  • Bern1960 on Donna Reed MoviesI always liked her show. I have seen 17 of her movies. I liked her role in The Far Horizons and The Last Time I Saw Paris. Another great page.
  • Lupino on Orson Welles MoviesJust remembered another Welles movie showing up on neither chart: F for Fake. Although it is ages ago that I've seen this semi documentary about Forgery, I remember this Welles directed film (he also narrated) for its inclusion of Randolph Hearst and Marion Davis as well as his talking about the famous War of the Worlds Radio program.
  • pierre bressy on Request Hotlinehello Bruce the part was aunt Pittypatt Hamilton she plaid in Camille Whit Garbo and Angel and the Flame of Orleans with Dietrich she was like Miss Thelma Ritter at that time
  • Lupino on Orson Welles MoviesHey Bruce, interesting to see that you created 2 charts for Orson Welles! I think the fact that you didn't find any box office information on so many of his films is due to the fact that most of them are european productions likely without any theatrical release in the US. Maybe there are some obscurities among them, but certainly not all of them! But first things first: I've seen 16 films listed on the first chart. Citizen Kane is a must see, it really changed the way of filmmaking. Still, it is sort of an "ArtMovie", maybe not really...
  • phil simmons on CommentsWow that was quick! Thanks for considering my comment and updating the page. I guess this means the pages of the relevant co-stars of the updated films may need to be revised as well eventually, but...one step at a time :) I see what you mean about the Hour of the Gun. So it did bombed badly at the box office. Not surprising given its lack of high dramatic moments, though it was a credible, revisionist Wyatt Earp story with strong performances from Garner and Jason Robards. A bit surprised at the low rating of Skin Game. I think it...
  • SteinHOF on February 19th- Donna Reed Progress & Stephen King Page UpdatedAlways thought Donna was one of the sexiest stars of yesterday.
  • BOB on Shirley Temple MoviesSTEVE 1 I never became too acquainted with the Shirley Temple childhood era movies as when I started watching films in the early 1950s her heyday was well past and her movies were seldom given reruns over here with the exception of those that she made as a young woman such as the Duke’s 1948 Fort Apache and Clifton Webb’s 1949 Mr Belvedere Goes to College. Nevertheless as a movie buff I have a keen historical interest in her career and therefore welcomed your video just as I did Bruce’s statistical page. 2 My unfamiliarity with the true ‘Shirley Temple’...
  • Lupino on Margaret Sullavan MoviesAfter the strain of watching 3 hours of Eugene O'Neil last weekend I "rewarded" myself by checking out Cry 'Havoc'! again last night. Strangely, along with So red the Rose, I hardly had any recollection about that movie apart from the fact that my brain had stored it under "good movies" watched. And it is a good one in my opinion. Though it can't betray its stage origins, it has a lot to offer. The three leading ladies are very good, with Sullavan's character seemingly cool and detached, but inwardly very feminine and vulnerable, while Sothern and Blondell are portraying...
  • BOB on Betty Grable MoviesSTEVE 1 I see that like Bruce you have been busy in my absence. Many of Betty Grable’s films, like those of Mae West usually seemed so similar to me that often I could take them or leave them. However just as I had a great academic interest in West’s actual career and not her movies themselves I found Betty’s career fascinating too as in her heyday she like Elvis, Shirley Temple as a child and Joan Crawford was the mainstay of almost all of her movies whereas other stars had often the support of performers of their own status...
  • BOB on John Wayne MoviesHI BRUCE 1 As you know Wayne along with the likes of Widmark, Peck, Stewart, Laddie, Brando and Glenn Ford have been my favourite male movie stars and I have followed their careers almost all of my movie-going life but I have learned many NEW things about them and my top actresses such as Crawford, Day and Durbin since using your site. It is fair to say as well that it has been fun having my memory refreshed via Steve's video site on some of the graphics of the movies of my faves. 2 I used to holiday in a...
