Top Grossing Movies of 1955

James Dean in 1955’s Rebel Without A Cause

This movie page looks at The Top Grossing Movies of 1955.   Currently when you type in the search words….”Top Grossing Movies of 1955″ you do not get much information.   So in an effort to get more information out there…we have decided to unlock our 1955 movie database vault and share the information we have collected over the years.

To make this list a movie had to be made in 1955 (as listed on IMDB.com).  Obviously many movies made in 1954 earned box office dollars in 1955.  On the other side many movies made in 1955 made money in 1956 and later.  This page will looks at 154 Top Grossing Movies of 1955.  The movies are listed in a massive table that shows who starred in the movie, had much the movie grossed when it was released and how that gross means in today’s money.

Obviously this is not all of the 1955 movies…..but since our website is dynamic, ever time we add a 1955 movie….it will automatically be added to this page.

  1. Hi,

    just thought I had to check what’s going on in Cogerson world, and again I find so many new entries I’d love to leave my 2 cents at…
    About this one: I’ve seen 75 movies (but non recently, as there hardly is any time to watch a movie!)
    Favorites include Oklahoma!, The Rose Tattoo, East of Eden,Jennifer Jones in Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing and Good Morning, Miss Dove, All That Heaven Allows, Not as a Stranger, The Desperate Hours, This Island Earth, Tarantula (both are childhood favs), over the top Joan Crawford in Queen Bee, Jean Simmons in the british Footsteps in the Fog and the only film directed by Charles Laughton, The Night of the Hunter- one of my alltime favorite movies.
    Sad to see Maureen O’Hara (minus Ty Power) and especially Claudette Colbert performing so weakly at the box office, but at least Maureen would soon return to former Glory with Parent Trap, while Colbert would end her illustrious movie career as the mother of Troy Donahue very shortly…maybe a better decision than joining the AC Lyle bandwagon. She returned to the stage and made a well received TV movie in the years to come.
    Although I am a big fan of MM and Hitchcock, there ’55 outings are pretty low on my personal list of favorite movies. As always, I enjoyed this yearly overview on classic movies. Thanks for all your efforts…and I will try to honour those with more frequent comments ;O)

    1. Hey Lupino
      1. I would say we average about 3 new pages a week….so if you were away 2 weeks….then we probably have 6 new pages. We keep busy.,,,lol.
      2. 75 is pretty impressive….thanks for the tally count.
      3. Not as a Stranger has always fascinated me , even though I have never seen it….but a cast of Marvin, Mitchum and Sinatra as doctors ? Good to see you like it.
      4. I have also not seen This Island Earth, but based on some of the stellar comments on this page about that movie it seems like one I should watch.
      5. O’Hara had some gas left in the tank, can’t say the same thing about Colbert.
      6. I like To Catch A Thief but is my least favorite Hitch/Grant movie.
      Good to hear from you again.

      1. Hi Bruce,

        this time I’ve only been away for one week- but before it’s been two…A few weeks ago I rewatched my DVD of Not as a Stranger, and it held up pretty well! My print of Texas Lady even spelled Colberts name wrong in the title-it read “Claudette Colber”- not sure if this was the way the movie opened in cinemas back in the day, but I’m afraid it was more likely than not….quite an insult to a true movie legend whose heyday was less than a decade away. To catch a Thief is not a bad movie, neither are The Troubly with Harry or The Seven Year Itch…but compared to other Hitch or Monroe movies I found them some of their least interesting- for my taste, that is. By the way, I do miss my friend Pierre here, always enjoyed talking european movies with him!

        1. Hey Lupino…..well….just remember….we are open 24 hours a day….7 days a week…..365 days a year…..so whenever you find time….works with our schedule….lol. Good to know about Not As A Stranger….I have never seen a VHS, Laserdisc, DVD or Blu-Ray of that movie….but one day I will finally see it. Now that is no respect for Claudette Cobert. I understand your point about Hitch and Marilyn’s movies. As for Pierre….he like you has taken a break for a little while…..but I have a feeling he will be making another appearance soon. Thanks for the additional information.

