    Rank order:

    Baby Doll (1956)
    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945)
    A Face in the Crowd (1957)
    On the Waterfront (1954)
    East of Eden (1955)
    A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)


    While not the worst director ever, I think he gets my vote for the most overrated. If his direction ever consisted of anything other than "Ham it up more! Overact like there's no tomorrow!", I'd be very surprised. [​IMG]

    1. A Streetcar Named Desire - A
    2. On The Waterfront - A
    (these swap back and forth as to which is my favorite)
    3. Baby Doll - A- (Carroll Baker is smokin' hot, edgy film seething with racism and sexual tension)
    4. East of Eden - B+
    5. Gentleman's Agreement - C+


    Own: 2

    Would like to see several: Viva Zapata!, A Face in the Crowd, Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Panic in the Streets, and Splendor in the Grass
