I'm at 124/250. One away from "Bronze" in what's probably my least favorite decade for film. Not many '40s films left that personally intrigue me, but seeing The Thief of Baghdad, The Devil's Envoys, La Terra Trema or Les Anges du Peche would be a painless way to get to 50%.

Highest favourite is #2 Casablanca (1942)
