  • Greg on Montgomery Clift MoviesJust love me some Montgomery Clift and out of the seventeen films listed on this page., I have seen twelve of them. Monty TRULY DESERVED all the Oscar nominations he got because THE SEARCH, A PLACE IN THE SUN, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY, and JUDGEMENT AT NUREMBERG are all truly great movies and he was BRILLIANT in all of them. Personally, I think Mr. Clift should have WON THE OSCAR for FROM HERE TO ETERNITY. A PLACE IN THE SUN is easily the best of three films that Monty made with Liz Taylor as his co-star as far as i'm...
  • Greg on John Garfield MoviesHands Down, John Garfield was the most VASTLY UNDERRATED Leading Man from Hollywood's Classic Era in my humble opinion and out of the thirty one movies listed on this page, I have seen seventeen of them. Again in my opinion. John Garfield- like Rosalind Russell and Montgomery Clift -was one of the few actors who TRULY DESERVED all the Oscar nominations he got during the course of his career and then some. Not only did he deserve his Supporting Actor nomination in 1938 for FOUR DAUGHTERS but should of gotten another Supporting Actor nomination in 1943 for his work in...
  • In The Shadows on Teachers’ Favorite Teaching MoviesInteresting. Even though I do not comment often, I am multi-time daily connoisseur of this website. So while on your Site Index and looking for your Star Trek page, I happened to notice this page. Then when I went back to it, there were more movies listed. So I have concluded you are working on this one. Hopefully my accessing the page did not cause you any extra work. Keep the good work, looks like a another winner.
  • BOB on Best Christmas Movies Statistically SpeakingHI BRUCE 1. White Christmas is not only my favourite Xmas movie but is in contention with the likes of Shane as my all-time favorite movie of any kind even though Bing although likeable is not one of my top idols. Certainly I’ve probably watched White Christmas more than any other movie because of course there is an annual anniversary that dictates it be taken down from the shelf at viewed at least once a year! 2. However other people rarely place it on top of their lists of favourite Christmas films, in my experience most mentions in that respect...
  • Cogerson on James Franco MoviesHey Bob.....Shia's time in the sun....seems to be short lived....glad Franco thinks so highly on Shia.....but currently the only movies Shia has that are worth mentioning.....and it is only because they made so much money are the Transformer and Indy 4 movies. So I guess I am saying....Shia is just not good enough to be the next Brando. Maybe he will have a career rebound.....but currently I do not see that happening. As for the fact that Shia is rebelling against the industry....he might be...but unlike when Brando did it.......nobody is noticing the strange things Shia is doing. At first...
  • Cogerson on December 15th – Our Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – spoiler freeHey anonymous.....I actually did not like Return of the Jedi as much as Star Wars and Empire. I blame the fact that I got older. I saw the first one when I was 10....and it was amazing...by the time I saw Return of the Jedi....I was a jaded teenager who was only interested in getting a car....so the muppets really were bothersome. My top 3 are the first two and now this one....I wonder if time will be kind to the Last Jedi. When I wrote the review....I was on cloud nine about it....but now days later I am thinking...
  • Cogerson on December 15th – Our Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – spoiler freeHey Anonymous.....sadly....WoC...was not able to go. She is currently doing a training class in Washington DC.....and has left me alone for almost an entire week. But we will be going when she gets back....if she wants to go. She had actually not seen a Star Wars movie before BC (Before Cogerson)....but under my guidance she has actually seen the last three in theaters....lol.
  • Cogerson on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageThanks Taylor.....it is very frustrating....I guess I am going to have to break the WoC emergency case....lol.
  • Taylor on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageSorry. Sounds frustrating.
  • anonymous on December 15th – Our Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – spoiler freeyou mean best since Return of the Jedi? If your brought your wife it would have been a 4.8!
  • Anonymous on December 15th – Our Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – spoiler freeYou didnt say what WoC thought of it?
  • Cogerson on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageMan! Another page counter has stopped working.....this is beyond frustrating! Why is it so hard to find a device that counts how many times a page is viewed? Just does not make sense. Ok done complaining!
