My #1 film for 1963 was chosen for me more than 30 years ago when I first saw it. I’ve been mesmerized by this film ever since and it remains one of my all time favorite films.
This has been a strange year for films for me because I have been always baffled by the fact that Tom Jones won Best Picture when there are so many better films that came out that year.
Update 11 Jul 2017 – Added Love with the Proper Stranger and Dinner For One which bumps down each subsequent choice.
Update 30 April 2018 – Added The man Who Finally Died at #6 which bumps down each subsequent choice.
