  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/van-johnson-movies/ Just some of the stats.....27 movies between 1943 and 1954 that would be $100 million hits in todays dollars. Over $7 Billion in Domestic Gross. 17 movies that earned at least one Oscar nomination. Happy Birthday Van.
  15. 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.
  16. 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/
  17. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/1941-top-grossing-movies/ Lots of hard to find stats here.

  19. Statistical look at 20 Kathryn Grayson Movies

    So we found domestic box office grosses on all of her movies and worldwide box office grosses on 19 of 20 movies. So glad MGM kept great records of their movies.
  20. Ranking 64 Clark Gable Movies on His 116th Birthday.....tons of stats...including domestic and worldwide box office. All on one page..no ads....just The King and his stats. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/clark-gable-movies/
  21. So in my time zone...it is 12/9/16.....so to me Kirk Douglas is now 100 years old. Happy birthday to Mr. Douglas. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/kirk-douglas-movies/
  22. Ranking 71 Kirk Douglas Movies on His 100th Birthday

    Hey NipkowDisc.....mmmm....interesting.....well besides Hope and Douglas....George Burns popped into my head....then I drew a blank....so I cheated and did an internet search.....and the results were pretty limited....but Lloyd Nolan and Charles Lane made it too....Nolan and Lane were some pretty good character actors. Thanks for getting the brain to do some work...it is greatly appreciated.
  23. Ranking 71 Kirk Douglas Movies on His 100th Birthday

    Hey filmlover293.....you are 100% correct...Mourning Becomes Electra did get those 2 Oscar nominations....which I have now corrected on the page. Thanks for noticing that and bringing it to my attention. Not sure how I missed that especially....since Rosalind Russell was supposed to win the Oscar for that movie....and was really really surprised when Loretta Young's name got called instead of hers. Thanks for the heads up on when it plays again on TCM.
  24. Ranking 71 Kirk Douglas Movies on His 100th Birthday

    Hey jakeem......thanks for checking out my Kirk page. When I originally wrote this page I did one on his son the same exact day. I have had fun watching the views come in.....as I wondered who would have the best results....so 5 years later....here are the current results...Kirk 29,302 views...Michael 12,542.....not thinking we will need a recount...lol. As for War Wagon....love that movie as well. It would be in my Top 5 Kirk movies...I love how he and Wayne interact. It is a movie I can re-watch all the time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Mr. Kirk Douglas.
