Year-by-Year Polls: 1941 (CLOSED)

#1

Post by Rufus-T »

Welcome to the Year-by-Year Poll!

This poll is for the year 1941

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. Lots of people will also list other films outside their 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 1941.

- Your ballot can be either ranked or unranked, but I will assume it's ranked unless otherwise stated. For ranked ballots it makes it easier if you use a numbered list.

- IMPORTANT: Along with a list of the titles from 1941, please include the corresponding list of bare IMDb urls for the same films. Your ballot will be deemed disqualified if the IMDb urls are not included.


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, well 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.

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!

Probably is. I do see that he post lists in several polls (at least the year-by-year ones), but not participating. Only recently, I see him write essay length posts rather than the short straight forward posts. Just observation. I could be wrong. As long as he is okay, that is the most important.

Tsk, can't even make an innocuous cutesy post on a film forum anymore without having ones mental health called into question. If you thought THAT post was an indication of me losing my marbles I can't image you having seen much of what I posted in the past, let alone any of the shit during my wild years.

Here's where I come in and ask for any accessible <30mins shorts that people recommend! I didn't do so hot at watching Canadian shorts, but this is a new month, new look, so I'll try harder to see as many 1941 short recs as possible

I'm quite pleased with this selection + knowing in advance to hook me up with my shorts fixings! Only seen Of Pups and Puzzles - which will make my list, but will investigate the others! Thank you for thinking of me!

Shorts? I got shorts.

Three of the best of the 12 Sniffles cartoons from Chuck Jones:

The Brave Little Bat
Toy Trouble
Sniffles Bells the Cat

More Warner Brothers:

All This and Rabbit Stew
A Coy Decoy
Elmer's Pet Rabbit
A Heckling Hare
Porky's Bear Facts
Tortoise Beats Hare
Wabbit Twouble


Fleischer's first two Superman cartoons

Superman
The Mechanical Monsters

Experimental:

Contrathemis (Dwinell Grant)
Number 2: Message From the Sun (Harry Smith)

General live action:

An Airman's Letter to His Mother (Michael Powell)
Famalicão (Manoel de Oliveira)

These are just my favorites at the moment, I've seen quite a few more, and I suspect I'll be watching a few more shorts before posting my ballot for this year also. There are tons of Disney and MGM cartoons for this year - not really ever priorities for me so I've seen few - and a whole mess of Three Stooges, if you're into those. But it looks like plenty of other fringe stuff as well if you dig. I hope to dig a little.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Yeah, PUNQ puts all our viewing patterns into perspective!

1941 is actually one of the years I have seen the least (the WW2 years are all quite bad for me) and have only caught 62 features. Somehow I have still seen 20 films I consider great so at least that's something, even if it is almost exclusively American:

1. Citizen Kane (1941, Orson Welles)
2. Sullivan's Travels (1941, Preston Sturges)
3. The Sea Wolf (1941, Michael Curtiz)
4. The Little Foxes (1941, William Wyler)
5. Tobacco Road (1941, John Ford)
6. Ball of Fire (1941, Howard Hawks)
7. Roztomilý clovek / A Charming Man (1941, Martin Fric)
8. All That Money Can Buy (1941, William Dieterle)
9. High Sierra (1941, Raoul Walsh)
10. Ladies in Retirement (1941, Charles Vidor)

11. Mikaheri no tou / Introspection Tower (1941, Hiroshi Shimizu)
12. They Died with Their Boots On (1941, Raoul Walsh)
13. Remorques (1941, Jean Grémillon)
14. Manpower (1941, Raoul Walsh)
15. How Green Was My Valley (1941, John Ford)
16. Genroku Chûshingura / The 47 Ronin (1941, Kenji Mizoguchi)
17. The Lady Eve (1941, Preston Sturges)
18. The Devil and Miss Jones (1941, Sam Wood)
19. The Maltese Falcon (1941, John Huston)
20. Hotel Modrá hvezda / The Blue Star Hotel (1941, Martin Fric)

No need to brag, I've seen about a thousand [feature] films made before 1968 myself.

... (D:)
lol, sorry, but bragging rights is the only reward I get for watching so many films from each year :party: It's then you realize how many average and below par movies there are. You can either see the general consensus of what's the Top-30 or so films from each year... ooooor you can do what I do and watch everything and end up with practically the same top-20 as everybody else :thumbsup:

That's true. And the best part of it is all the character actors I've grown to love. Especially back in those days when they made dozens of movies a year. They almost become family members because you see them so often.

^ I feel the same way about many Euro actors who appeared in the gialli and poliziotteschi films... started to think George Hilton might be a long, lost family member.

Going to pass on this year, since I can't make a top 10 that will include all the usual suspect anyhow.

Did you just call any contribution so far which doesn't rely on extracanonical entries worthless? :satstunned:

tehe
Yeah, I never take part for those either, basically everything pre-1950 for me. Call it strategical non-voting :unsure:
