For me the greatest year for cinema was 1969.

I don't wholly disagree but on the other hand I don't particularly care.

Three movies in my top thirty or so are from 1962, for what it's worth.

Their only going by three films for each year?

Shouldn't Hollywood's Golden Year have more titles than that?


2007, Hollywood's Golden Year.

Evidence?

The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford

No Country For Old Men

There Will Be Blood

See what I did there?

America produced so quality movies in the 50s, I'd take almost any year from that decade over any other.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

'39 also had Stagecoach, Wuthering Heights, Gunga Din, Ninotchka, Jesse James, Goodbye Mr. Chips, Young Mr. Lincoln, The Four Feathers, Drums Along the Mohawk, Of Mice and Men, Babes in Arms, Another Thin Man...etc.

So I'd say there's a pretty good case to be made here.

Those aren't represented in the article.
Just going by their logic.
