Greenbriar Picture Show's top films seen in 2010

A blog that I like that I only discovered for the first time this year is the Greenbriar Picture Shows. Great spot to go and read about classic film. Read a great couple posts about Parmount's Vistavistion process there just recently(right around Christmas). I also just saw a post there comparing IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT to DAWN OF THE DEAD, (pretty cool). John McElwee, the man behind this excellent site, was gracious enough to provide me with his 10 favorites seen this past year. Most them are available through Warner Archive if you'd care to track any of them down. I've seen all of none of them and am thoroughly intrigued:



Rio Rita(1929; Luther Reed)





Betrayed(1954; Gottfried Reinhardt)




Cash On Demand(1961; Quentin Lawrence)






Peach-O-Reno(1931; William A. Seiter)






Swingin' On a Rainbow(1945; William Beaudine)





The Round-Up(1920; George Melford)





Are You Listening?(1932; Harry Beaumont)





A Lady Without Passport(1950; Joseph H. Lewis)







The System(1953; Lewis Seiler)






Welcome, Stranger(1947; Elliott Nugent)

PEACH O'RENO would have made my list last year (I saw it for the first time in 2009). Good, funny movie. RIO RITA was Wheeler and Woolsey's first.