  2. Hi Mr. Cogerson,

    Here is another film released in December 18, 1954.
    “Sign Of the Pagan” starring Jeff Chandler.
    IMDB says there were 2,500,000 rentals.

    Thx

    Mike

  3. I’ve seen 53 of the 152 films listed, probably more but that’s how many I know for sure. I have 84 films from 1955 in my movie collection, some not included here. I haven’t watched them all.

    Favorites include – Conquest of Space, This Island Earth, It Came from Beneath the Sea, Revenge of the Creature (not on the chart), Tarantula, The Quatermass Experiment (not charted), Bad Day at Black Rock, It’s Always Fair Weather, Lady and the Tramp, Mister Roberts, The Trouble With Harry and To Catch a Thief.

    There are plenty of western favorites here too including – The Tall Men, Tall Man Riding, The Man from Laramie, The Far Country and Man Without a Star.

    Top rated flicks I haven’t seen – Rififi, Marty, All That Heaven Allows and Summertime.

    Whoa! I didn’t expect Battle Cry to be that successful, nearly caught up with Mister Roberts at the box office.

    Interesting seeing the adjusted grosses of some of my sci-fi favorites – $80m for This Island Earth is not bad considering it had no big names attached. That’s about as much as Blade Runner 2049 managed this year at the US box office and that cost a lot more to produce.

    Another epic movie year page Bruce, keep em coming. Vote Up!

      1. BRUCE/STEVE 1 BRUCE I see you didn’t if I may use an old betting analogy “put your money where Joel’s mouth was”. Miss Grahame was such a “hot property” that you didn’t list her among the stars of Not as a Stranger, The Cobweb OR Oklahoma – and I’m sure that you didn’t forget Lana Turner was in 1952 Bad and the Beautiful in the way you say you overlooked Gloria. To again paraphrase Barbara Hershey’s statement to Hackman in Best Shot/Hoosiers “Well, I guess hot properties come very cheap these days.”

        2 Seriously though you produced excellent work in giving us this 1955 annual review so hard on the heels of the 1954 one. We’re nearly there as regards the 50s! and meanwhile you’ve given me much food for thought with the 1955 one and a lot to do in transcribing a host of your figures into my own database. Many thanks for your efforts.

        3 STEVE. Even the mention of one old movie can evoke many nostalgic memories. I vividly recall going to the Gaumont cinema in Belfast one rainy Monday night in 1955 to see This Island Earth. It was on the 2nd half of a double bill with my Joan’s Female on the Beach co-starring Big Jeff. I enjoyed This Island Earth but for me my Joan was still the Queen Bee of that double bill and indeed I see her film of that name is also listed in the table above. The WH is nothing if not thorough.

        4 That double bill though illustrates a point I’ve made before. Preferences for stars probably vary from one place to the next and certainly in Belfast Jeff Chandler was one the top favourites in the 1950s and whatever the official position or the situation elsewhere Jeff’s films and name usually topped bills over here. As said Female on the Beach was top of the bill when I saw it and yet Bruce’s table shows that in the US it made less than half the take of This Island Earth –$36 million to $80 respectively. Jeff co-wrote and personally sang the title song for Foxfire with Jane Russell and his rendition had all the ladies over here swooning! Of course “Mr Thorough” also lists Foxfire in his table and you could now get Jeff singing the song on U Tube .

        1. Hey Bob
          1. As you know…I generally list co-stars that have UMR pages….and it most of your examples….there are stars with links. So far…Gloria is UMR less. Of course if I only listed the co-stars by legends…Gloria would have been first with all of the movies.
          2. Glad you like this new yearly report…..which as you can see in Mike’s comment….can be even better….as we add in more movies.
          3. Interesting story about The Island Earth and Female on the Beach….double features are not something that were still around in my youth….but it sounds like you got the pleasure of seeing many movies like that.
          4. Wow…..never realized Chandler was so big over there….Chandler like Gloria is UMR less…..sounds like an epidemic…lol.
          5. I imagine some studio executive had the job of matching titles for double bills…..I imagine different countries got different matches. Makes you wonder.
          Good stuff.

          1. HI BRUCE

            1 At the risk of sounding like a broken record I will repeat that one of the great values of this site is that it enables me to put at last films that I saw years ago in their proper box office perspective. Thus I am regularly realising that movies on double bills that I thought were top of the heap some 60 years ago weren’t always as popular elsewhere as the second feature.

