The countdown will start proper after Deal or No Deal it will be in the format we know and love from #60 to #1 and up to that point it won't be quite as fleshed out.

In order to make the poll work I had to include only those with 2 or more enteries and a bonus of 20 points for every vote after the second was added just make sure that two high votes alone didn't land a film in the top 50.

To start then, here are the single vote films that were included in a top ten.

One #10 vote
Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman (jmmrsn)
Mad Love (TerryKath'sBrain)
Napoleon (RocketMan)
Scarlett Street (FallingandLaughing)

One #9 Vote
Dragonwyck (TerryKath'sBrain)

One #8 Vote
Phantom of the Opera [1943] (TerryKath'sBrain)
Oliver Twist (Without Opinion)
Little Foxes, The (Velocity)

One #7 Vote
House of the Seven Gables (TerryKath'sBrain)
A Letter to Three Wives (The Good Dr. Bill)

One #6 Vote
Lost Horizon, The (GhostTownofMyBrain)
Gold Rush, The (Agrimorfee)
A Midsummer Night's Dream (Velocity)

No, they didn't. It wasn't worth wasting all those points when trying to spread them across 100 when I thought most lists weren't going to hit 50 (and they didn't.) Different story for the rest though. 150 or 200 may be viable.

Kind of surprised these 2 movies were rated so low. On second thought Robin Hood doesn't surprise me but Dracula does a bit. I assume more people voted for Nosferatu and some for the Spanish version.

I'm disheartened that we don't have pretty and/or clever pictures or quotes and indie rock references as intros...but perhaps in a list such as this, that would be asking too much of our distinguished vote tabulator and MC. Lookin' good irregardless. Carry on. B)

Much better than Adam Sandler's crappy version. At least Wynona, Steve B. & John T. were in it.
