      Several of those were high on our own personal lists, too! We had a hard time picking our blogger’s choices this month – so many great films from 1955.

      I definitely regret the lack of Guys and Dolls here. I think I’m going to post a little something about it next week as part of another article.

      You’ve got a good list here, but failure to include “Marty” is blinding. Not only did it win the Oscar, but it made Ernest Borgnine a rightful star. A great, if not understated, performance.
