The Weekly Discussion: The 40s in Cinema!
It’s that time again. For nine weeks now I have been polling you on the most influential film director of the various decades of the 20th century. Last week the poll was about the period of 1900-1909. The winner of that poll, with 6 votes, was Georges Méliès. This week’s poll is the last one before the big one… who was the most influential film director of the WHOLE TWENTIETH CENTURY, where the nominees will be the winners of all the prior polls.
This week’s poll, however, is about the roaring forties!
Thanks for voting. Also, while we’re here, I thought I’d issue the results of a poll I wrote last week: What is the furthest you are willing to travel to see one film? The winning result was 30 minutes to an hour, with six votes, followed closely by One Hour, with five.
Thanks for voting in this week’s poll again, and I look forward to issuing the final poll this time next week.
