FAVORITE FILM BY YEAR
1960 Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock)
runner up: The Apartment (Billy Wilder)
1961 West Side Story (Robert Wise)

1962 The Manchurian Candidate (John Frankenheimer)
runner up: Lawrence of Arabia (David Lean)
1963 Hud (Martin Ritt)
runner up: Federico Fellni's 8 1/2 (Federico Fellini).
1964 My Fair Lady (George Cukor)
runner up: Mary Poppins (Robert Stevenson)
1965 The Sound of Music (Robert Wise)
runner up: Darling (John Schlesinger) or Doctor Zhivago (David Lean)... let's just say JULIE CHRISTIE.
1966 Umbrellas of Cherbourg (Jacques Demy)
runner up: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (Mike Nichols).
1967 Persona (Ingmar Bergman)
give or take: Bonnie & Clyde (Arthur Penn). They're only two of the greatest movies of all time.
1968 Rosemary's Baby (Roman Polanski)
in no particular order: Rachel Rachel (Paul Newman), Funny Girl (William Wyler), Oliver! (Carol Reed), 2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick)
1969 The Shoot Horses, Don't They (Sydney Pollack)
give or take Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (Paul Mazursky) which is far too underappreciated.
