My 10 Best

On TCM’s 31 Days of Oscar website, there is a feature where you can look through a list of every movie being played this month, create a list of your 10 favorite movies, and you can see the top 10 movies being chosen overall.  These are the 10 I chose.  Which movies make your top 10?

10.  Gold Diggers of 1933

9.  Notorious (1946)

8.  Ninotchka (1939)

7.  The Crowd (1928)

King Vidor discussing The Crowd

6.  Singin’ in the Rain (1952)

5.  8 1/2  (1963)

4.  Some Like it Hot (1959)

3.  The Graduate (1967)

2.  Sunset Blvd. (1950)

1.  Casablanca (1942)

Honorable mention to The Band Wagon (1953).  I think The Band Wagon and Singin’ in the Rain are equally amazing and I love Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly equally, but I had to pick one or the other for the sake of this list.  But since I always like an excuse to watch Cyd Charisse dance, I’ll just go ahead and mention it here.



  1. FANTASTIC LIST!!! Loved to see Ninotchka on there! But, of course it doesnt get much better then Casablanca!!!
