Thanks Bogie.
That's interesting trivia. I suspect Gabby was a much deeper person than his screen personna will ever acknowledge.

Nosferatu is a great film but we always have many great films that don't make the list. Too many films, not enough slots. I love 1922's Robin Hood and yet it didn't even appear on anyone else's list. Such is lide.

Chris, I really enjoy Gabby Hayes. He's such a goof, but so earnest and well-meaning at the same time. Everyone should have an uncle like Gabby to listen to his tall tales when they're growing up. He was able to single-handedly make dozens of otherwise worthless B westerns entertaining throughout hi...

The first factor in deciding the seedings is overall number of votes. The rankings will determine the rankings of all the films that receive the same number of votes, for example 11 films have three votes each, I then average what rank each of their three votes was. If one film received a #3 and a #...

Hi Anne,
Thank you. I'm sure you and Karie would get along wonderfully. Karie has one of those magnetic personalities that people are drawn to and instantly feel at ease around. How she got stuck with me I'll never understand. I guess I won the wife lotto.

Here are some preliminary numbers (pending any further additions):

There were 120 different films nominated.

51 of those films have multiple votes.

The leading vote getter is Sunrise, which has 12 votes. If this doesn't change it will enter the competition as the number one seed.
