1950s movies marathon – Best of 1953

Compared to 1952, 1953 was an excellent year for movies. Some of them were even in widescreen and stereo, technologies one starts to miss after watching little but old movies for a couple of years.

Revenge of the nerds

The War of the Worlds

The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms

Dangerous adults

Pickup on South Street 

The Wages of Fear

Ladies and “ladies”

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

.. and best of the best, also uncategorizable: 

Stalag 17

Next up: 1954, with 414 movies begging for attention, which may make you wonder how much time I actually spend on this marathon.  Surprisingly little, but it helps not to have a TV.

    My recommendations for 1954: Seven Samurai, The Caine Mutiny, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The High and the Mighty, Them and Creature from the Black Lagoon. In no particular order.
