Welcome to the latest Year-by-Year poll.

This poll is for 1948, the year of ballet, the Bard and stolen bicycles.


The Rules

You can vote for a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 films.

Feature films, documentaries, short films, TV movies and TV mini-series are all eligible, but not continuing TV series or individual TV episodes.

We use IMDb dates for consistency, so a title should be listed on IMDb as 1948.

Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but I will assume it's ranked unless otherwise stated. For ranked ballots it makes it easier if you use a numbered list.


The Scoring

For ranked ballots, the top-ranked title will receive a number of points equal to the number of titles on the ballot, with each succeeding title receiving one fewer point. So the top title on a list of 20 films will receive 20 points, the next 19 points and so on. If the list has only 10 films, the top title will receive 10 points, the next one 9, and so on.

For unranked ballots, each title will receive an equal share of the total points that would have been allotted to the ballot if it had been ranked. If there are 20 films on the ballot, this means each one would receive 10.5 points.

Yeah, with this year it's been especially difficult to recall a full sequence or even a single line of dialogue from most of them. The only ones I really remember well are my top five, and the rest I don't think I've seen or even really thought about much ever since I graduated college almost four years ago, which is where I did the bulk of my pre-1970's viewings. The amount of free time I've had and also the availability of most older films has been dwindling these last couple of years.

Predictions? Without having looked at other ballots no idea - The Hustons, Hawks, Lean, Ford, Reed and Ophuls should all do well

Obscurities?

HOMECOMING - any pairing of Gable and Turner can hardly be that obscure, but this (third of four pairings) doesn't seem to get the love it deserves - Gable confesses his torrid watime romance with Lana to wife Anne Baxter....

ROAD HOUSE - Ida Lupino always got the leftovers from Warners, but this one is more appetising than most.

NO ROOM AT THE INN Freda Jackson as grotesque villainess ripping off and abusing evacuee children n smash hit postwar melo - I only have edited version (just over an hour) Full one sought if anyone knows where....

KISS THE BLOOD OFF MY HANDS ... winner of "come hither" title of the year.... fogbound London set noir with Lancaster & Fontaine

TEXAS BROOKLYN AND HEAVEN - jolly romcom about aspirant playwright with attractive stars (Guy Madison & Diana Lynn)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTouhHqCZiw


DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS - erroneously touted as the first film about a female serial killer (by someone who presumably never saw THIRTEEN WOMEN) is big on atmosphere with Irish actress Siobham McKenna as the bad lot servant girl, Maxwell Reed (Mr Joan Collins as was) as her bit of rough, and young Honor GOLDFINGER Blackman as the nice heroine.

ANGEL ON THE AMAZON pricelss jungle tat about an explorer who discovers a mysterious jungle goddess who never ages!!!! Miss at your peril. :D

Is Act of Violence eligible for this poll? It is currently listed as 1949 on IMDb, however, it has always been traditionally cited as 1948 release and the year 1949 might have already been polled by us (I forget).

Evidence: https://www.icheckmovies.com/search/movies/?query=act+of+violence - tagged as 1948 on iCM
More evidence https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/act_of_violence/ - still listed as 1948 on Rotten Tomatoes

Anyway, here's my ranked list. If Act of Violence is allowed, you can slot it right in at #1 in my list and knock every other title down by one spot. Yes, it's that good a film.

1. Hollow Triumph (Steve Sekely)
2. Oliver Twist (David Lean)
3. Hamlet (Laurence Olivier)
4. The Snake Pit (Anatole Litvak)
5. Drunken Angel (Akira Kurosawa)
6. The Judge Steps Out (Boris Ingster)
7. The Time of Your Life (H.C. Potter)
8. Red River (Howard Hawks)
9. Portrait of Jennie (William Deiterle)
10. Tenth Avenue Angel (Roy Rowland)
11. Call Northside 777 (Henry Hathaway)
12. The Search (Fred Zinnemann)
13. Yellow Sky (William A. Wellman)
14. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (John Huston)
15. So This is New York (Richard Fleischer)
16. The Boy with Green Hair (Joseph Losey)
17. The Woman in White (Peter Godfrey)
18. Force of Evil (Abraham Polonsky)
19. Blanche Fury (Marc Allégret)
20. Inner Sanctum (Lew Landers)
