Contest: Answers and Winner

Here are the answers to the “guess the movie” contest from last week. (Click here if you didn’t have a chance to see the banner.)

Most of the films were selected because I like them and/or because they’re historic, and also because most are handmade and/or regional films. There are some studio films, too. The Griffith and Chaplin movies, for example, are United Artists pictures… but then they started UA so they could have control over their work. Anyway, if you’re scratching your head wondering about the inclusion of one (or more than one), post a comment and I’ll reply with my justification.

The winner of the contest is Chris Cagle.
