    I'm trying to track down the list of the best movies of the 1970's, that Ebert would have (probably) done at the end of that decade.
    For instance, several websites list his best of the 1980's:
    http://www.obkb.com/dcljr/sebestxt.html#80s
    And if you go to other sites they have teh list for the 1990's. I need to find the 1970's, though.
    Anyone know what films made up his list for the best of the 1970's?

    Check here. It has all of Siskel & Eberts top 10 lists from 1969-1998, and Ebert's '99 list.
    Edit: I didn't exactly get what you were asking, obviously. But, that site does list his top 10 for each year.

    It's fascinating that neither Siskel nor Ebert put One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest on their Top 10 list despite it sweeping the Academy Awards that year.

    A few years before Siskel died, There was a special episode of Siskel & Ebert in which they discussed the early '70s as the last golden age of Hollywood. They listed a number of movies to see. Carnal Knowledge was one of them, but I can't remember what else they listed.

    Just cause a movie is your favorite movie doesn't mean it's the best movie =) Gladiator is one of my favorite movies but I know it's not the best. Shindler's List is not my favorite movie but I know that it was one of the best. Lord of the Rings is an exception IMO...it's one of my favorites and it's one of the best =)

    My favorite little "in retrospect...maybe not" moment is Ebert putting Purple Rain on his list of the best ten films of 1984. [​IMG]
