“1. Tabu (how is this on hardly anyones list?)”

Not sure what you mean? It’s been on more than half of them thus far. I want to know why more people don’t share the love for Waterloo Bridge. 1931 was James Whale’s year.

@ Angel – The Congress Dances is terrific, but IMDb lists it as 1932, and at the start we were told to stick to those dates — them’s the rules.

Christopher, I’m referring to the original German language “Der Kongreß tanzt”. I know a French version and an English version were also shot but don’t know if they are as good as the original.
