I was traveling most of the day and missed out. I think I would have been able to identify all of these except for 1331 which I'd never heard of. As far as having actually seen them, I've seen The PlayerCookie's Fortune and Gosford Park. So only three. You left off a couple of his '70s biggies that I've seen along with everybody else.

I left off NASHVILLE (1975) because we had already covered it in the first thousand titles we did. We also did COME BACK TO THE 5 AND DIME JIMMY DEAN JIMMY DEAN (1982) and A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION (2006).

I am saving A WEDDING (1978) for another list later. But we will definitely cover that one! And we will probably do PRET-A-PORTER (1994) as well.

I am struggling with all the earlier ones as usual.

1344 is Hondo. Yes.

1345 is Guys and Dolls. Yes.

1346 is Dr. Dolittle. Yes.

1347 Boy, I'm not sure. I wanted to say The Odessa File, which I've seen, but I think Jon Voight wore a mustache in that one. I'll have to wait for it to be identified.

1348 is Swing Shift. No.

1349 is Hercules? No.

1350 is Frida. No.

Only three I can say for sure I've seen.

1344 I absolutely enjoy tremendously.

Didn't see 1349 or 1350. 1348 I found to be mediocre.

1345 has a somewhat bad reputation  but I actually found entertaining.

1346 was just bad and I mean BAD (and not the 'good' bad either!). The rest of them I found to be okay.

One comment about Gosford Park:  I like the film, especially the interaction between Helen Mirren and Eileen Atkins (love her on Doc Martin and co-creator of Upstairs Downstairs - never given the recognition she should have received in this country (USA)).  A friend of my Dad kept complaining that he couldn't understand/hear the movie due to the British accents.

Also, didn't feel The Gingerbread Man was as good as some of the other Grisham adaptations.

I'd forgotten that THE GINGERBREAD MAN was based on a Grisham story. Altman's style as a director is so distinctive that he sort of put his own stamp on the material and yes, it does feel less Grisham-esque.

What do you dislike about it so much, if I may ask...?

It just seemed too overblown and silly for me. And I usually like Rex Harrison.

I do like silly films, and I do love animals but this movie just went overboard with it. Maybe that was the point, but it just wasn't my kind of 'silly'.

The main problem I have with DOCTOR DOLITTLE (1967) is that it's simply too long. It did not need to be 152 minutes long. They could have told that story in about 90-100 minutes.

The book is fantastic and much better!

Yes, the length certainly didn't help the film either.

I love ROBERT ALTMAN films and those are two of my favorites. 

I saw you mention QUINTET above... hmm.  Some cable channel shows it routinely though I've seen it multiple times probably at TCM.

Glad you're an Altman fan. 

QUINTET is a 20th Century Fox release. It airs occasionally on FXM Retro (formerly the Fox Movie Channel).

Saw the Chaplin M.V. (isn't he some sort of Bluebeard?)

Yes, he marries then murders his wives. Unfortunately, killing wife Martha Raye takes a lot more effort than he expected.

I can't figure out any of the ones pre-1970! Here's what little I do know:

1357 is Day of the Jackal. Yes.

1358 is 84 Charring Cross Road. Yes.

1359 I think the woman is Bridget Fonda, but I'm just not immediately remembering what film these two actors made together.

1360 Well ... Lonsesome Dove was a TV mini-series and I assume ineligible. I don't guess I know this one, either.

That was a hard list! Only two I'm absolutely sure I've seen, tied for my lowest ever.

Yes, the actress in 1359 is Bridget Fonda. 

1360 is a western feature film from the early 2000s.
