1957 Re-cap and 10 Favorites List


I have now watched 92 films that were released in 1957.  They can be found here.

1957 was a year full of riches.  The films proved to be impossible for me to rank so the numbers should be ignored.

Worthy favorites that did not make my list are:  Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison; The Lower Depths; The Pajama Game; Curse of the Demon; Le Notti Bianche; 3:10 to Yuma; Tokyo Twilight; and The Incredible Shrinking Man.

10.  Kanal – directed by Andrezej Wadja


9.  Throne of Blood – directed by Akira Kurosawa


8.  12 Angry Men – directed by Sidney Lumet


7.  The Bridge on the River Kwai – directed by David Lean


6.  A Face in the Crowd – directed by Elia Kazan


5.  Wild Strawberries – directed by Ingmar Bergman


4.  Paths of Glory – directed by Stanley Kubrick


3. Sweet Smell of Success – directed by Alexander MacKendrick


2.  Nights of Cabiria – directed by Federico Fellini

  1. I’ve seen nine of your top ten. I think seven or eight of them would probably end up in my top ten from this year. I’m not sure I could rank them, either.

    The only one that might (might, mind you) not make my list is Nights of Cabiria, which I like, but don’t love. I haven’t seen Kanal.

    Hell of a year!
