It’s that time again! I’m in the second half of my research for Top Ten By Year: 1930 so I thought it would be a good time to do this. I’ve conducted polls with all of you fellow film lovers for some previous years of the Top Ten By Year Project; 1925, 1992, 1958, and 1978. It has been such a success, and is now an integral part of the project’s traditions.
So tell me (leave your ballots in the comments); what are your top films of 1930?
Order doesn’t factor in for results, but you are more than welcome submit them that way. If you’ve only seen a handful of films from 1930, don’t just list off what you’ve seen. I only want ballots with films you consider favorites. If that means it’s only 1 or 2, that’s perfectly fine!
I repeat: I don’t want 10 for the sake of 10 or even 5 for the sake of 5. Only the ones you love.
You have a week to vote. Results will go up next week. The post will contain, as always, a breakdown of all votes by numbers and individuals. The top ten is always the least interesting part of the poll. Seeing what’s below, discovering films that have there of four votes, seeing what everyone voted for as an individual, that is where the worth of the poll comes in. The poll breakdowns are excellent resources for learning about new-to-you films.
