Best Years for Film: 1955

by alex peterson

The fifties are the great decade in the history of film and to me it must have to do with being right in the center of history thus far: old masters not yet run out, new ones just gaining steam. Any other ideas or disagreement that the fifties had it all, much welcomed.

I’ll do a bunch of years from this decade, but 1955 had the most favorite films.

for god’s sake how can they not have gotten to
The Ladykillers (Mackendrick)

Top Five at the Box Office, 1955:
1. The Lady and the Tramp
2. Cinerama Holiday
3. Mister Roberts
