"She came at me in sections -- more curves than a scenic railway. She was bad. She was dangerous. I wouldn't trust her any farther than I could throw her. She was selling hard, but I wasn't buying."

I most want to see his collaborations with Garland.
I don't care for modern films. All crashing cars and close-ups of people's feet.

Prefer the melodramas over the musicals, but here are my votes:

Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1962) 9/10
Home from the Hill (1960) 7.5/10
Some Came Running (1958) 7/10
The Reluctant Debutante (1958) 8/10
Gigi (1958) 7.5/10
Designing Woman (1957) 7/10
Tea and Sympathy (1956) 10/10
Lust for Life (1956) 5/10
The Cobweb (1955) 7/10
The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) 8/10
An American in Paris (1951) 4/10
Father of the Bride (1950) 4/10
Madame Bovary (1949) 5.5/10
The Pirate (1948) 8/10
Undercurrent (1946) 6/10
The Clock (1945) 6.5/10
Meet Me in St. Louis (1944) 9.5/10

seen too long ago to remember, none made a very good impression:
The Band Wagon (1953)
Ziegfeld Follies (1946) [loved the Judy Garland scene though]
Yolanda and the Thief (1945)
