    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
