Films of the Early 20th Century: The Results (2021 edition)

Post by Petri »

Welcome to the final part of the 18xx–1949 film poll, The Results! In total, 197 movies have been listed by the forum members. Their votes have resulted in a final ranking.

The 11 voters in the final were (number of ranked movies):

BleuPanda (150)
bonnielaurel (186)
Greg (188)
Michel (139)
Miguel (102)
mileswide (10)
Petri (157)
Shüttelbirne (137)
Stone37 (102)
The_Claw (191)
whuntva (105)


To calculate the score for each film, I have used the same formula as in my previous film polls, first I use the familiar formula 2100/(i+20), where i is the rank of the movie on the ballot. If a voter hasn't seen or ranked a film, that film will receive the score for the average film on that person's ballot (for instance, if a person has ranked 50 films, the remaining films will receive the score for the rank of #25.5). Then I add the correction factor which takes into account the number of movies voter have seen. The more movies voter has voted the closer the correction factor is to one. (I draw a diagram to explain the factor but couldn't add the picture here). For Example #1 movie voted by The_Claw (seen 191 movies) gets 99,004 points from The_Claw and #1 movie of mileswide (seen 10 movies) gets 30,5498 from mileswide (the bottom movies by them get 9,854 points (The_Claw’s #191) and 21,385 (mileswide’s #10).

I also counted the alternative rank for all movies (quontity after the traditional rank). I have used that before. In the alternative rank basically I count 197 different lists. Only the ones who have seen a movie decide its rank. I explain this method better with an example movie (check the link: http://www.acclaimedmusic.net/forums/vi ... 50#p129850

I don’t list fans and haters but you can see everybody’s rank for every movie they have seen (from the biggest fan to the biggest hater)

Thanks to everybody who has participated in this poll!
And special thanks to bonnielaurel who gathered the quotes!

Brief Encounter was the only movie seen by every 11 voter (who would have guessed that). 10 voters saw 44 movies (most of them were movies that everyone else but mileswide has seen). El Dorado and Cœur fidèle (The Faithful Heart) were the ones seen by only one voter (Greg). I'm happy that bonnielaurel managed to see my wild card nomination (Levoton Veri [Restlees Blood]). :)

1 movie seen by all 11 voters

:D Or from the rarely seen extended cut in which every one watches the performance till the end (yeah it's Olivier :whistle: ). I'll change the picture.

Years:
1939–1941 gained the most points (that was not a surprise when #14 of the era was #34 in the final).
The dominance can be seen even better when comparing sum of ranks (#1 = 1 points, #197= 197 points). Less points the better (minimum would be 120 points = 1 + 2 + 3 + …. + 14 + 15)
1939–1941 has 645 points and the second smallest points is 1129 (1946-1947). I excluded wild card nominations so every era has 15 movies.

Era | Points | Sum of ranks
1939–1941 | 5094,15 points | 645 sum of ranks
1948–1949 | 4423,13 points | 1249 sum of ranks
1927–1929 | 4409,44 points | 1317 sum of ranks
1930–1932 | 4343,72 points | 1518 sum of ranks
1946–1947 | 4272,77 points | 1129 sum of ranks
1942–1943 | 4267,09 points | 1656 sum of ranks
1924–1926 | 4256,18 points | 1408 sum of ranks
1944–1945 | 4099,31 points | 1451 sum of ranks
1936–1938 | 4088,11 points | 1690 sum of ranks
1933–1935 | 3951,07 points | 1380 sum of ranks
1921–1923 | 3767,29 points | 1735 sum of ranks
1900–1920 | 3568,34 points | 2138 sum of ranks

Thanks for the work, Petri! No major surprises, but an excellent opportunity to dust off those ckassics. It's funny how The Birth of a Nation still managed to qualify, just to finish last again. Big leap forward for His Girl Friday.

I finally watched Laura this weekend and absolutely loved it, so I probably could have bumped it from that low rank if I watched sooner...
