  3. I quite liked ' Marty ' but I doubt it will get a single vote It's up against very tough competition.
    Far be it for me to tell someone how to run a thread but this should have been broken up into decades.

    GF & GF2
    Patton
    One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest.

    Strange there seems to be so little love for Midnight Cowboy. Fantastic movie imo.

    My favorite of these, by a mile, is One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.

    So true about Midnight Cowboy. One of my faves and one of the greatest movies ever made if you ask me.

    Every frame is magic.

    Toughest grouping for me, as it includes my 2 favorite decades - '60s and '70s. More than half of this list would be in my top 5 of the first or last 25 year list if they were mixed in with them.

    Wanted to cover every decade in my top 5, so:

    Marty
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Midnight Cowboy
    The Sting
    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    I’m surprised Patton and From Here toEternity made weak showings. Payton is fabulous film making with a young Francis Ford Coppola writing much of it.

    I think it's just the level of competition!

    FWIW, I voted for "Patton"! :)
