  • Bogie56 changed the title to Your Favourite Performances from 1929 to present are...

Some may notice that I have changed the title of this thread from "Your Favourite Performances from 1930 to present are..." to "Your Favourite Performances from 1929 to present are..."

I haven't seen that many films from 1929.  Just 26 and many of those were not that good.  So, I am interested in reading the opinions of others about feature film performances from 1929.

I will follow this with my own meagre list.  

Remember, for the purposes of this thread we are going by the release of films by calendar year and NOT following the Oscars which were done in a split year in its infancy.

I've seen 62 films from 1929. However, it's been so long since I've seen most of them, I couldn't really comment on the performances definitively. A lot of the films that I ranked highly from that year aren't really acting showcases, either. I'll list the movies that I ranked a 7/10 or higher (excluding shorts), and any performances that I can recall as being noteworthy.

  • Man with a Movie Camera
  • Old and New
  • The Cocoanuts
  • The Mysterious Island (Lionel Barrymore)
  • The Great Gabbo (Erich von Stroheim was fun)
  • The Bishop Murder Case (Basil Rathbone)
  • Where East Is East (Lon Chaney)
  • Welcome Danger
  • The Virginian
  • The Trespasser
  • Thuderbolt
  • A Throw of Dice
  • Paris Bound (Fredric March)
  • The Mysterious Dr. Fu Manchu (Warner Oland)
  • Marianne (Marion Davies)
  • The Love Parade
  • The Letter (Jeanne Eagels)
  • Glorifying the American Girl
  • Woman in the Moon (Fritz Rasp)
  • Desert Nights
  • I Graduated, But...
  • Bulldog Drummond (Ronald Colman, Montagu Love)
  • The Broadway Melody
  • Blackmail
  • Applause
  • Weary River
  • Pandora's Box (Louise Brooks)
