Spector Revisits Hollywood’s Greatest Year

In 2014, inspired by critics celebrating the 75th anniversary of 1939, “Hollywood’s Greatest Year,” Adam Spector looked at that year and others from the studio era that featured a strong lineup. Seven years later, he went back to this article for another project.

“While most of it still holds up, I made some revisions, most notably adding another year – 1950. I also grouped my films into “Classics” and “Other Notable Films.” For “Classics” I returned to the British critic Derek Malcom’s standard (often cited by Roger Ebert) – films for which I would be upset if I could never see them again.” Check them out in Adam Spector’s somewhat new Adam’s Rib column
