I guess people aren't so into videos anymore  :-\   I know it's not Verite-quality, but I did put quite a bit of time into it.

Watched it this morning, didn't have time to comment. A lot of performances from films I haven't seen, but it reminded me how great Thelma Ritter is in Pickup on South Street. She will definitely be making my list. You certainly have a thing for film noir dames.

Martin, I watched your video, it was impressive work to get all those snippets. Most interesting was the 3 cast members from Linda, Linda, Linda all in a group.

Martin and Gotham my favourite overlap from your 1.5 lists is Marty Feldman as Igor.

Gotham great shot from Taxi Driver, DeNiro ripped as.

GC, I think I counted 14 overlap with my own list, and several others I was considering.  It's cool that you have so many new entries, especially Stanwyck! 

Watched it this morning, didn't have time to comment. A lot of performances from films I haven't seen, but it reminded me how great Thelma Ritter is in Pickup on South Street. She will definitely be making my list. You certainly have a thing for film noir dames.

Naturally!  There's a few more coming up in part 2.  Although that half will lean heavier on the more iconic performances... I kind of wish I had worked on the order a little more.

Martin, I watched your video, it was impressive work to get all those snippets. Most interesting was the 3 cast members from Linda, Linda, Linda all in a group.

4 members, actually!  Yes, I'm "throwing away" four slots on my ballot, but I don't care.  I just love those gals, and I'm making up for the mistake of leaving LLL off my 100 films list.

I guess people aren't so into videos anymore  :-\

I chalk it up to people not having time to watch (or perhaps some find it an inconvenience or time consuming to pause the video to write down notes for a written response then go back and play and pause again, repeat) because I find it hard to believe that movie fans wouldn't find an assembly of motion picture clips from some of their favorite movies or performances to be worthy of written feedback.  My reasoning is people here really love screen shots and continue to comment on them, and since clips are the source of screen shots, then people must like them, too, to some degree.

As for me, I've been busy this past week and I only managed to watch a little past 2 minutes of your video.  I'll definitely finish watching it.  I haven't had time to post my response to Col. George Taylor and bobbyb's videos yet.

! should have learned to count better. I do not see it as throwing away four slots, my comment was more around the little surprise I got when the 2nd name from the same clip turned up, then a third and, if I had properly counted, the forth.