            2 Oh if only Steve could realise what a magnificent tool reliable comprehensive stats like yours are! He is excellent at measuring the artistic quality of movies and has an impeccable eye for fine posters and stills but he will never be able to put movies in their proper commercial perspective until he starts building up an overview of stats.

            3 By the way I did realise that Gloria does not have a Cogerson link but regardless of what Joel says that in itself speaks volumes to me after some 6 years of your opening for business. Conversely the Hirschhorn-despised Mumbles and Duke had pages on your site when I first came across it in its early days.

            4 I therefore like to think that in your heart of hearts you like I know that Gloria doesn’t deserve too much credit for the massive grosses of films like Not as a Stranger, Oklahoma and Greatest Show on Earth though I would concede that Myrna does have a reasonable claim claim to a respectable measure of the ones you’ve credited to her.

            4 As I’ve said Archie Leach was actually the first page that I spotted – accidentally – and i thought it was just an isolated presentation and didn’t realise the “pot of gold” that lay behind it. Imagine my delight when I discovered that many of my other idols like again Mumbles and Duke also had pages at that time. It was like Moses actually being admitted to the Promised Land

        2. Dan, Bob, Bruce, This Island Earth is one of my favorite sci-fi movies of the 1950s, I would group it with Forbidden Planet, Day the Earth Stood Still and Howard Hawks The Thing as all time favorites of that period of American cold war paranioia “reds under the bed” and all that stuff.

          I envy Bob watching it on the big screen when it was still brand new. I bought it on Super 8 way back in the 70s, just a 16min digest, later I managed to tape the whole movie on video thanks to the BBC. Thank Christ for VHS, Super 8 was far too expensive and at least I could keep the entire movie. 🙂

          1. HI STEVE

            1 I saw and enjoyed all the sci fi films that you have listed but I think that my fave movie of the genre was the 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers which also film historians regard as a cold war propaganda film with the aliens who were taking over the bodies of earthlings designed to conjure up in the minds of audiences parallels with the designs of “The Reds”

            2 Indeed in those days Red was often worked into the titles of movies to remind people of the Russians – for example the 1952 film Red Planet Mars and Laddie’s 1951 Red Mountain which was meant to convey a place of evil such as Russia.

            3 My own view is that whatever one thinks of the rights and wrongs of the cold or other direct military wars the propaganda machine often shot itself in the foot by drawing up unrealistic and at times farcical. analogies on the screen.

            4 For example if my memory is correct The Duke’s Green Berets is a case in point. In it David Janssen plays a cynical War Correspondent who doesn’t believe in the American cause in Nam so Wayne invites him out to see for himself. Of course when Janssen arrives the Cong carry out an attack which kills people and Janssen tells the Duke that he Jannsen is now won over to the American cause.

            5 To me that kind of conversion is incredulous. I mean regardless of the rights and wrongs of the war did Jannsen’s character think the it was wrong IN ITSELF for the Cong to attack their enemy in war? In wars both sides do that and inflict casualties.

    1. Hey Steve
      1. Tally count…Dan 97, Steve 53, me 33 and Laurent 26.
      2. I am sure as time passes my totals will continue to increase…..and I will pick up many of those 31 movies in your collection that are not in my table.
      3. Not surprised the two Hitchcock movies made your favorites list….even more not surprised that some many science fiction movies got a Lensman mention.
      4. You got me confused about The Far Country. Do you mean The Far Horizons? Your boy Chuck was in Far Horizons….so I can see you liking that one…..but The Far Country…..maybe you have it mixed up with a good Heston movie…The Big Country. Heston was pretty busy in 1955.
      5. Of the ones you missed…..Summertime is a wonderful tourist look at how Venice looked int he 1950s….but the movie is dreadfully dull.
      6. Thanks for the vote up and the feedback.

      1. Bruce, I had The Far Country listed as a 1955 film in my datafiles, it did premiere in New York and Los Angeles in 1955, so one of the books or websites I looked at years ago must have listed it as a 1955 film. I haven’t seen The Far Horizons.