  • BOB on James Franco Movies1 STEVE Thanks for the feedback. Yes Omar nearly lost his Egyptian passport over his affair with Babs as she is of course Jewish. Ironically though he says he was not attracted to her initially and the attraction developed only as they filmed together. 2 Also your 7.38am post 13 Dec about James Franco refers.. The fact that Franco played Dean is interesting because similarities between Dean and the young Brando have often been observed and some movie buffs have opined recently that Franco would make a good Brando in any screen biography of the latter. 3 However Franco has...
  • Bern 1960 on 2017 MoviesHey, VERY VERY VERY interesting. I really liked the stats on earnings. LOTS AND LOTS OF MOVIES. Thanks for this WONDERFUL MOVIE SITE. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHi Bob. thanks for reviewing and rating my Omar Sharif video, appreciate the info, trivia and comment. Glad you liked the posters and stills. So naughty Omar had a dalliance with Babs eh, did not know this. He was a busy actor with over 80 movie credits listed at IMDB. I zeroed in on his English-Language output and narrowed it down to 23 movies. The Night of the Generals is an old favorite of mine too. A good cast and an interesting story though it wasn't much of a whodunit. Omar was miscast as a German officer and Peter O'Toole's...
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube Forummuchas gracias
  • Steve Lensman on December 15th – Our Review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi – spoiler freeGlad you liked it Bruce, thanks for the spoiler free review. I'm really looking forward to seeing it, but probably some time next week. Apparently Prince's William and Harry are in the film somewhere dressed as stormtroopers, Tom Hardy too.

  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube Forum1 STEVE Omar Sharif’s acting career began in Egyptian films in 1954 and it was not until Lawrence of Arabia in 1962 that he landed an English speaking role. After that he appeared in a string of mainstream English-speaking movies including Dr Zhivago [his personal biggest leading role] and two with Barbra Streisand, Funny Girl (1968) and its sequel Funny Lady (1975). After the latter his film career seemed to go into decline because I’ve either never heard of or have long since forgotten most of the films concerned. 2 The relative brevity of the profile does not impinge on...
  • Anonymous on John Wayne MoviesHello Steve; I know I am in the minority but I enjoy The Conqueror, in part because it doesn't take itself seriously (like other 'epics' of its era, such as The Silver Chalice, Demetrius and the Gladiators, The Big Fisherman, etc). No, it's not up there with my favorite John Wayne films but it is entertaining.
  • bob cox on Request HotlineHow great is john malkovich?
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Chris. 1. You must have been Paul Newman's good luck charm....you get born and he turns into a superstar....lol. 2. The Big Country is one of my favorite and westerns...and favorite films of all-time....so I am glad to see you mention that movie. 3. Gigi was huge back then....but like you wrote....others here are not huge fans of that one....I am not a huge musical fan....so it is a one and done movie for me....but glad you liked the movie. Caron is awesome in the movie. 4. Teacher's Pet is a fun movie.......Gable trying to do a Grant role.....is...

  • Chris Miller on Doris Day MoviesMidnight Lace! Haven't seen it in years and years Got to see it before I go!
  • Chris on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hi Wow, 1958 the year of my birth! A couple of films really stand out. Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the performances in it were so superb, especially the father and son scene near the end. The Big Country, brilliant cast, especially Burl Ives. Aunty Mame, probably Russell's best chance at getting an Oscar. Gigi, I know some people on the site don't like it but it was MGM'S last great musical. Some of the songs in it were fantastic. But it really marked the end of an era. I quite enjoyed South Pacific and Teacher's Pet. But you...

  • Brit on Jayne Mansfield MoviesI hate that I'm super late coming on this page, but thank you so much for doing it. Jayne's BO stats are somewhat surprising considering the fact that her career was pretty short-lived, but here are some things that stuck out to me: 1. Her overall total gross is fantastic. She may not be considered a box-office beast, but to join the $1 billion club with 19 films is pretty great. 2. Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?, which is her signature film, is only 7th when ranking her films by overall gross. Shocked by this considering this is the film...