  • BOB on Jim Carrey MoviesHI BRUCE: {Copied to both Welles and Carrey pages} 1 JIM CARREY Thanks for your response. As is often the case I'm the odd man out. The Truman Show was not my cup of tea. 2 ORSON WELLES It always surprised me that Welles made AFI's legends lists as he was never big box office and Citizen Kane, Magnificent Ambersons (in which he did not appear) Third Man, Touch of Evil and a just a few others are usually the films with which he is most associated with artistically. However maybe AFI was going in for quality instead of quantity...

  • Cogerson on Jim Carrey MoviesI understood the meaning....and welcome back...:)
  • Cogerson on Jim Carrey MoviesHey Bob 1. I am sure lots of people check out the last Dirty Harry movie and are shocked to see Carrey pop up as the crazed drug guy in that one. 2. Ace Ventura was a surprise hit.....and for about 15 years he never looked back....but like all comic actors time caught up with him. My sons are a great example...they loved Carrey and Sandler.....now they act like I am crazy when I remind them of that fact. 3. I have only wanted to leave a movie theater before a movie ends a few times....but Carry has two of...
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Bob. 1. Glad you had a good time on your holiday. 2. Very cool...we both have 8 year old Emilys in our lifes. 3. I work with a guy that is a huge westerns fan.....and he especially likes John Wayne....so it seemed like a good time to finally update the Wayne page with the Warner Brothers ledgers numbers I found a few months ago. 4. So the Duke is right around the average....makes sense to me. 5. I agree his career box office probably tops everybody....and it is still missing 60 of his movies with about 40 of them...
  • Cogerson on Request HotlineGot it.
  • Cogerson on Request HotlineHey Pierre...I will add her to the list....but I must admit...I have never even heard of Laura Hope Crews.....without doing an IMDb search...I am guessing she was the daughter of Rhett and Scarlett...probably wrong....but I will look her up. Still thanks for the suggestion....it is greatly appreciated.
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Søren....glad to see somebody that I agrees with me. Breakfast Club is a classic....and he by far has the best role in the movie. I saw From The Hip a few times in packed theaters....and each time there was major laughter...especially in the courtroom scenes...which seemed crazy were actually based on real life court room events. As for Blue City...I still like the Ry Cooder music...but I acknowledge this is not a good movie...but I found it entertaining. Actually since writing this page...I have had an itch to watch one of the Nelson movies....apparently I never bought Blue City...
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Dan....I have enough 1980s Nelson admiration for the both of us....lol. Thanks for the reviews of Broderick on stage. I thought Broderick made a good Ferris Bueller....plus he was good in War Games. One day...a Demi Moore page might pop up....she had a good run when she was one of the top actresses working. Thanks for the comment and visit.
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Steve...finally getting a Judd Nelson UMR page completed might be a "mike drop"....as you always want to go out on top....lol. I did not have posters...but I wore out some VHS tapes back then. I have seen Fandango, Making The Grade and Breakfast Club...at least 30 times each. Heck I had a buddy who worked in a theater....and he got us in for many viewings of the Breakfast Club. So Ralph Macchio is your Judd Nelson of that era....I think Ralph was 35 when he made The Karate Kid...lol. Giving Tom Hanks credit? I never thought I would see...
  • Cogerson on Dev Patel MoviesHey Steve....you are so right...I think this one took about a day longer than the Ray Milland one....lol. Good stats on Wallace Beery....and you are right....Patel's grandparents were probably not born when he passed away. I am sure you had to get out pen and paper to do this tally count....I know I did.....lol. Hey...you gotta give the man credit....he has anchored two movies that got Best Picture Oscar nomination....Judd Nelson does not have one yet...lol. Tally Count. Helakoski…..6 Dev Patel Movies Watched Cogerson….6 Dev Patel Movies Watched SteveLensman….3 Dev Patel Movies Watched Thanks as always for the visit and...
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey SteinHOF....I agree with you. I had not thought about non movie legends making an impact like him....seems there could be a decent page on performers like.....pretty much one hit wonders....let's see....who else would make that list? Larry Parks comes to mind....I will have to do some more thinking. Thanks for getting the brain working. :)
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Craig....got it.
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Craig....I agree with you....his role in that movie has stood the test of time. Thanks for the visit.