        1. Hey Steve…I understand now….I went forward in time in my search for The Far Country…versus going back in time to fine the Stewart The Far Country…The Far Country, The Big Country and The Far Horizons…put them all together and you have the epic movie..The Big Country in The Far Horizons….now that is a movie I would want to see….what a cast…Peck, Heston, MacMurray, Stewart, Simmons, Reed and Baker….not to mention support work from Supporting Actor legends…Brennan, Ives and Bickford.

          Shocked that you have not seen The Far Horizons….but then again….I did not really enjoy that movie. Good feedback.

          1. HI BRUCE 1 The Far Country along with Bend of the River, Winchester 73, Naked Spur and The Man from Laramie comprise a great group of westerns that Jimmy made in the early 1950s. They are what drew me to Stewart and he became my No 3 idol ever after with Widmark and Peck being No 1 and No 2 respectively.

            2 Some historians reckon that the embittered, selfish characters that Stewart played in Far Country and Naked Spur were maybe the first anti-heroes though as in those days they couldn’t take that persona too far Jimmy redeems himself in the end and “gets the girl”

            3 John McIntyre almost steals Far Country as a Judge Roy Bean figure who has appointed himself the Town Leader and always claims to speak for “The People” and whom Jimmy always respectfully calls Mr Gannon even when the two are out to kill each other.

            4 McIntureHe is just about to hang some poor unfortunate when when Stewart’s cows run through the town and wreck the gallows and when “The People” are about to arrest Jimmy a river boat captain runs up and says he’s “taking” Stewart because he’s wanted elsewhere for murder., McIntyre snarls “You’re taking no one! He’s wanted here for busting up a hanging.”

            5 McIntyre then confiscates Jimmy’s cattle as punishment and sets him free and Stewart asks him “OK if we keep our horses?” to which McIntyre replies “The People ain’t interested in horses!” Later when Stewart is a thorn in McIntyre’s side John say to Ruth Roman “I should’ve hanged that man when I had the chance.”

            6 I vividly remember queuing for Far Country one cold winter’s nigh at the Belfast Imperial and for Bend of the River one lovely summer’s evening at our Picturedrome..Back then I thought that cinemas like those were set in stone for all time but both are now long gone. What the writer Sir Philip Gibbs called The Spoils of Time Jimmy’s sadly gone too of course but I suppose it’s some comfort that I’m still here!

    2. Hey Steve….the fact that Blade Runner 2049 was not a big box office hit….seems to be some type of mystery…….seems nobody is remembering that Blade Runner was a huge flop…..and it was made when Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford were on fire. So making a sequel to a movie that was a flop was not a good decision. Don’t get me wrong….I really liked the new movie….so just saying to the mass public…the Blade Runner storyline is no Harry Potter, Star Wars or Marvel movie.

  4. Up slightly in 1955 here are the 97 films plus 1 serial I have seen between December 1992 and December 2006. Key is film, studio, stars if I listed back then, date watched and source (tape, DVD or TV channel).

    1. Hey Dan….97…pretty darn impressive….looking at your list….most of them are on the page. As always….interesting to read….some of these movies I have never even heard of…Second Greatest Sex? was that the second to The Greatest Sex?….lol. Lots of science fiction movies….I am sure that makes Steve happy. Good feedback as always.

  5. Hello Bruce,

    153 movies is impressive. I’ve seen only 26. My favorites are Moonfleet, Man Without Star, Sea chase, Bad Day At Bloack Rock, Rififi (one of the best gangster movies of the decade. the burglary scene is remarkable, one of the best of all times) and Kiss Me Deadly.

    In France, Rififi and Diabolique were big success of course, but the two James Dean’s movies and To Catch a Thief were biggest (Grace Kelly was very popular).

    1. Hey Laurent
      1. 153…and I did not check my sources….this is just the ones that are 100% completed. But the 153 is now probably the biggest 1953 source out there.
      2. I have seen 33 to your 26….so we are very very close.
      3. Bad Day At Black Rock and Kiss Me Deadly would join Mister Roberts, How To Catch A Thief and Marty as my favorites.
      4. Thanks for the breakdown from France’s eyes.