  • Steve Lensman on James Franco Movies"In 2017, he has 17 acting credits, 20 producing credits, 5 directing credits and 3 writing credits." Whoa I didn't know Franco was so busy! Let's see I've seen 18 James Franco films from the 46 films listed. Favorites include - Spiderman 1-2-3, The Interview, This is the End, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Green Hornet, Spring Breakers and Sausage Party. He was good in 127 Hours but the film was hard to watch. I haven't seen his portrayal of James Dean. From the photos I saw he did resemble Dean a little bit, maybe it was...
  • Phil Simmons on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesThanks Bruce, I understand the list reflects the films in your database, and since so many successful movies are in fact in the database, usually I feel these annual lists are quite comprehensive. Still, it would make them even more so if all the Variety listed films were included, or at least those that grossed above a certain threshold. Though I realize it's easy to make suggestions when one does not have to put them into practice :)
  • Barney on Frank Sinatra MoviesFrancis Albert Sinatra was the Best of All Time
  • Pierre on Top Grossing Movies of 1958hello Bruce, i saw more than twenty films so like for 57 i stop to count. one of my fav are Viking, touch of evil, cat on a hot tin roof, and of course King creole i am not a fan of Vertigo, i saw it two times and i really prefer for instance Rear window with Stewart and Kelly or North by Nothwest with Cary Grant but he is hitchock film so;;; oh by the way, i see the poster of the Big Country with a lot of stars like Carrol Baker i think it is a good start...

  • Cogerson on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumKhannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!......here is Steve's You Tube video.
  • BOB on Frank Sinatra MoviesHI BRUCE 1 Apart from the Duke and Mumbles Sinatra is the artist about whom I have collected the most anecdotes and items of trivia down the years but I’ve mentioned most of them already on this site. However I was pouring over my notes and did come across a film historian’s interview with an actress who would not be named but said that in her experience Frankie despite his “hell-raiser” image*** was the “tenderest lover” whom she had ever dated. *** [MARTIN: You haven’t been yourself lately Frank. SINATRA Why not Dean? DINO You haven’t hit anybody all week!...
  • Laurent on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hello Bruce, I've seen 22 movies of this list. Little better than 1957. Vertigo, Vikings and Dracula are my favorites. In France, the Young Lions and Vikings were big success in France. They grossed respectively $1.88M and $1.47M, or in adjusted : $33.4M and $27.7M. They attracted more than thrre millions people in theatres. About that, I sent you an email this morning.
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Understood.
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Steve....got it.
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Phil....I think every year can produce an excellent Top 10. Which in this case.....you can get those 10 movies....I think a great year has 30 or 40 movies that are that highly rated.....1939 obviously is the first year to come to my mind. Newman exploded onto the scene in 1958....and he never looked back. Glad you mentioned The Blob.....that was one of the first classic movies that I watched as a kid.....so it brings back lots of fond memories. I think The Defiant Ones....is an excellent choice. In Love and War? I will have to go back and see...
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Flora.....52 for you.....57 for Steve.....132 for Dan....and 32 for me. I think our counts are more valid....as Steve and Dan are giving their complete 1958 totals. I am willing to bet that your total would be pretty close to Dan's total if you looked at a complete list of movies made in 1958. Steve is shocked that you have not seen The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad....lol. Once again I have seen 8 of your Top 10....with Torpedo Run and Some Came Running being my missing movies. I really liked The Law and Jake Wade...possible one of my favorite Widmark...
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Dan....132 movies watched for 1958.....that is almost 5 times my amount. Once again.....awesome to see your movie watching on lists like this.....thanks for posting the information.
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Steve 1. Thank for checking out the last 1950s page. 2. 57 movies?...I am at 32 movies.....so only 25 movies behind you....lol. 3. I was sure to include the trailer for The 7th Voyage of Sinbad....as well as The Big Country.....figured you would enjoy both of those. 4. 84 1958 movies in your collection.....pretty impressive...looking at the list....I have only one in my collection....The Vikings...and it is on loan from my parent's...but I have had it so long...I might as well say it is mine....lol. 5. As for South Pacific....Variety has it listed as the 9th biggest hit of...
