  1. Forgot how strong a year 1959 was. And with all that – you had Rio Bravo at 1? No Pillow Talk? No Nun’s Story? Some Like It Hot at 8? I might’ve had Ben Hur at 1 since I saw it aS A KID AND FOR A LONGTIME – IT WAs my favorite movie of all time. Since been supplanted by a bunch. But might still be a Top 10.certainly a Top 20.
