I've seen most, not all, of the films listed. Of these, it came down to the two Brando films, A Streetcar named Desire and On the Waterfront. Anyone who hasn't seen the young Brando is missing some absolutely amazing acting. In the end, my vote went for On the Waterfront, although it was a closer contest than it might be for most of you. Streetcar shows Brando at his most brutal self.
I liked The Last Tycoon quite a bit myself when it came out. It seemed like it ddn't hold up all that well when I saw it years later, but I'd like to see it again. Baby Doll and Splendor in the Grass are pretty good as well.
Saw "The Majestic" w Jim Carry last nite. It had a good reminder that Elia Kazan testified before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee and named names to further his own career. Good people were blacklisted and their careers ruined because of that. He was a great directer but took the low road in his career and that should be part of his legacy. Here too.
