Nice picks, but you reminded me how much I miss watching the tennis majors this year....

My list. The top 50 is ranked, the rest is unranked.

The '50s are in competition for my favorite decade in film, and might have the most 10/10s of any other decade for me (25 of them).

For those curious and who don't click links, my top 10 were:

1. A Bloody Spear on Mount Fuji
2. A Man Escaped
3. Vertigo
4. Seven Samurai
5. Pather Panchali
6. La strada
7. Journey to Italy
8. Ugetsu
9. Gun Crazy
10. The Bridge on the River Kwai

I have fairly traditional tastes I guess, the three more unusual picks are Mount Fuji, Gun Crazy and Kwai. If Mount Fuji and Gun Crazy were more widely seen they'd be part of the all-time great "canon," if you ask me. They've just flown a little under the radar. Bridge on the River Kwai is partially a nostalgia pick, since it's a childhood favorite, but even though my tastes have changed completely it's still a perfect film in every way.

Also saying La Strada is better than Nights of Cabiria might be seen as a bit of a hot take to some, but it's no slight on Cabiria which is just a little bit further down the list.

Yeah - I make my list simply by filtering my overall favorites list, which I plan to do at the last moment so as not to double up work.

Does anyone know of an efficient way of creating this list on ICM? I enjoy creating my lists for these projects, with the exception of the actual ICM list process, which feels like a dull and time consuming exercise of reinventing the wheel each time. Currently, I have everything in Excel, which is a much easier way of maintaining rankings and mixing and matching lists for different purposes - countries, years, decades etc.

I always sort my lists in Word (I copy eligible films from spreadsheet with url included), then copy just the urls into iCM.

I use Excel as well, but I also note the imdb tt ID, so I generally use imdb lists for these polls. You can still use ICM lists, but instead of adding each film individually, add them using the imdb URLs.

If you're using your own spreadsheet you have to be sure the years are correct. We're using IMDb. Do you rate movies on IMDb? In that case you could export your rating, filter those on the 50's. If you have rankings in your own spreadsheet you can use vlookup to get your rankings into the IMDb export.

Nah, it's easier to drag and drop when I'm trying to rank something

Thanks all - I guess there's no way of doing this without compiling a crapload of IMDB links. Which presumably will save me time on future lists.

Well, you could try creating a list on imdb using the listhelper script, that might make it easier and faster.

Install the ICM Enhanced Script. Export your favorites list. Filter out anything not from the 1950s. Reupload.

That's how I'm going to make my list - It'll probably take me ~10ish minutes.

I was sure I had already submitted my list. Thankfully today it occurred to me that I don't get any notifications for this thread. Stupid me... The 50's have so many wonderful films!!!

Bloody Spear is a misleading title which is never helpful. It was a social message movie but title suggests you are about to see a war movie. I haven't seen it for 20 years, would like to see it again at some point.

It's funny how mis-marketing can make all the difference in determining a film's classic status. Gun Crazy isn't a great title either! Of course, when the producers saw the finished product and decided it was a "prestige picture" they renamed it Deadly is the Female...which is even worse, in my opinion.

I was hoping to see a few more 50s films before the deadline, but I am almost certainly going to run out of time. I did make a couple of edits since I posted my list earlier though.
