Author Comments: 

NOTE: I've inadvertedly linked every year to the yearly list of the user of the user I cloned this list from. I'm too lazy to delete them so enjoy the guy's lists!

Cloned From: 

This format is pretty awesome, considering cloning.

Excellent lists too. ;)

Well I cloned it too so go ahead, bud. Thankya :)

Solid list: Kudos to you, sir

Regardless of cloning, that is...

Thank you! And yeah, I didn't expect there to be links whilst I was doing the editing to put my own in. I don't intend on doing any other yearly lists myself either, besides future ones. Any recommendations for imcomplete years?

The old man and the sea (John Sturges) 1958
Grand Hotel (Edmund Goulding) 1932
20,000 years in sing-sing (Michael Curtiz) 1933
Of Mice and Men (Lewis Milestone) 1939
Riders of the Purple Sage (Hamilton Macfadden) 1931

I'm not a classic movie buff by any means, there's a few suggestions. Also, I'd put Romero's classic 'Night of the Living Dead' at the top of it's year, if not decade, but w/e. And it's Cool Hands Luke, not Cold Hands Luke, if I remember correctly (not trying to be nitpicky, but nearly every great classic I could think of was already on here, so there's only so much improvement to be made)
