Year by Year Polls: 1957 (CLOSED)

#1

Post by gromit82 » October 23rd, 2018, 6:26 am

Welcome to the Year-by-Year Poll! This poll is for the year 1957.

These polls are fairly simple. We work our way through film history selecting a different year each time, and you list your top films from the given year. Depending on the number of voters, the poll usually produces a list of around 50 to 90 films and is a great way of finding recommendations. Lots of people will also list other films outside their top 20 as honorable mentions or runners-up.

The rules:

Update with things not changing: Please post your list right here in this thread. Although there has been some discussion of switching to IMDb/ICM lists, I'm not ready to implement that yet. So I'm keeping things as they have been here.

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 1957. (Important: If you think that IMDb has the wrong year for a film and you believe a film ought to be eligible for 1957, please let me know early in the voting period if there is a need for an eligibility ruling.)

Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked. Please make sure that if your choices are in order, they are numbered. If I can't figure out what you mean, your ballot may be scored differently from what you expected. Also, if I have a question about identifying a film you listed, I will try to send you a private message, so please make sure to respond.

You may update your ballot at any time before the poll closes. (I won't start counting the actual points for each film until the poll closes.)

The scoring:

You may list choices in order of preference, in which case your top film will receive a number of points equal to the number of films in your list up to 20, with each next-ranked film receiving one fewer point, or in no order, in which case each film will receive the same number of points. So, for example, if you only vote for 5 ranked films, your top film will receive 5 points and your 5th-place film will receive 1 point. If you vote for 20 unranked films, each film will receive 10.5 points; if you vote for 5 unranked films, each film will receive 3 points.

Some resources:

1957 films sorted by most votes on IMDb

1957 films you've rated on IMDb

1957 movies you've checked on ICM

Wikipedia's 1957 in film article

This poll will run for until November 13, 2018 at 9 PM, U.S. Pacific time.

The next poll will be for 2006, and the one after that will be a year-in-review poll for 2018. After that will be a poll for 1932, which will start sometime in February 2019.

Thank you for participating!

16 SAYONARA
17 WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION
18 JUSQUE AU DERNIER/UNTIL THE LAST ONE
19 WHITE NIGHTS
20 THE SEVENTH SIN

HMs: THE DEERSLAYER, SPRING REUNION; THE LAST TYCOON (TV); NIGHTS OF CABIRIA; PEYTON PLACE: THE PAJAMA GAME; MOTHER INDIA; SILK STOCKINGS; WIDE OPEN ROAD; UNE MANCHE ET LA BELLE/A KISS FOR A KILLER; THE BROTHERS RICO; TROOPER HOOK; TWILIGHT GIRLS; A FACE IN THE CROWD; CRIME OF PASSION; SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS; and PATHS OF GLORY


Predictions - I'm guessing the Lumet will top the poll, with The Bergman(s), THRONE OF BLOOD, The Fellini and Visconti weighing in for the Foreignian Mafia, plus the Wilder, Lean, Kubrick , Donen and SWEET SMELL OF SUCCESS all doing well.

Obscurities?

If you looking for viewings before deadline any or all of these may not be on your radar:

ABANDON SHIP - grim but gripping overcrowded lifeboat drama with Tyrone Power deciding which passengers get to take an early bath.

LES ESPIONS - astonishing Clouzot thriller with Martita Hunt and Peter Ustinov among shady characters up to no good in bizarre asylum.

NO DOWN PAYMENT - slick multi strand drama about four young couples in new housing scheme... ambitious Patricia Owens makes things hard for Ex GI hubbie Jeffrey Hunter; salesman Tony Randall becomes a drunk under pressure from hyper critical Sheree North; Cameron Mitchell struggles with anger management when Joanne Woodward gets slutty; Barbara Rush and Pat Hingle are casual racists.

LES LOUVES/THE SHE WOLVES/DEMONIAC - fanciful but engrossing dark tale of assumed identities, POW escapees,sibling rivalry, blackmail, betrayal and murder....from the Boileau/Narjac team that gave us DIABOLIQUE and the novel filmed as VERTIGO. Wonderful "just desserts" ending.

JUSQUE AU DERNIER - neat "Thieves fall out" thriller with novel circus setting and young J Moreau comforting the gang...

SEVENTH SIN - atmospheric adaptation of Maugham's THE PAINTED VEIL with Eleanor Parker giving strong turn as unfaithful wife battling cholera epidemic in Chinese village....and MGM gloss adding lustre. The husband and lover are weakly cast and played, but G Sanders splendid as Maugham character/narrator. Overall I'd give this one the edge over the Garbo and Naomi Watts versions. It was originally slated for Ava Gardner, and V Minnelli finished it uncredited after Ronald Neame left production part way through. It lost over a million dollars for MGM :( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Seven ... th_Sin.jpg


EDIT
Re Predictions - KANAL (unseen by me) appears to have been the biggie I forgot.

Surpised I seem to be lone voice championing RAINTREE COUNTY and PAL JOEY - I know both have their detractors but former worth a look for Liz Fans and for plush MGM production values and lovely score...although obviously it a failure by its own lofty ambition to surpass GWTW, on its own terms there is a lot to like.

PAL JOEY is only remotely the film of the show, with the seedier elements from the "book" gone along with much of the original score, and the more ribald numbers censored (No "Ants that invaded my pants finis!" lyricsto be found in BEWITCHED, BOTHERED & BEWILDERED here, and the IN OUR LITTLE DEN OF INIQUITY number has gone entirely) . But as the replacement songs are of the order of MY FUNNY VALENTINE, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TIME IT WAS and THE LADY IS A TRAMP it would be churlish to reject the movie entirely - and Sinatra is well cast even if Hayworth disappoints a little as Vera, and Novak legendarily bad in the built up "mouse" part.("This is not to say that Miss Novak is the world's worst actress, but only that she is miscast in any role requiring dialogue" said The Harvard Crimson :lol: ). Now that musicals back in vogue and the X rated content of the show is no barrier to being seen on screen maybe we could get a faithful film version?

Apparently I've only seen 11 films from 1957.... but well, I've never really practiced watching films based on their year of release. I don't have much on my watchlist from this year either, but there's three films from three great directors I yet have to see: Throne of Blood, Il grido and Tokyo Twilight; especially looking forward to the Ozu.

1. Letyat zhuravli / The Cranes are Flying
2. Toute la mémoire du monde / All the Memory of the World (short)
3. Smultronstället / Wild Strawberries
4. Det sjunde inseglet / The Seventh Seal
5. The Tarnished Angels
6. Sweet Smell of Success
7. Adebar (short)
8. Paths of Glory
9. Nights of Cabiria
10. 12 Angry Men
11. A Man and His Dog Out for Air (short)
