The Year in Review

1959 was clearly a great year for film with several which could be contenders for the top spot.


My Top Picks

  1. Ben Hur:
  2. The Mouse that Roared: This is a very funny film to watch and it stars the first doctor, William Hartnell (and of course, Peter Sellers is amazing in it).
  3. The Diary of Anne Frank
  4. North by Northwest
