    The Best DVDs of Classic Films

    I enjoy their new book¿Leonard Maltin¿s Classic Movie Guide (ISBN 0-452-28620-4). I own 38 of their 64 ¿Our Picks: The Best DVDs of Classic Films.¿ My favorites on their list are: All About Eve (1950), Gone with the Wind (1939), Sunset Blvd. (1950), The Grapes of Wrath (1940), and The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948). However, I would exclude the following in their next printing: Foolish Wives (1922), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), Tarzan the Ape Man (1932), Gun Crazy (1949), Winchester ¿73 (1950), The Wages of Fear (1952), Pickup on South Street (1953), Written on the Wind (1957), The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Black Orpheus (1959), and Rocco and His Brothers (1960) (NB Not pre-1960 either). I would include in their stead the following obvious omissions: All the King's Men (1949), Citizen Kane (1941), From Here to Eternity (1953), In Which We Serve (1942), It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), On the Waterfront (1954), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), The Defiant Ones (1958), and The Lost Weekend (1945). If they wanted to increase the pick list, I would also include: A Place in the Sun (1951), Ben-Hur (1959), and Marty (1955). The more famous annual Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide has about 18,000 entries. There are many redundant entries among the more than 9000 movies in the new Leonard Maltin's Classic Movie Guide. I presume future additions of the annual Movie Guide will eliminate many of the duplications since the Classic Movie Guide is scheduled to be updated in five years. Robert F. Naples, Collector.
