  5. Ranking 60 Walter Brennan Movies on His 118th Birthday

    Hey Cody.....Well we have a stalemate…..two to two. Great minds can’t always think the same things….lol.
  6. Ranking 60 Walter Brennan Movies on His 118th Birthday

    Hey Tom…..good point about Old Man Clanton….but I have to side with Sepiatone about The Westerner. Both are excellent roles from Brennan….surprised he did not play more of these types of roles…..versus so many comic sidekick roles. He was pretty evil in HTWWW too.
  7. Ranking 60 Walter Brennan Movies on His 118th Birthday

    Hey Sepiatone…well when you rank them the way we do….it unearth’s some very hard to find stats…..and it really shows how awesome his career was…..and this 60 is just the ones I could find box office information on. I agree with you about him being more evil in The Westerner…..in that one….he seem to realize how bad his actions were
  8. Ranking 60 Walter Brennan Movies on His 118th Birthday

    Hey Cody….your top two did very well in my rankings. Red River – his 5th biggest box office hit, his 8th best reviewed movie critics and audiences, tied for 8th when looking at Oscar nominations & wins and finally ranked 7th when you jam all three categories. My Darling Clementing – his 12th biggest box office hit, his 4th best reviewed movie critics and audiences, shut out when looking at Oscar nominations & wins and finally ranked 9th when you jam all three categories.
  9. Just added twenty movies to our Walter Brennan page. He and Cooper top the charts and sit at the bottom of the charts. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/walter-brennan-movies/

  11. Top Stars of the 1940s - statistically

    I have traveled across the country three times collecting this information....and I really think it is the best estimation of box office grosses out there. The actual gross will never be known....because back then they reported financials in "rental" numbers. As for Quigley....my granddad used to fill those surveys out every year.....John Wayne and Gary Cooper always made his list regardless if they had a down year or not. They just did not have great information back then....so the legends remained on the list every year....as well as the "Flavor of the Month"....as granddad would call stars like Sonja Henie. Quigley is a fun list to look at....but it is not accurate portrayal of the biggest stars in a given year. In recent times George Clooney finished 8th for the year and had one movie (The American) that bombed out at $32.00 million .....yet he still got a Quigley spot.
  12. Top Stars of the 1940s - statistically

    All 25 1940s Abbott and Costello movies are included. They were huge in the early 1940s...but pretty average by the end of the 1940s.....still 35th for the entire decade is pretty awesome. Ride 'em Cowboy (1942) $215.90 million in adjusted domestic gross Pardon My Sarong (1942) $207.60 million adjusted domestic gross Rio Rita (1942) $160.00 million in adjusted domestic gross Hold That Ghost (1941) $155.40 million in adjusted domestic gross The Wistful Widow of Wagon Gap (1947) $147.80 adjusted domestic gross Who Done It (1942) $145.30 million in adjusted domestic gross Hit The Ice (1943) $144.50 million in adjusted domestic gross It Ain't Hay (1943) $128.50 million in adjusted domestic gross Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) $124.80 million Buck Privates Come Home (1947) $123.20 million in adjusted domestic gross Keep em' Flying (1941) $120.70 million in adjusted domestic gross In The Navy (1941) $120.60 million in adjusted domestic gross Buck Privates (1941) $120.40 million in adjusted domestic gross Lost in a Harem (1944) $110.50 million in adjusted domestic gross In Society (1944) $93.50 million in adjusted domestic gross African Screams (1949) $81.70 million in adjusted domestic gross Abbott & Costello in Hollywood (1945) $75.80 million in adjusted domestic gross The Noose Hangs Loose (1948) $74.90 million in adjusted domestic gross Here Come The Co-Eds (1945) $68.90 million in adjusted domestic gross The Naughty Nineties (1945) $65.40 million in adjusted domestic gross Little Giant (1946) $65.20 million in adjusted domestic gross The Time of Their Lives (1946) $64.80 million in adjusted domestic gross Mexican Hayride (1948) $55.50 million in adjusted domestic gross Abbott & Costello Meet the Killer Boris Karloff (1949) $36.30 million One Night in the Tropics (1940) $25.80 million in adjusted domestic gross
  13. Ranking 63 Van Johnson Movies on his 100th Birthday

    Abbott and Costello finished in 35th place with 2.70 billion in adjusted box office gross.....if you pick only the years 1941 - 1944....they do much better..as they come in 12th place using that time guideline. Walter Brennan was a 3 time Oscar winner who helped put butts in the seats.....pretty much what Christopher Walken and Samuel L. Jackson do today. So yes he is a supporting actor...but we did not want to exclude him from the list. Here is our 1950s Top Stars Page. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/top-movie-stars-1950s/ It has taken us over six years to research all of this data....glad it is creating some conversation.

    http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/top-movie-stars-1940s/ We looked at over 1,300 movies...and this is our Top 15 box office stars of 1940 Top 15 Adjusted Domestic Box Office Leaders 1940 – 1949Van Johnson $4835.70 million in adjusted domestic gross Bing Crosby $4613.20 million in adjusted domestic gross Dorothy Lamour $4349.30 million in adjusted domestic gross Walter Brennan $4125.00 million in adjusted domestic gross Dana Andrews $4053.00 million in adjusted domestic gross John Wayne $3987.20 million in adjusted domestic gross Bob Hope $3978.00 million in adjusted domestic gross Ray Milland $3865.70 million in adjusted domestic gross Gary Cooper $3817.60 million in adjusted domestic gross Humphrey Bogart $3675.00 million in adjusted domestic gross Spencer Tracy $3606.20 million in adjusted domestic gross Judy Garland $3529.20 million in adjusted domestic gross Cary Grant $3502.00 million in adjusted domestic gross Fred MacMurray $3478.40 million in adjusted domestic gross Walter Pidgeon $3410.90 million in adjusted domestic gross
  15. We started with 500 plus actors....got to the Best 64 actors.....used a random number generator to compare the all-time great's movies.....and in head to head matchups....we have eliminated 60 of the actors....and have 4 left.....Cooper, Stewart, Lancaster and Holden. Means NOTHING...but it sure has been fun. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/2017-umr-actor-movie-tournament/
