Few? PA listed 11 and didn't include Young Mr. Lincoln, Gunga Din and The Roaring Twenties. Scratch that surface there's The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Beau Geste, Dark Victory, Each Dawn I Die, Jesse James, Intermezzo, Dark Victory. It would be a battle of titans. The yearly poll has votes spread across 25 titles.

The 1999 poll is spread across 20 titles. And look at 39 again...the vast majority of votes are concentrated on the predictable top 4.

I haven't been refuted with facts in a long time. Hardly know what to do now.

I split my vote between will participate no matter and won't participate no matter the year. I'll try a touch of catch-up but not let it dominate life/queue.

I say '20s or '30s. Need to dig back. Too much focus on the new stuff.

Be sure to read the poll question carefully. I didn't at first, I thought we were voting for our preferred decade.

Thank you for clarifying. I had a great deal of trouble wording the question.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Voted for I'll participate no matter what...

But, it depends on the films I can obtain by streaming.
