    It had looked like you had nominated it, and then him. But since it's just a nom from him, make mine a second.

    Shoot, what are the chances of me nominating a well-known film? [​IMG]

    FWIW, I nominated: Clockers, Gunman in the Streets, Touchez Pas Au Grisbi, and The Yakuza Papers.

    Makes sense to include the films from the Warner Gangster collection since this is what Steve is celebrating.

    Noms
    White Heat
    Public Enemy
    Little Caesar
    Roaring Twenties


    If I had more I'd nominate the other two

    Okay, four more noms, secs, and thirds for everyone.

    Jim gets his White Heat nom back since Ric had already nominated it; I'll assume he would have seconded it so he's minus a second. [​IMG]

    Beating him to the punch, I'll nominate Angels With Dirty Faces, The Petrified Forest, Carlito's Way, and the recent I'll Sleep When I'm Dead.

    Seconding: Scarface '32, Little Caesar, Public Enemy, The Roaring Twenties, State of Grace, The Krays, The Killers '46, Reservoir Dogs

    Third: Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

    Yes, The Killer is the John Woo film.

    I should have also specified that Get Carter is the original Michael Caine film & not the horrid remake.