  • Cogerson on Judd Nelson MoviesHey Helakoski…I imagine he gets referenced that all the time. Sorry your Judd Nelson tally is not as impressive as your Dev Patel tally….still your visit is appreciated
  • Cogerson on Dev Patel MoviesHey Helakoski....thanks for commenting on our Dev Patel page. Not only our tallies the same number....but it is the same movies seen and not seen....as I also have not seen Lion and About Cherry. I knew About Cherry existed....I just did not know he was in it. Glad you liked the trivia. Tally Count. Helakoski.....6 Dev Patel Movies Watched Cogerson....6 Dev Patel Movies Watched SteveLensman....3 Dev Patel Movies Watched
  • Cogerson on Greer Garson MoviesHey Lupino....thanks for checking out and commenting on our Greer Garson page. I enjoyed reading your mini-reviews on so many of her movies. Your 20 is impressive but not gold impressive...lol. 1st Lyle. 24 Garson movies watched 2nd Lupino 20 Garson movies watched 3rd Flora 17 Garson movies watched Larry. 12 Garson movies watched Bern1960 10 Garson movies watched Cogerson 6 Garson movies watched Steve 2 Garson movies watched Laurent 2 Garson movies watched Pride and Prejudice was a decent hit ....maybe not a blockbuster....looking at the rest of the numbers....MGM took a 17% loss on the movie. Glad you...
  • Cogerson on Greer Garson MoviesHey John....thanks for the information on her color versus black and white movies. You are right....seems MGM missed an opportunity there. Same thing with her not getting a role in The Ziegfeld Follies. Good information....thanks for sharing.
  • Cogerson on Greer Garson MoviesHey John 1. Thanks for the input and thoughts on Greer Garson. 2. Glad she made such an solid impression on you. 3. I have seen 4 of the 6 MGM movies you liked so much. She got off to such a good start with Goodbye, Mr. Chips. 4. I have seen none of the Post MGM movies you liked so much. 5. Interesting point about her getting such a late start to her career....seems she successfully avoided the curse of 39. 6. Yep...lying about their age seems like a good career decision. 7. I have been wanting to check...
  • BOB on Jim Carrey MoviesPOSTSCRIPT TO MY PREVIOUS POST The WW figure quoted for Dead Pool is not understood.
  • Cogerson on Kate Winslet MoviesHey SteinHOF....I agree with you....she is a fine actress....but a strong box office career is not one of her strengths.
  • BOB on Jim Carrey MoviesBRUCE 1 When all those years ago I watched Jim in a small part in Eastwood’s Dead Pool I never would have imagined that over the next two decades or so he would be a top box office star with a run of movies that would generate an adjusted worldwide gross of nearly $8 billion according to the table above. 2 For me one of the beauties of your site has always been that the comprehensive stats on a star’s entire career adjusted to a standard inflationary base year makes it easy to quickly identify the box office highs and...
  • BOB on John Wayne MoviesHELLO BRUCE 1 The party that I holidayed with included my grandson and granddaughter. I looked in on this site as often as I could and noticed the birthday greetings post a few days ago. My own granddaughter is 8 years of age and her name is Emily. 2 By now most of the pages on individual stars must have had their updates but Wayne’s career was so prolific and successful that he undoubtedly deserves the additional attention given to him in this expanded page. 3 We have noted previously that in the classic era foreign grosses fell well short...
  • pierre bressy on Request Hotlinesorry it is gwtw
  • pierre bressy on Ray Milland Movieshi i just seen few films of Ray Milland but he was very great in DIAL and everybody was against him because the part was so dark; it was the same in LOVE STORY he was not sympathic at all as a dad i was young at that time and i hate him in that part; And i hnow he did not like Dietrich in the Golden Earrings a smash hit of 1947 but i did not see the film so ? i think i see 5 or may be 6 i am very far from you but my favorite...
