Very weak year, to me.

I'll go with Walter Huston again.

Orson Welles for me.

joe burns said...

I've seen none of them. Maybe Welles will win. Not sure.

Louis Morgan said...

Sage Slowdive: Interesting choice.

Fritz: I would like to hear your thoughts Welles.

Joe Burns: I'm surprised you have not seen Kane, but otherwise we shall see.

joe burns said...

Well, I saw the last 45 minutes of it, but not the whole thing.

I've only seen Citizen Kane, but I rate it very highly. If you think anyone was better than Welles I should watch it immediately!

Wait Maltese falcon over citizen Kane wow interesting why do u think so though and do u think Maltese falcon better film than chinatown

Louis Morgan said...

I think Citizen Kane is a great film and directed brilliantly by Orson Welles. But the acting that seems straight from the stage from so much of the cast keeps me from loving the film the way so many do.

I love them both but I guess I slightly prefer Chinatown.
