OK here goes. In this thread feel free to suggest and discuss the best films released before the start of the 1950's. This is pretty much going to be a 1940's and 1950's poll but if you want o vote for Un Chien Andalou, Battleship Potemkin and Grand Hotel this is the place.

I imagine that the majority of us can't say we've seen 100 from this period so the limit will be 50 films with points allocated as follows.

1. 500
2. 350
3. 250
4. 200
5. 180
6. 160
7. 140
8. 120
9. 100
10. 80
11. 65
12. 60
13. 55
14. 50
15. 45
16. 40
17. 38
18. 36
19. 34
20. 32
21. 30
22. 29
23. 28
24. 27
25. 26
26. 25

etc

44. 11
45. 10
46-50. 5

I hope this will put an emphasis on ordering the higher end of the list and won't penalise those who submit smaller lists or give a bias to either the films we've all seen or high ranking films on a few lists.

The deadline for votes is 16th March at the moment and the list will be counted down before the 20th. Again don't expect a list with enteries as long as displayed on previous votes on here. The final countdown for every set will be 100 but the full list of multiple votes will be made available.

Best places to start...

I hate the metric system.

:D Yeah fixed but the idea of harshly smiting you #8 films was quite appealing

OK, the #1 choices will all be awarded a gross of cubits.

March 10th i'm afraid. Either that or the start of April. I was guessing that the former would be the preference, please say if it's not.

Unless there are at least a few people like me who would try to see some undiscovered oldies before the deadline, then the sooner the better. I'd always go with the later deadline.

Go with the earlier deadline. Most people here have had at least 20 years to catch these movies. Then we can move on to better eras.

Yeah it has to fit round my plans so it's one or the other I figured that pushing 6 weeks is too long for the poll that will, I'm sure, get the least attention.

There's 10 days grace and I won't post the results until the Sausage is done. Otherwise I can't do it untill April. Just thought we could get going on the suggestions.

(in fact I wouldn't have started this today if I had seen that you had started.)

Yeah I'm pretty sure I could name 100 classic films but I havn't seen them all. I'm sure most of us have seen 30 odd but they won't all be the same set so I hope that is going to make the poll really interesting.
