1927, 1928 and 1929. These three years were very productive ones for cinema. Great lists as always. I might add "Hangman's house (John Ford)" to 1928 list. Keep up the good work!

Hello again, I would put The Wedding March in the top tier and add Beggars of Life to the essentials. Bob

I would suggest Jean Grémillon's Maldone. To me it's one of the best films from this year, but since you likely haven't watched it yet you might want to consider adding it to your secondary list.

Great blog!
