Added Spirits of the Dead to 1968, which, taken as a whole, comes in under its only competition, Hang 'Em High.
Introduced half-stars with The Man in the High Castle. Ratings from this point forward are:
Added The Man in the High Castle to 1963. No competition from Dementia 13, but an interesting battle with Fifth Planet. Castle is certainly a deeper, more intellectual work, but Planet is a whole lot more accessible (it has, after all, a plot). Toss up that depends on your mood and what you're looking for.
The French poster for Helen of Troy. The movie was filmed in Italy, with Italian and French actors whose voices were dubbed into English. Honestly, I didn't notice the dubbing until Brigitte Bardot started speaking in a very American accent.
Added Helen of Troy to 1956, a year topped so far by a short film, The Red Balloon. Here's a black and white still from this technicolor (technically, WarnerColor) film.
If there is one thing Bardin's book is not, it is a children's book. But that is exactly what this awful alternate cover, with its cutesy horse, makes it appear to be. (In fact, this is the cover of the first edition. Perhaps this explains, at least in part, the poor performance of the book on first publication.)
This more familiar cover, featuring a Salvador Dali painting, appeared after the Brits started making much of the book's psychological elements.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
