    I didn't realize there was a western genre when I listed High Noon for 50's Drama. If there is a western genre than please switch High Noon to:

    The Seventh Seal (which actually I should have had there in the first place)

    I don't consider The Red Shoes to be a musical because for me, a musical contains songs with words that the actors sing.

    Ok, let me change push Great Expectations out of the drama slot and put The Red Shoes in (edit made). I think I'll still reserve The Maltese Falcon for the mystery/thriller category though.

    There's a mystery category??? Clearly I didn't read this very carefully. :b


    Ok switch out The Maltese Falcon for

    40's Drama
    Citizen Kane

    Angelo, No, Magnolia is not a musical because I said songs, just having 1 song sung by characters in the film doesn't cut it. I also don't consider movies like Saturday Night Fever, Fame, or Urban Cowboy, musicals. Music is an integral part of the film, but the actors are not performing the songs or singing.

    It was tough limiting 60's westerns to just three, this was the strongest genre of the 60's, imho.