  • Cogerson on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hey Bob. 1. Hey Bob....glad you found your early Christmas present....a couple of months ago when I was going in the other direction....1938, 1937, 1936....you asked for us to go the 1950s....well....they are now done. 2. Sadly this only represents about 30% of the movies released in 1958.....but it is the biggest list on the internet. 3. Big budget, modest budget and low budget all get mentioned...as long as they were in the database. 4. The only place you will find actual grosses...(at least educated actual grosses) is on these yearly reviews. Thanks for the kind words.
  • Phil Simmons on Top Grossing Movies of 1958I must admit 1958 does not do it for me as much as 1957. I mean the page is great, but I can only list Vertigo, The Defiant Ones and The Big Country among my favorite films, and I never saw the top grossing film, South Pacific. I recognize there were of course many other good films: Touch of Evil, the flop that became the classic, Separate Tables, Auntie Mame, Run Silent Run Deep, The Horror of Dracula, among others. It was a important year for Paul Newman, who became a major star with The Long Hot Summer and Cat...
  • Steve Lensman on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Sorry I Married a Monster from Outer Space is on Bruce's chart, I meant It! The Terror from Beyond Space.
  • Steve Lensman on Top Grossing Movies of 1958Hi Flora, to be honest with you I used my own 1958 chart alongside Bruce's chart to find the films I've seen and my movie chart has a few films that are not on his chart, e.g. The Hidden Fortress, The H Man, Revenge of Frankenstein and I Married a Monster from Outer Space. I did this with the 1957 chart too, so you've more likely seen more films than I from Bruce's charts.
  • bob cox on Top 200 Movie Stars Statistically SpeakingStill awed by this list. thinking about your baseball stat guru, i love to compare sports guys top 5 or 10 seasons. could you do this with movie stars? would your data base allow a cutoff of top 10 or 15 or 20 or 25 movies? you might even let the fan choose the cut off. then average and compare UMR, box office, review, Oscar . the power of computers, what fun for movie fans and UMR fans. yea Cogerson, yea WoC, yea Bill James.
  • Flora Breen Robison on Top Grossing Movies of 1958I have seen 52 movies, again a bit shy of Steve's total. The highest rated film I have seen is Gigi. The highest rated film I have not seen is The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. The lowest rated film I have seen is The Queen of Outer Space. My top ten 1958 movies are: Some Came Running The Big Country Touch of Evil Gigi Vertigo Run Silent, Run Deep Separate Tables Imitation General The Law and Jake Wade Torpedo Run
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumI should pick up the Columbo DVD box set, it's not expensive, worth watching again just for all the great guest stars on that show. I remember seeing Shatner in one of them. I didn't know he was so rich!
  • Dan on Top Grossing Movies of 1958These are the 132 1958 films I have seen between December 1992 when I hit film 8000 and December 2016. Gigi was seen before 1992.

  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI STEVE 1 Good additional background chat from you. 2 Yes the Trekkies as they're called have remained loyal to the franchise down the years in fiction as well as in real life. In the sitcom Frasier there is a character called Noel who is such a fan of the the Star Trek heroes that the courts have to issue him with a Restraining Order to keep him away from William Shatner. Probably such an Order would have to be served against Bruce today if Joel were still around! 3 Possibly Shatner has been commercially the most successful actor connected...
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHi Bob, thanks for the review, rating, info and trivia, mucho apreciado amigo (as Montalban might say in his native tongue). Glad you liked the posters and stills. I was a fan of Ricardo's primarily because of his iconic role as Khan Noonien Singh in the classic Star Trek episode Space Seed and the movie Star Trek II The Wrath of Khan. Easily Star Trek's best ever 'single' villain and there has been hundreds of episodes and 13 movies in the Trekverse so far. I also knew him from Fantasy Island. I was later surprised to discover that Ricardo had...
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Phil. Glad you like this year in movies as well as this page. I agree there are some amazing movies listed here. Paths of Glory is a classic....sad only film buffs seem aware of that movie. I just recently rewatched The Curse of Frankenstein....good movie....one of Cushing’s better roles. I will have to see about the other two movies....I admit when it comes to this page I did no further research.....just listed the movies already listed in my database. So maybe I will have some b.o. information on those movies. Thanks for the feedback.
