    One question Steve. Foreign made or foreign language?

    I just want to settle this before we get into films like the English Hitchcock’s (all English) and ones like Bridge over the River Kwai (English/U.S.)

    Lew, I don't think we need to stick entirely with foreign language films, but I would prefer to stay away from the Hitchcocks and films like The Road Warrior and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - those films get enough exposure around here as it is. Besides, those are all too easy to pick - I say we make this more of a challenge. While my first pick is fairly well-known, some of my later picks will be more obscure - I'm going for diversity of theme and style with my list.

    I might be taking this too early but I'll be kicking myself if someone else gets it:

    Les Quarte Cents Coups
    aka The 400 Blows
