Glad to see Clair getting some attention, Ally. The out-of-print book Rene Clair by Celia McGerr is excellent and worth hunting for. My favorite Clair is I Married a Witch, though I am also fond of The Flame of New Orleans, because it's one of the few films to provide a decent part for the beautiful and funny Theresa Harris.

Josh, can't wait to see your list. Getting into Rene Clair was interesting. He has many underseen movies (notice how I didn't say underrated). I have seen about 3 or 4 more of his films, but I will have to wait to update the list until tomorrow, because those films didn't fit into the top 2 tiers. Yes, it's late here (11:30 PM). :o
