Topp 10 fra 1943

  1. The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp. Deborah Kerr’s three roles are magnificent acting.
  2. The Ox-Bow Incident. A rare nihilistic western.
  3. Vredens dag. Dreyer had a way with women.
  4. Five Graves to Cairo. Beautifully photographed and an underrated Wilder gem.
  5. Red Hot Riding Hood. If you can’t do this thing a new way, Bud, I quit!
  6. Heaven Can Wait. Hilarious take on the afterlife.
  7. Sugata Sanshirô. Tenno’s first.
  8. Watch on the Rhine. Family with a past. And less future.
  9. Shadow of a Doubt. A quite creepy Joseph Cotten.
  10. The Outlaw. There are two reasons for Jane Russells fame.

Topp 10 fra 1944

  1. A Canterbury Tale. Kanskje P&Ps minst tilgjengelige.
  2. Arsenic and Old Lace. Cary Grant i en av sine mest kostelige roller.
  3. Double Indemnity. Diskutabelt beste noir.
  4. To Have and Have Not. « I’m hard to get, Steve. All you have to do is ask me.»
  5. The Chronicle History of King Henry the Fift with His Battell Fought at Agincourt in France. «We few, we happy few, we band of brothers».
  6. The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek. Jente våkner fyllesjuk og gravid i 1944, dette er Preston Sturges.
  7. Hail the Conquering Hero. To på rappen, de er omtrent like bra.
  8. Ivan The Terrible. Grandiost.
  9. Lifeboat. Minimalistisk.
  10. The Most Beautiful. Ensembledrama.

Topp 10 fra 1947

  1. Black Narcissus. Nonner, sensualitet og galskap. Fantastisk film.

  3. Odd Man Out. Erkebritiske Mason er irsk så det holder.
  4. Pursued. Robert Mitchum var bare best dette året.
  5. The Bishop’s Wife. Det nærmeste Wilder kom Cary Grant.
  6. Nightmare Alley. Underkjent noir, løftet fram av MoC.
