My eyeball estimates going through the thread would have put Ordet at the top by a pretty wide margin, so I was surprised it finished 5th, despite getting the most #1 votes.

Among the Westerns, I'm surprised that Tennessee's Partner and The Naked Dawn both beat Man without a Star, considering that the latter has been on the 500<400 list for years, and the other two have never made the list.

I am disappointed that Tennessee's Partner did not win the poll. :P

Also Orgullo is a semi-western. Glad to see some love for it.

thanks for doing this

Surprised not only that NIGHT OF THE HUNTER was bested - but also by the margin of the victory - quite decisive - DIABOLIQUE - which I watched again on Boxing day.

Surprised at how much Diabolique won by. Glad to see Kiss Me Deadly landed in the top ten, one of the best film noir. Thanks max for the poll and the result.
