I guess I'll give it a shot.

I miss when getTV was like a 1930s - '50s movie station.

Point of order -- May 31 is Memorial Day and I imagine a lot of folks might not be around due to holiday things.

I forgot about that. I'd be open to moving the start date to the next week if it's an issue for people.

Open to whenever. The holiday won't affect me.

Sure. I'm game.

I can make Monday (Memorial Day) work since all I'd need to do is drop a pick and walk away, but punting for another week works fine as well.

Just to err on the side of caution (I'd like as active a first day as possible), the start date is now June 7.

Just noticed this. I'm in like Flynn.

But when things start getting bad
I just play my music louder"

Just posting to remind everyone we start a week from today. I'm still hoping a few more people will sign up in the interim.

Can't believe I didn't think to ask this sooner -- what's the verdict on serials?

Ratty grabbed what would have been my #1 pick. I wrote it off when I saw my 'first draft position'...good thing, too.

I consider THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD to be one of the rare perfect films.

It's right up there. There's a slight clashing of tones, though; it's pretty easy to distinguish Keighley's "storybook" approach from Curtiz's more mobile camera and use of shadow.

But I've always said, if you cut it down to just Olivia de Havilland's closeups you'd still have a classic for the ages.

It's still the definitive Robin Hood film even after 80+ years of other attempts.

Oh absolutely.  It's not even close.

Nice pick.

Nice pick.

if it makes you feel any better, it was between that and GRAND ILLUSION.  Nice pick yourself!

Had six films yanked off my list today. Good thing we're only making five picks.

My impression of me reading the choices before I posted my own:

"I think I'll pick---DAMMIT! Well, how about--DAMMIT! Maybe I can pick--DAMMIT!" etc.

Still got a good'n though.
