 1965 Harlow (Embassy Pictures) (1965) 1965 Harlow (Theatrofilm) (1965) 1966 The Oscar (1966) 1967 Valley of the Dolls (1967) 1968 The Legend of Lylah Clare (1968)

    Thank you Ray F. I will see if I have box office grosses on Crazy Horse and The Death Kiss. Hellzapoppin was a very very big hit back in the day. Once again…thanks for the suggestions.

    So we put together a movie ranking page on Movies About Movies. Overall we included 111 movies, but only 20 from 1928 to 1959. So my question is...which movies need to be added to the page. https://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/movies-about-movies/ 1928 The Cameraman (1928) 1928 Show People (1928) 1930 Free and Easy (1930) 1932 What Price Hollywood (1932) 1937 A Star Is Born (1937) AA Best Picture Nom 1937 Something To Sing About (1937) 1939 Second Fiddle (1939) 1941 Hellzapoppin' (1941) 1941 Sullivan's Travels (1941) 1946 Without Reservations (1946) 1947 The Perils of Pauline (1947) 1950 Sunset Blvd. (1950) AA Best Picture Nom 1950 In a Lonely Place (1950) 1952 Singin' in the Rain (1952) 1952 The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) 1952 The Star (1952) 1954 A Star Is Born (1954) 1954 The Barefoot Contessa (1954) 1955 Abbott & Costello Meet The Keystone Kops (1955) 1957 The Buster Keaton Story (1957)

    Ranking Conrad L. Hall Movies

    It took us over 7,000 movie pages....but we finally got around to giving a cinematographer some attention. Conrad Hall got 10 Oscar nominations in just over 30 movies....not a bad percentage at all! https://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/conrad-l-hall-movies/

    Any Ideas Which Actor This Is?

    Thanks for the thoughts. Sterling Hayden does fit lots of these clues....but as far as I can tell none of his 6 kids had a tragic ending like that. Hayden did take his kids out to sea.....which he was in contempt of court....but returned with all the kids....he came back when his money ran out. And as Hibi points out...Hayden was a high school drop out....so not thinking English Prep Schools were even in Hayden's vocabulary.

    Any Ideas Which Actor This Is?

    We got the following comment on our website (UltimateMovieRankings.com) I nor any of my regular readers have any idea who this actor is....any ideas in the land of TCM? "I'm trying to find which US male star of 50-60s was a sailor and lost a son off a ship in a storm. The actor came to UK with diplomat father at US embassy and they put the actor in a UK private school. I was thinking it was Sterling Hayden but cannot find any link to him losing a son off a ship. Father then lost interest in acting and went sailing. Could it have been one called Robert?" - Rose White

    The Doris Day Appreciation Thread

    Well...we are proud of ourselves.

    Hey Lawrence...those Quigley Top Money Makers Lists are fun....but I do not feel they were too accurate. In baseball they give out Gold Glove awards...once you win one....there is a high probability that you will win numerous more. I think those polls were that way. John Wayne was a huge hit making machine for decades....but he did have some off years between 1939 and 1976...yet...he was always on the poll. My father-in-law and his father ran the Auburn Theater in Auburn, Alabama for years.....and he remembers when they filled out those polls for Quigley.....they did not look at numbers....just filled out the poll based on popular stars versus box office receipts from the year. Still...I miss that Quigley no longer does their poll. I think their last one was in 2013.

    Well...we are proud of ourselves.

    Hey Dougie B.....in the book....supporting actors and actresses taken out of the rankings for the exact reasoning listed in your comment. Of the 36 stars listed in response to James query...15 of them made our Top 50....so 21 of them failed to make the book. Thanks for the feedback.

    Actress Georgia Engel (1948-2019)

    Rest in Peace. I was just reading about the Mary Tyler Moore Show just last night.
