2 Comments to Best Films - 1931

  1. Anne W.

    At least Cimarron is not in your list. I still can’t understand how that movie could have won the Academy Award.

  2. I consider the Maltese Falcon as one of the best films ever. It could be that by being Maltese I am biased, but thatis my opinion.
