I'm having trouble working up the enthusiasm to watch anymore 1924 films this month, so I think this will be it. At least I found a new #1 for the year.

1. The Great White Silence
2. Sherlock Jr.
3. Michael
4. The Navigator
5. Die Stadt ohne Juden [The City Without Jews] - I would love for this to get restored one day.

Well, since nobody had any shorts they wanted me to watch, I'll just go ahead and submit my list.

Also the "every movie you checked from 1924" thing doesn't actually show everything you've checked from that year, as its missing The Witch's Fiddle (1924) for me, for no apparent reason. That and Paris qui dort + There He Goes turned out to be 1925 films, so had to exclude them despite showing up in the list.

01. Die Nibelungen: Siegfried
02. Ballet mécanique
03. The Great White Silence
04. Die Nibelungen: Kriemhilds Rache
05. Aelita
06. Der letzte Mann
07. Sherlock Jr.
08. Accidental Accidents
09. Entr'acte
10. The Navigator
11. The Witch's Fiddle
12. Symphonie diagonale
13. He Who Gets Slapped
More or less everything I have seen for 1924

2. Greed (1924, Erich von Stroheim)

19. Le miracle des loups [Miracle of the Wolves] (1924, Raymond Bernard)
20. The Sea Hawk (1924, Frank Lloyd)
I find it noteworthy that out of over 300 (!) films, you end up with what is agreed to be absolute canon in the Top 10 and mostly for the rest of Top 20 too.

Good I stick to the 7 films I've seen so far from 1924, only hits so far! :ph43r:

Shoot, I was hoping to watch The Great White Silence before the poll closed.

1. Die Nibelungen: Siegfried (Fritz Lang)
1. Die Nibelungen: Kreimheld's Wrath (Fritz Lang)
3. The Last Laugh (FW Murnau)
4. Greed (Eric Stroheim)
5. Kinoglaz (Dziga Vertov)
6. Sherlock Jr. (Buster Keaton)
7. Symphonie diagonale (Viking Eggeling)
8. The Navigator (Donald Crisp and Buster Keaton)
9. Kino-pravda no. 20: Pioneer Pravda (Dziga Vertov)
10. Ballet Mechanique (Fernand Leger)
Spoiler
I forget the rules regarding tied positions, but since I saw Die Nibelungen presented as a single two-part film I'm opting to list it that way. If ties are disallowed, I'm fine with them ranked in the listed order.

Thanks for clarifying. Unfortunately, our spreadsheet isn't set up to handle tied positions like that. We can only do fully ranked, partially ranked (with the ranked films at the top of the list, followed by the unranked films), or unranked. So this ballot will be treated as ranked with "Siegfried" #1 and "Kreimheld's Wrath" #2.

I'm going to start counting ballots now. You can still post new ballots until I finish counting, but please don't change any existing ballots (unless I send you a PM to let you know of a problem on your ballot).