  • pierre bressy on Request HotlineHELLO BRUCE I Dont know if it is a good idea but may i suggest Miss Laura Hope Crews of course to day maybe she is in the shadow but in the main time she got an eternal part in GITW and she plaid always funny and excentric part; she plaid with DIETRICH and GARBO and she was a very great second part top billing; if i look the list i think for Broderick Crawford too; THANK YOU for all the labour you do for us have a nice day pierre
  • Søren on Judd Nelson MoviesHi Bruce I was a huge fan of Judd Nelson as well. "Breakfast Club" will always be a favorite of mine but everybody should check out "From the Hip" & "Blue City" - Brings back good memories... Judd Nelson was probably the only one I really liked from the original "brat pack"
  • Dan on Judd Nelson MoviesNever a fan of him either, matter of fact never cared for any of the brat pack actors. The one that drives me up the wall the most is Matthew Broderick. I've seen him in The Odd Couple on stage and another show about a party, both with Nathan Lane. The party had a couple of long speeches he had to make which while I'll admit he has a great memory for lines, he has as much personality as a dead fish. Nathan Lane has more talent in his pinkie finger than Matt. Any movie with him drops a notch...
  • Cogerson on James Garner MoviesHey Phil....this page has now been updated.
  • Cogerson on CommentsHey Phil 1. Thanks for the nice words about out page. 2. These two links will explain what is going on with the James Garner page. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/2016/12/december-26th-just-realized-made-another-mistake/ and http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/sorry-i-was-so-wrong/ 3. So you will see a different table when you return...as I am about to update it. 4. This does not effect Hour Of The Gun.....the source used on Wiki....says it comes from a book and not Variety...so many of Garner's movies increased but not that one...as I already had the gross of that movie a little over two million. 5. Thanks for the headsup on my mistake on the Garner...
  • Steve Lensman on Judd Nelson MoviesThis must have been a real labor of love for you Bruce, since you apparently had a 'man crush' on Judd in your teens, or should that be 'boy crush'? [cue Bruce blushing] Did you have posters of him on your walls? I confess to having a poster of Bruce Lee on my walls, next to a big poster of Christopher Lee as Dracua... I was an odd child. :) Way back in the 80s I wasn't a Judd Nelson fan and to be fair none of the other brat-packers you've listed in the trivia box were favorites either, but...
  • phil simmons on CommentsCongratulations, your web site contains a wealth of information and an interesting way to rate movies. I have a number of comments/suggestions that I would like to send later. But for now, I was reviewing the box office information for a number of my favourite stars (Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, Steve McQueen, James Garner etc..) and found some possible inconsistencies in James Garner's page. I noticed as compared to last year, adjusted box office figures have generally been revised upward by 30% or more and I assume this is because of using more a more current dollar value. However, in...
  • Steve Lensman on Dev Patel MoviesThis must have taken ages to put together Bruce. :) And one of your youngest subjects so far? Wallace Beery is 105 years older than Dev. Beery was already dead when Patel's grandparents were born, probably. ;) After studying the chart for some time I'm pretty sure I've only seen 3 of the 8 films listed - Slumdog Millionaire, The Last Chappie and Airbender. It's been a few years since I last saw Slumdog but I liked it enough to buy it on DVD. Interesting trivia about the first males born in the 1990s to receive Oscar nominations. Good work...
  • SteinHOF on Judd Nelson MoviesGive the man credit. His role in The Breakfast Club is still well known 30 years later. How many non movie legends can make that claim. I laughed out loud about the chainsaw review of Blue City.
  • Craig on Judd Nelson MoviesThat should say rebels.
  • Craig on Judd Nelson MoviesJohn Bender is one of the greatest revels in movie history!
  • Helakoski on Judd Nelson MoviesFunny, I did not even know his name before reading this page. He has always been known as the "Breakfast Club" guy. He seems like a musical one hit wonder. After doing do well with my Dev Patel movie count, I return to my so low we won't tell totals.
  • Helakoski on Dev Patel MoviesNice. I feel I can compute in your tally count this time. I have seen 6 of these movies. The only ones I have not see are Lion and About Cherry. I want to see Lion, never heard of the second one. Good trivia. Nicely done.
  • Lupino on Greer Garson MoviesI always liked Greer Garson. But, unlike my usual "personal problem" of naming just one or two favorite movies of an actor, in Garson's case there really are 2 favs from her heyday and 2 from her later years that stand out for me. Those are Random Harvest and Pride and Prejudice/Strange Lady in Town and Sunrise at Campobello. I also like Goodbye, Mr. Chips very much, but to me that film belongs to Robert Donat. As with many classic actors/actresses, I have seen a lot of her movies (20) and I especially enjoyed Blossoms in the Dust and Mrs....
  • John on Greer Garson MoviesCogerson Greer Garson, despite looking striking in Technicolor with her red hair, did not make very many color movies at MGM. Her first appearance in color was in Blossoms in the Dust in 1941. Her second That Forsyth Woman in 1949. She made 3 color movies in the fifties and 4 in the sixties for a total of 9 color movies out of the total of 25 she made. Still, this is a higher percentage than her dramatic actress contemporaries like Davis, Crawford, and Stanwyck. One probably unfortunate color miss was The Ziegfeld Follies in 1945. Garson wanted to do...
  • John on Greer Garson MoviesCogerson I think Greer Garson is probably the most underrated today of the classic era female stars. Yes, she was a titan at the box office during the forties, and certainly she fell badly at the box office in the 1950's. Her third marriage to a Texas millionaire was a happy one, and she no longer seemed to be as career orientated as she settled into a happy retirement. But what is often missed is that she picked her spots and still got some fine roles, often on TV-- In 1956 she played Regina in a TV version of The...
  • SteinHOF on Kate Winslet MoviesI like her and think she is a very good actress but take away Titanic and her box office numbers are very underwhelming.
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Robert....well one day I hope to unlock the vault that houses Wayne's B movie career. The search continues.
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Glen....this is our 3rd most popular page on our website. The power of Duke. Lists are made to be argued with...so I am glad you do not agree with all of our rankings. I have spent years putting this page together...including traveling across the country a few times when I was granted access to some sources used years ago by movie companies. Thanks for the feeback.
  • Glen on John Wayne MoviesI agree to disagree on some of their rankings. But pretty damn good job Duke ! The Green Berets suffered from the public opinion of the Vietnam War I am sure.
  • Robert on John Wayne MoviesYou didn't say that. I just got a magazine called "Closer", Tribute Edition to John Wayne. All of his movies, they didn't worry about, what each made, they just have the list.
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Robert....our ranking system uses box office grosses.....and finding box office grosses on his B movies has turned out to be very hard. From 1939 to 1976 we have every movie he made with the exception of A Man Betrayed and Lady From Louisiana....both 1941. A recent visit to the USC archive has helped unlock 5 of his Warner Brothers movies from the 1930s....so hopefully we keep discovery box office grosses from that time period too.
  • Robert on John Wayne MoviesWhere is the rankings for his 60 movies. He made a total of 150 movies. And 10 extra short ones.
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Steve...yep...Ray holds off the Duke. There are still two movies from the early 1940s that I want to include...but even my most recently found sources do not help out. 107 Wayne movies owned has to be the most of any performer in your collection. I recently added Chisum to my collection....but I am still in the single digits. I love The Shootist....so I have no problem with it being in the Top 10.....True Grit is fun to watch...but not nearly as good as so many other westerns he made. Thanks for checking out this updated page. I have since...
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesThanks for the kind words, Thomas. Glad you like our John Wayne page.
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Lyle....thanks...I added in the worldwide box office grosses to the page....very kewl....greatly appreciate it.
  • Thomas on John Wayne MoviesGreat Page, Thank You for sharing
  • Steve Lensman on John Wayne Movies90 movies and still not as big as your recent Ray Milland page, wow! Looking at your first post, Wayne had made 170 movies, 88 before Stagecoach turned him into a major star, incredible career and so many westerns! According to my database I have 107 John Wayne movies on various formats in my film collection, more than any other actor. I don't think I've seen them all. 36 of them before he made Stagecoach. The top 10 critics chart has 8 of my favorite Wayne movies. I'm not so keen on True Grit and The Shootist. Looking at the...
  • Cogerson on John Wayne MoviesHey Lyle...thanks for these stats...I will add them to the database when I get home. That should get his worldwide grosses to almost 50% of the movies I have listed Scott Eyman is by far the best biographer when it comes to mentioning box office numbers....and even responds back if you ask him a question on Twitter. Thanks again for this information.
