Year by Year Polls: 1946 (Closed)

Post by gromit82 »

Welcome to the Year by Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1946.

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 50-90 films and is a great way of finding recommendations. You can also list other films outside your top 20 as honorable mentions or runners-up.

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 1946 (unless a specific film has been otherwise declared eligible).

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but for ranked ballots, your list must be numbered. Partially ranked lists (where a certain number at the top are ranked, and the rest are unranked) are allowed. Please make sure that what you mean to do with your list is clear.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1946, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot cannot be counted if the IMDb urls are not included. (And if you list only the URLs but not the films' titles, you'll significantly reduce your fellow voters' enjoyment of this poll, so please make sure to include both titles and URLs.)

- Please note, you must post your URL list yourself rather than having someone else do that for you.

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. If there are 5 films on the list, the top film will receive 5 points, the next one 4, etc. You get the idea.

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.

(Yes, that's a different closing time from the usual; it's a holiday weekend in the U.S.) You may revise or add a ballot anytime until the poll is indicated closed in the subject header.

The next poll will be for 1985, followed by 1920.

ICM
November Challenge: None
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

DELIBERATELY EXCLUDED ITS A WONDERFUL LIFE, GREAT EXPECTATIONS and NOTORIOUS. IF I were allocating ballot places purely on my numerical ratings out of 10 these three movies would easily be on my list - two of them in top ten placings... but a) I have not seen any of them in full for an average of 25 years or so b) although my brain tells me they are all very good I have no affection for any of them, c) they are all well thought of and are widely seen so should do well anyway and d) Dan Duryea needs the love! :D :D :rolleyes:

HMs ANNA AND THE KING OF SIAM; THE CAPTIVE HEART; THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES; GILDA; MY DARLING CLEMENTINE; LA BATAILLE AU RAIL; PANIQUE; THE STRANGER; TO EACH HIS OWN; THE SEARCHING WIND;HUMORESQUE and LA BELLE ET LA BETE

Predictions From vague look at ballots the Wyler, Hawks, Ford and Cocteau seem to be strong front runners.


Obscurities


In a strong year for Noir don't overlookImage, an engaging amnesia drama with flashbacks galore

and this is a neglected Western,,, beautifully filmed and I believe with an Oscar winning song courtesy of Hoagy
Image

Image
Image
are both neat B noirs

Image
Working girls out to snare millionaires no original concept but this 1946 incarnation has dandy cast of Claire Trevor, Ann Bvorak, Gail Russell and Jane Wyatt as the shop girls who gamble all on renting a mansion for a month .. Adolphe Menjou & Billie Burke assist with the ruse

In no way obscure... but anyone looking for recs then Image is a good bet... a divisive movie.. hailed as a masterpiece by some , but also described as "an enormous piece of dustbin" :P ... but love it or loathe it, your classic cinema education is incomplete until you have seen it.

You love it more than I do????!!! :angry: :P :D

Dan was not really erm..... "dreamboat" material... but he scrubbed up nicely in this rather charming romcom, bagging Ella Raines in the process

Some actors just came along with the right skills at the right time to be Noir icons. Duryea, Raines and Bendix are three such talents. (Raines has the best eyes in cinema history.) I put off White Tie for a long time because I knew it was more comedy than Noir and assumed the script wouldn't be up to their talent, but I found it thoroughly charming.