  • Steve Lensman on Top Grossing Movies of 19581958. An important year for Hitchcock fans and Hammer Horror fans too. Vertigo was voted in first place in Sight & Sound's 2012 poll of the greatest films of all time, knocking Citizen Kane of it's pedestal. And the first in the Hammer Dracula series starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing was released, it stands as the highest rated movie from the Hammer studios. A great year for Ray Harryhausen fans too, The 7th Voyage of SInbad is one of the best loved movies from the celebrated special effects master. I've seen 57 films from 1958. Favorites include - Vertigo,...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI STEVE 1 I’ve mentioned that my very favourite B movie action heroes of the 1950s/early 1960s were the likes of Rory, Audie and John Payne. Languishing somewhere in the bottom half of my Top 20 B actorswas probably Ricardo. I remember him vividly from programmers like A Life in the Balance, Mystery Street, Sombrero, The Saracen Blade, Rage of the Buccaneers and most exceptionally from Queen of Babylon co-starring my Rhonda at her voluptuous best. Probably his most prestigious film of those times was Sayonara supporting Mr. Mumbles, a movie that did very well at the top of Bruce’s...
  • BOB on Top Grossing Movies of 19581 HI BRUCE Snap! As the saying goes as this is my response to the 1958 review. That Survey faithfully records (1) the big movies that were doing the rounds in 1958 like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, No Time for Sergeants, Sought Pacific and The Big Country (2) those films that it was probably anticipated or at least hoped might draw A movie type revenues but ended up with B movie levels of grosses such as the musical The Girl Most Likely and two from Jeff Chandler, Raw Wind in Eden and The Lady Takes a Flyer, though...
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Chris. Those are two awesome movies. 12 Angry Men is a Top 10 IMDb movie. While Paths of Glory is my favorite Kubrick movie. Happy belated Birthday to Kirk. His 100th birthday got lots of press....apparently 101st is not as impressive.....lol. I agree it is interesting that The Incredible Shrinking Man never got a reboot. But lots of other movies covered the subject. Thanks for checking out our 1957 page.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Dan 1. Once again your movie watching and movie tracking information is truly impressive. 2. Tons of many good movies on your list....plus some I have never heard of before. Thanks for sharing this information....a round of applause to you and your awesome tracking skills.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Flora 1. 57 falls a little short of Steve’s 60. You don’t see that too much when it comes to classic tally counts. 2. I have not seen all of Old Yeller either. 3. I have seen 8 if your Top 10. Only missing Designing Women and Don’t Go Near the Water. 4. Of the 8 I have seen....they are all great movies. Thanks for stopping by.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Bob 1. Well....since your comment .....the last 1950s page has been done....so Merry Christmas....lol. 2. Good background on your memories of Sayorna. 3. I will have to revisit Drango and correct the issue. 4. The last table should be correct now...as it should be the top box office stars of 1957. 5. Good stuff.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Pierre 1. Thanks for your count of 20.......life is indeed is going very fast. 2. Witness for the Prosecution....is a classic....what a performance by Dietrich. 3. I should probably switch out Leigh for Sternberg.....at the time I did not have a Leigh page. 4. Zero Hour is one of the first airplane disaster movies.....but High and the Mighty came a few years before that movie. 5. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this great year in movies.
  • Cogerson on Audrey Hepburn MoviesHey Sean. 1. I can easily see why you have liked Audrey Hepburn so much. 2. Good mini-reviews of Breakfast At Tiffany's and My Fair Lady.....those are classic scenes you mentioned. 3. My favorite Hepburn movies are Charade and How To Steal A Million.....both I watch on a regular basis. 4. You are so many others have been in love with her for years. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on her......good comment.
  • Cogerson on December 11th – Newest Page – 1958 Top Grossing MoviesThis now gives us a yearly review page from 1936 to 1959.....crazy weekend.....will catch up on comments very soon. 2 weeks to Christmas.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Steve 1. Thanks for the feedback. 2. 60 seen....that almost doubles my total of 35....and even tops Flora's total of 57....congrats...you rarely top Flora when it comes to classic pages like this one. 3. Lots of great movies listed in your favorites....my favorites would also include Paths of Glory, Gunfight At The OK Coral and Night of the Demon....with Witness for the Prosecution being up there as well. 4. Yep Kwai.....is a Top 10 movie in the entire database.....so it was not surprising to see it in first place. 5. Peyton Place....got a sequel....and then a television series...that series...
