Top100 2011 Nominations Thread (Closed)

Recommended Posts

Some of your suggestions are already included in Post #2 of this thread. But they're good ones!

Oops! Sorry--it's a long forum, and I didn't realize Post #2 had been updated. Previous post has now been suitably edited.

Ah, I didn't catch this before you edited. Have all of them been seconded? Just wanted to make sure I didn't miss a second.

Second. FWIW, are we going with the original version or the "restored" one that surfaced this year?

I hope Ron Reed won't mind if I post some of his 2010 nominations here. Haven't heard from him for a while, and I wouldn't want them to be overlooked (and presume he wouldn't either):

Longford (HBO, 2006)

I re-posted the three Whit Stillman titles by mistake. They've all been seconded.

So far, no second for The Notorious Bettie Page. I realize it's controversial nomination.

Just so you know, Stef, I can never see the word "ratcatcher" without hearing Danny Kaye roll his R's the way he does at 2:55 in the clip below (from one of my official top ten movies of all time, The Court Jester):

(Footnote: That's Basil "Sherlock Holmes" Rathbone as the villain, Angela "Murder She Wrote" Lansbury as the princess, and Glynis "mother of the kids in Mary Poppins" Johns as the girlfriend. I don't know who plays the witch.)
