    My movie viewing gets kind of fuzzy after the late 80s, I am just a very big 30s and 40s film fan but I think overall I have seen around 80 of the films you listed in your HOF. I don’t know if you saw the following movies or why they didn’t make the cut but here goes:

    Claudette Colbert in Tomorrow Is Forever?

    Alan Ladd in Shane?

    James Cagney in Angels With Dirty Faces?

    John Garfield in Pride of The Marines?

    EG Robinson in Dr. Ehrlichs Magic Bullet?

    I know movie opinions are very subjective and we all don’t think alike. But it is real fun just talking about movies and giving recommendations. Alotta great movies on your list!

      I have learned that the sixties through the eighties are my deficient years, but I am slowly working through them as well. I saw “Tomorrow is Forever” years ago, and would have to see it again to be fair. The same goes for “Dr. Ehrlihs Magic Bullet, and I have yet to see “Pride of the Marines”. “I re-watched “Shane” last summer and gave it a five star review so it must fallen fallen just short of “Hall of Fame” status, but quite close. I would imagine that “Angels with Dirty Faces” will be a four or five star film for me as well. Perhaps it’s time to pull that one out of the closet!

      I completely agree about the sharing of movies. When it comes right down to it, others film lovers opinions are the best way to judge what new movies you should see. I constantly find myself watching a great film that came from a trusted and established movie lover. Until I find time to watch every movie that’s been made, (wow) I will just keep talking to other intelligent film aficionados like yourself. Thanks for the fun.
