64. You've actually seen the 1934 trilogy of Les Miserables starring the immortal Harry Baur!!!!!

Bravo. You're the only English speaking person I've known who's seen those three films and sat through that 4.5 hours of cinematic greatness. Seldom mentioned in America, Baur was a major world star before the war and was murdered by the Gestapo. Harry Baur is one of the greatest actors in history and Rod Steiger's greatest influence. Speaking of Steiger, I think Sidney Lumet's The Pawnbroker where Steiger put on a masterful performance deserves mention. I love your list, especially The Big Sleep and Night Of The Hunter. Renoir's masterpiece La Grande Illusion and Kurosawa's masterpiece Ikiru are ones I would put in my own top ten. I like the English film The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner. And I think the modern masterpiece and what I consider Spielberg's only great film (one that never fails to bring me to tears) is Schindler's List and belongs on a top list.