  • Cogerson on Tyrone Power MoviesHey John....great information on John Hay. With the exception of the cow and the Chicago fire .....it was all new to me. Sounds like his grandson saw the power of color movies well before so many others. Great comment....educational and entertaining.
  • Lyle on John Wayne MoviesHello Bruce. Here are some more worldwide rental figures I got from the same source. Chisum (1970), $9.6m. The Train Robbers (1973), $6.4m. Cahill, U.S. Marshal (1973), $6.2m. McQ (1974), $6.6m.
  • Cogerson on Keanu Reeves MoviesHey Barbara ....glad you like John Wick 2. Keanu is having great success with this character. Thanks for the mini-review.
  • Cogerson on Keanu Reeves MoviesThanks for the visit Tubu tubu.
  • Cogerson on Sorry…..I Was So Wrong!Hey Lupino...glad you checked this one out...I think it does a good job of explaining how a lot stuff was determined when we launched this site.
  • Cogerson on Katharine Hepburn MoviesHey Lupino...congrats on watching and finishing Morning Becomes Electra. Redgrave is outstanding in the movie while I was not as impressed with Rosalind Russell in this one. I like your What if game.....it makes the movie better than what it actually is. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your mini-review.
  • Cogerson on February 12th – Preview- Started Researching Ray MillandHey Flora....after some struggles his page is finally complete. I am so glad to be done. :)
  • Cogerson on February 12th – Preview- Started Researching Ray MillandMoved this comment to our brand new page....96 Ray Milland Movies Ranked. Plus my return comment is there.
  • Lyle on John Wayne MoviesHello Bruce. Here are some worldwide rental figures I got from "JOHN WAYNE, THE LIFE AND THE LEGEND" by Scott Eyman. Flying Leathernecks (1951) , $3.95m. The Quiet Man (1952), $5.8m. Legend of the Lost (1957), $3.6m. The Alamo (1960), $15,870,000. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), $7.0m Donovan's Reef (1963), $5.7m. The War Wagon (1967), $10.7m. The Green Berets (1968), $17,750,000.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Lupino....congrats on another tally contest win. His career got sure had lots of high and lows. His last 20 years of movies is one low budget never to be heard from again movie after another. So you liked Frogs?.....you are not alone as that one seems to have some fans. Seems Milland should have picked up at least one other Oscar nomination during his long career. I will have to check out some of the Milland movies you recommended. Thanks for checking out this massive page.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey SteinHOF.....yep if you stay working for almost 60 years you are going to wind up with a massive amount of movies on your resume. As for your question about one nomination one win.....it has me thinking. I know Heston, Brynner and Colin Firth would be in that club. But I imagine most winners have more than one win. Thanks for the visit and the comment.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Chris 1. I loved the Milland parachute story too. I imagine he told that story the rest of his life. 2, You are right most people think he is British....I know I did. 3. Interesting story about his Oscar winning night. 4. Dial M For Murder is in my Top 3 Milland movies too. He is so good in the movie you actually want him to get away with it. 5. I liked Premature Burial too. Good comment, thanks for sharing your Ray Milland thoughts.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesThanks Helakoski for checking out the "epic" page.....appreciate the visit and the comment.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Flora.....thanks for the return visit. I am shocked to see that I top you in a classic performer tally. Of the three you mentioned as favorites...they would be my three favorites as well. I just watched The Uninvited a few months ago and really enjoyed it. As for not seeing Love Story....not thinking you are missing much.....it was a huge hit...but has not aged well at all. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on Ray Milland...it is greatly appreciated. Tally count so far. Lupino 30 movies Steve 16 movies Cogerson 12 movies Flora 11 movies
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Steve....yep 96 freaking movies.....the most ever....though Samuel L. Jackson sits at 92....and I have a few of his movies to include so Mr. Glass will eventually take back that title....heck the way SLJ makes movies it will be by the end of the year. I agree.....there are lots of stats here....sadly very few worldwide grosses were found...I sure if Bob wants them...I will post those numbers as well....but I was so ready to be done with Mr. Milland. So your tally is 16....mine is....counting...12....not too impressive for either of us. Tally counts so far Lupino 30 movies Steve 16...
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Flora...this one took so much out of me....that I did not even bother to go to UMR a single time yesterday...thankfully it is now done. Actually I was looking at my Paramount Studio book....and with the Milland page done...we now have UMR pages on 18 of the 23 stars shown on the book....very pleased with the %....as I have tended to avoid Paramount stars when I can.....the missing 5? Adolphe Menjou, Maurice Chevalier, Clara Bow, Veronica Lake and Gloria Swanson...just in case you were wondering.
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Lyle...thanks for the nice words about this page. WoC (my wife) helped me with our Michael Caine many years ago....and after awhile....she said..."How many damn movies does this guy have?".....while....I was saying the same thing when I was doing this page...lol. WoC has a confidence rating in the box office numbers based on the source that was used....happy to say 84 of these movies have a very high confidence rating....with only 12 coming from less reliable sources like books and internet sources. That is a much higher percentage than I thought would happen. Thanks for the comment and the...
  • Cogerson on Ray Milland MoviesHey Dan.....good lists on Ray Milland. You originally posted this on my Milland post update....but I moved it here.....as this page will have a longer shelf life than that post....which pretty much disappears after a few days. So he went from the Top 200 to off the list..what a shame...I guess the same thing will be happening to Michael Caine as well. So I will enjoy Caine's Top 10 ranking for as long as possible. Aces High and The River's Edge are two movies I look long and hard for information....but came up empty handed. That is now twice for...
  • Lupino on Ray Milland MoviesAnother classic actor! Ray Milland had a long career, interesting for many reasons. In a career exceeding 50 years, he acted in many classics, often in starring, later in supporting parts. He tried his hand at directing with varying results, but I like his Panic in the year zero. Like many of his contemporaries, he wasn't spared grade B and later Z pictures. 100 plus films, only one Oscar nom- but a grand performance that one was! I have seen 30 of the above listed films, my fav Milland performance of course is Lost Weekend. But I do love a...
  • SteinHOF on Ray Milland MoviesWow this is a lot of movies. I guess if you work steadily for 50 years you are going to have a large movie resume. So one nomination and one win. I bet that does not happen too often. Especially when looking at Best Actor and Actress.
  • Chris on Ray Milland MoviesHi The story about the parachute is amazing. He had another near miss while making Hotel Imperial. He went flying off his horse into a pile of glass, in hospital for over a week and leaving his arm permanently damaged. Before Catherine Zeta, Anthony Hopkins and Richard Burton, he was probably Wales most famous star. Although I imagine most Americans probably seen him as English. It was amazing that he came to Hollywood in the 30's with little acting experience but he was a great marksman and horse rider and of course good looks opened many doors. All his films...
  • Flora Breen Robison on Ray Milland MoviesI don't have a very high total. The highest ranked film I have seen is The Lost Weekend. The highest ranked film I have not seen is Love Story. I have seen 11 movies only - so I have lots of movies to watch. My favourites are Dial M for Murder, The Big Clock and The Uninvited.
  • Helakoski on Ray Milland MoviesThis is pretty epic. Good job.
  • Steve Lensman on Ray Milland MoviesWhoa 96 movies ranked and rated with all the stats is very impressive. I only managed 30 on my video. Good work indeed. Ray Milland was overdue for the UMR treatment and now all the facts and figures are in place, it should make certain stats-hungry regulars very happy. :) I've seen just 16 of the 96 films listed, a poor result. Favorites include - Dial M for Murder, Beau Geste, Reap the Wild Wind, The Big Clock, Premature Burial, The Man With X-Ray Eyes and Battlestar Galactica. I watched The Uninvited again a few weeks ago, a couple of...
  • Flora Breen Robison on Ray Milland MoviesWow! I'm glad to read you were able to include 96 movies on this page. It is 11:30pm here, so I will wait until tomorrow to give you my total of seen movies and a list of favourites.
  • Lyle on Ray Milland MoviesHello Bruce. Very good page on Ray Milland. It took a lot of research to do this page. I had gathered a lot of box office information on Milland's films and the ones I couldn't find you have found. Thank You. Great page.
