Haven't scanned the list yet.....but wanted to say that these types of rankings end up being unduly influenced by the age of the writer and of course, the ages of the sampled group.

As somebody in the Fall of my sixties....my pool of nominations would dwarf anybody in their forties.   And so on.....


PS:  The reason Citizen Kane was bumped by Vertigo?   It's because Vertigo is regularly featured on your cable providers list.....Citizen Kane is not.