  • Cogerson on Ultimate Movie Rankings Home PageThank you Anonymous.....that makes us very very happy.
  • Cogerson on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHey Laurent. 1. Thanks for the tally count. 17....well I have seen....counting.....35. More than I thought it would be. 2. River Kwai is one of my dad's Top 5 movies.....it is probably time to re-visit that one. 3. Good to know that Rock Hudson's Farewell To Arms was a success in France. 4. As for Night of the Demon... got that from a book....not 100% sure which one....but I would guess one of the three Danny Peary Cult Movie books. Thanks for checking out this 1957 movie page.
  • Cogerson on Irene Dunne MoviesHey Lisa.....awesome comment. Love hearing how classic movies and actors/actresses from the Golden Era find their way into the hearts of other generations. She is very very funny in The Awful Truth. I can now picture your dad laughing at that scene. Her two Cary Grant comedies are my favorite Dunne movies....not a huge fan of Penny Serenade. I agree with your comment that she had an extraordinary life. Glad a Dunne fan found this page.
  • Lisa Brooks on Irene Dunne MoviesThanks for the fantastic information on my favorite actress of Hollywood's Golden Era, Miss Irene Dunne. I was first hipped to her by my dad when AMC premiered on cable TV in the 1980's. He had grown up watching her movies during her heyday of the 1930s and 1940s. The fact that she hails from our hometown of Louisville, KY is just icing on the cake! I remember my dad (a generally stoic fellow) laughing himself silly over Miss Dunne's party crashing scene in "The Awful Truth". I rediscovered this film in 2013 and began researching Miss Dunne's career. She...

  • Sean on Audrey Hepburn MoviesOf all of the movie star women that I have truly enjoyed, admired and respected in my 70 years on this earth, there was only ever one that I fell desperately in love with and always have been. I speak of course of Audrey Hepburn. Like Lupino (above) her most memorable moment was when she was sitting out on the fire escape with her guitar singing Moon River (Breakfast At Tiffany's) This has to be the most under-rated AH movie ever. Personally I have always placed it #2 only to My Fair Lady. The scene in that movie for me,...
  • Phil Simmons on 1957 Top Grossing Movies1957 must be one of my favorite movie years - so many great titles! Like Chris, my top picks are 12 Angry Men and Paths of Glory (banned in France until 1975), two films which were not hits at the box office, but became timeless classics. Close follow-ups are 3:10 to Yuma and Bridge on and the River Kwai. Other favorites: Sweet Smell of Success, Witness for the Prosecution, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Sayonara, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, The Curse of Frankenstein, A Hatful of Rain and The Enemy Below. Two less well-known films I am curious to have...
  • Chris on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHi For me the two best movies of the year was 12 Angry Men and Paths of Glory, one of the best movies I've ever seen. Incidentally, Kirk Douglas is 101 today. Funny Face and Silk Stockings weren't bad musicals but clearly the Glory Days of MGM musicals were over. Although Warner's Pajama Game is very good. Another favourite is The Incredible Shrinking Man. I'm surprised they've never made a remake. Old Yeller was every school boy's favourite, a must for anyone who loves dogs. Compared to some other years in the 50's I don't think '57 is quite as...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI STEVE 1 The musical version of Taming of Shrew was of course Kiss Me Kate starring Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel - sorry for the omission. I've quickly checked out the posters on IMDB and Wiki and they do indeed show Kathryn getting spanked by Keel. 2 Pickford and Fairbanks also made a dramatic version of the Bard's play in 1929. I wonder did little Mary get spanked in that one. It was the first sound production of the Bard's play. 3. Certainly the vindictive Chaplin would have loved to give a real life solid spanking to "Bank of...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHI STEVE 1 Yes I was pleased at Gunman’s Walk being your No 1 Tab Hunter film. The WH does well by it too ranking it No 8 for artistic merit on Heflin's Cogerson page and awarding it a 76% rating. 2 I’m sure that the woman with Tab in the Battle Cry still was the lovely Mona. Battle Cry is one of just a handful of movies over his whole career in which Van was the main, top-billed character and it was the only one of all his stand-alone vehicles to make mega bucks – adjusted domestic gross of...
  • Steve Lensman on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube ForumHi Bob, thanks for the review, rating, info, trivia, comment and quotes, much appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the pictorial aspects of the presentation. So you must have been happy to see Gunman's Walk top Tab's top 22 chart? As a western fan I wasn't going to let Polyester get to no.1 and in the end I didn't have to adjust the score, Gunman's Walk scored higher everywhere except for the Radio Times reviewer who gave Polyester a higher score. Not sure who the girl in the Battle Cry still is, I assume it is Mona Freeman. And that was Natalie...
  • BOB on Steve’s Top 10 Charts YouTube Forum1 STEVE Henry Wilson Tab Hunter’s movie agent specialised in promoting “pretty boys” like Tab and Robert Wagner. It may seem ironic therefore that Hunter’s own favourite role and indeed the one in which I most admired his performance was as the delinquent son of Van Heflin in the 1958 Gunman’s Walk where in the end Van had to shoot him dead in a duel. 2 Their exchanges in one of their earlier rows in the movie: VAN HEFLIN: “Son, in future you take your own horse to the stable and don’t ask one of the ranch hands to do...
  • Dan on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesThese are the 138 1957 movies that I have seen since I saw my number 8000 in December of 1992 through December of 2016. Ooh the lists will be updated next year any 57's seen in 2017. Classics like Bridge on the River Kwai and Jailhouse Rock were seen previous to 800. Key - film, studio, stars when I used to list (through 2013), date seen and source, whether DVD, tape or TV channel. You know I saw over 800 movies in revival theaters, all prior to 1991.

  • BOB on Joel Hirschhorn MoviesHELLO BABY 1 I hope that doesn’t sound like I’m trying to hit on you but I don’t know your real name and anyway I can’t be sure of your gender though the Million Dollar Baby in Clint Eastwood’s film of that name was of course a woman played by Hilary Swank. 2 Anyway I am very fond of quoting on this site Charles Bickford’s words to Charlton Heston in the Big Country when Bickford thinks that Heston is going to desert him in the range battle with Burl Ives and says “Well, I don’t mind. I’ve been on my...

  • BOB on 1957 Top Grossing Movies1 HI BRUCE Just one more to go for the 1950s and it’s beginning to look as if my private hope that the lot could be completed by Xmas might not be unrealistic so well done. For me of course it’s good to see Mr Mumbles doing so well in your charts with just one movie 2 One reason why Sayonara has always been of particular interest to me was that I attended the Northern Ireland premier of the film at the Ritz Belfast in early 1958 and Mr M’s leading lady in the movie, Miiko Taka, appeared personally on...
  • Pierre on Stories & Memories of the Tiger Movie Theater In Auburn, Alabamahello Bruce, very interresting to read and to learn the every day of a movie theater which saw so many people to come watch a film; in U S A you have so many and big theathers, and you have during the last decades lost so many which became stores or destroyed or abandonned like in detroit; but the movie theaters is the only the right place to watch a film not on TV or in a plane or in IPAD; very very good page and thank you for sharing bye Pierre

  • Laurent on 1957 Top Grossing MoviesHello Bruce, 17 ! It's the number pf movies of this list I've seen. Only 17.... I love River Kwai, Ok Corral, 3:10 for Yuma, Witness For Prosecution and Frankenstein. The last was not a success in France, unlike Ok Corral and of course River Kwai (one of the biggest of all-time in France). Only few films of this list were sucessful in France. Among them, Raintree Country and Farwell To Arms. Can you tell me where did you thind the box-office number of Night of The Demon, please ?

  1. Hi Steve

    Such incredible work.
    At one point I thought you had a ranking for actors showing where they place in film history. Do you still have it, and where? Thanks.