  • Barbara on Keanu Reeves MoviesLoved John Wick 2..just got out of movie theater. Keanu is back and better than ever!
  • Dan on Ray Milland MoviesRay Milland is no longer on the Oracle of Bacon Top 1000 Center of the Hollywood Universe list. However he was #187 on the original list which may explain why he’s actually worked with a few on the current list and actually 2 of the top 10. People on the current list who appeared in a movie with him are; A Life of Her Own (1950) – 966 Kathleen Freeman Aces High (1976) – 8 Malcolm McDowell, 26 Christopher Plummer, 592 John Gielgud Blackout (1978) – 750 Robert Carradine California (1947) – 681 Anthony Quinn Embassy (1972) – 20 Max...
  • John on Tyrone Power MoviesCogerson I bit off topic, but info so interesting I thought I would share it. In tribute to Mary Tyler Moore I watched the 1988 made for TV movie Lincoln yesterday. (Aside--I highly recommend it) A major character was John Hay who was Lincoln's secretary during his administration. This caused me to read up a bit on Hay, whom I had only vague knowledge of. Hay would eventually become Secretary of State under McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. He was also, besides his diplomatic career, a journalist and writer (a ten volume biography of Lincoln which has largely shaped our perception...

  • Lupino on Sorry…..I Was So Wrong!Thanks for this interesting link ;-)
  • Lupino on Katharine Hepburn MoviesHey Bruce, watched Mourning over the weekend...greek tragedy made in Hollywood. Talk about unhappy people, talk about dysfunctional families, talk about miscasting...Although I think the film was "watchable" it made me play the What if game constantly during the first 2 hours. What if Garbo would have been willing to play the mother? What if they'd asked Dietrich after Garbo denied? What if they trusted Darnell, who was the right age for Lavinia with the part- or Fontaine, who in '47 looked the part much more than Russel did? As it is, both Russell and Paxinou were both way too...

  1. Wow that was quick! Thanks for considering my comment and updating the page. I guess this means the pages of the relevant co-stars of the updated films may need to be revised as well eventually, but…one step at a time 🙂 I see what you mean about the Hour of the Gun. So it did bombed badly at the box office. Not surprising given its lack of high dramatic moments, though it was a credible, revisionist Wyatt Earp story with strong performances from Garner and Jason Robards. A bit surprised at the low rating of Skin Game. I think it was one of Garner’s best films and it usually has very good ratings.

  2. Congratulations, your web site contains a wealth of information and an interesting way to rate movies. I have a number of comments/suggestions that I would like to send later. But for now, I was reviewing the box office information for a number of my favourite stars (Burt Lancaster, Gregory Peck, Steve McQueen, James Garner etc..) and found some possible inconsistencies in James Garner’s page. I noticed as compared to last year, adjusted box office figures have generally been revised upward by 30% or more and I assume this is because of using more a more current dollar value. However, in Garner’s page, a number of box office figures were increased by only about 5%. Based on a review of what has been done for other films across a number of stars, I estimated that The Americanization of Emily, 36 Hours, The Art of Love, Boys’ Night Out, Duel at Diablo and Support Your Local Sheriff may have been wrongly adjusted. Also, while I do not have access to the Variety numbers, I note that Wikipedia indicates BO rentals of $3.5M for the Wheelers Dealers and $2M for Hour of the Gun, which adjusted should result in about $80-100M for the former (instead of $45.7) and $30-40M ($14.4M) for the latter?

    1. Hey Phil
      1. Thanks for the nice words about out page.
      2. These two links will explain what is going on with the James Garner page. http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/2016/12/december-26th-just-realized-made-another-mistake/ and http://www.ultimatemovierankings.com/sorry-i-was-so-wrong/
      3. So you will see a different table when you return…as I am about to update it.
      4. This does not effect Hour Of The Gun…..the source used on Wiki….says it comes from a book and not Variety…so many of Garner’s movies increased but not that one…as I already had the gross of that movie a little over two million.
      5. Thanks for the headsup on my mistake on the Garner page.
