What's the criteria to get on the list, is it 3 votes/35 points?
Aside from Hitch, it might be fun to see statistics of other directors who have topped the polls more than once
I thought the voters were sophisticates who knew World film.
Even I couldn't deny it was one of the top 20 films of the year, and I disagree with those who would remove a film from their list just because it's popular.
I'm rather surprised by the relatively poor showing of Pillow Talk as well - I thought this kind of film was more popular here - certainly Doris Day has a big enough CFB fanbase. But maybe most of the people who talk about her on other threads just aren't voting here? Dunno.
And finally, the CFB's love for thrillers and noir is manifest in yet another win for Alfred Hitchcock, his 9th:
1935 The 39 Steps
1938 The Lady Vanishes
1951 Strangers on a Train
1954 Rear Window
1959 North by Northwest
has this film so thoroughly disappeared from our awareness?
