Well ... 1760 is Conan the Barbarian. That's the only one I'm absolutely sure about (unless it's the sequel!) I'm struggling with all of the others. 1751 might be Wings. I don't remember if there was a drag scene in that or not, it's been so long since I've seen it. 1756 might be The Sun Shines Bright, John Ford's partial remake of Judge Priest, which I watched on YouTube about a year ago. I'm just going to have to wait for the others to be identified.

You are correct about 1756 and 1760.

Seen 1753 (with Claude Raines (sp?), Garfield, and Dead End Kids) but forgot name

1758 looks like Frenzy (which I really never cared for)

Waiting for names of others.  I only saw film clips of Wings.

You're on the right track with 1753.

I've seen They Made a Criminal, though I couldn't remember the title, and I've seen Come to the Stable. The actresses' faces are obvious to me now that they've been identified, but I didn't recognize them before. So, I've seen four.

SPOILERS AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF.

 

 

 

1761. Topaze (1933)

1762. The Penalty (1941)

1763. The Southerner (1945)

1764. In a Lonely Place (1950)

1765. The Last Wagon (1956)

1766. The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967)

1767. ????

1768. Quadrophenia (1979)

1769. Night Mother (1986)

1770. Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992)

I could stare at 1767 forever and I'm not going to guess it. If I made up my own title it would be "Driving School The Hard Way". The guy with his back to the camera looks like Cary Grant, but since you usually do these things  chronologically it can't be because Grant' s last film was in 1966.  I'm somewhat guessing on 1769 since I think that is Ann Bancroft and Sissy Spacek, but their faces are not entirely visible at that angle.  If I am right I have seen the nine I have identified. 

1766 - Poor Sharon Tate. My sister and I stayed up late in 1976 to watch this on the late movie back before all they did in the middle of the night is sell Shamwows.  We both asked ourselves - Would we be watching this if it were not for how she died and we were curious about what kind of actress she was/would have been?  The answer was no, Her being murdered by Manson's group is completely why we were watching.

I think 1766 is one of the funniest films I've ever seen re: vampires.  Sharon Tate's biggest role (that I remember) was in the original Valley of the Dolls.  I remember the Tate-Lobianco (sp?) murders.  I can't watch Hollywoodland because of that (not sure of title - the one with Brad and Leo that rewrote history).

Saw most of the others.  1764 is my favorite (great film with great performances).

SPOILER WARNING IF YOU WANT TO GUESS YOURSELF 

 

1771 - Lloyds of London (1936)
1772 - The Roaring Twenties (1939)
1773 Angel And the Badman (1947)
1774 - Intruder In the Dust (1949)
1775 - Young Bess (1953)
1776 - The Rainmaker (1956)
1777 - King of the Roaring Twenties (1961)
1778 Pretty Poison (1968)
1779 Badlands (1973)
1780   ???

1780 - Denzel Washington, looking good in a suit, in a film made after 1973. That could be a lot of films. 
I have no idea. 

1774 - If you have never seen "Intruder In the Dust" then please do so at your earliest opportunity. 
David Brian as a good guy and also probably one of the first if not the first film by a major studio to 
show an African American demonstrating some agency. 

1777 - This film is a mess. It pushes a romance into the film where one really does not belong, and 
I have no idea what the motivation of the main character is. This is one of about four films made about
Arnold Rothstein. No two of them remotely look like they are describing the same person. 

I have seen 9 out of the 10. Maybe all ten depending on what 1780 is.

Clarification, just in case I end up looking like an idiot. I am being informed by the system that Ls DoorMat has replied as I'm 99 per cent finished typing this. Since I'm so close to posting, I'm going to wait and finish this first before looking.

1772 is The Roaring Twenties. Yes.

1773 is Angel and the Badman. No

1776 is The Rainmaker. Yes.

1778 is Pretty Poison. No.

1779 is Badlands. Yes.

1780 is Philadelphia. No.

So, I think I've seen three.

Edit after looking: Oh, Lloyds of London. I saw about the first half hour of that, but I'm not counting it as one I've seen.

The Denzel Washington flick was an early one for him, while he was still on St. Elsewhere. You can see how young he looks in the publicity photo I posted. He was awarded an NAACP Image award for his portrayal, since he was playing a successful black businessman. And in those days blacks were usually depicted as criminals or comic relief in mainstream movies.

Is it "Power"? I saw that a long time ago. I don't think it did well but I do remember his portrayal and liked it very much.  So I have seen all ten then.

Yeah, it's POWER (1986) directed by Sidney Lumet.

Incidentally, we will have a Special Theme later in September focusing on ten more films by Sidney Lumet.

Getting on very late today. Surprised to see no other guesses yet. While I recognize many of the actors, I'm not identifying almost any of the movies. The only one I can identify is 1789, which is Gremlins, so I know I've seen one. I will have to wait to learn what the others are.
