1930s in Film

The 30s on Film are, for me, mostly Universal Monsters and early Alfred Hitchcock with some great classic comedians and Frank Capra thrown in the mix. Here are the NonModern top 20:

20. “The Mummy” (1932) Karl Freund

19. “Dracula’s Daughter” (1936) Rowland V. Lee

18. “King Kong” (1933) Cooper & Shoedsack

17. “Son of Frankenstein” (1939) Lambert Hillyer

16. “Duck Soup” (1933) Leo McCarey

15. “It Happened One Night” (1934) Frank Capra

14. “Mr. Dees Goes to Town” (1936) Frank Capra

13. “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” (1939) Frank Capra

12. “Frankenstein” (1931) James Whale

11. “DrĂ¡cula” (1931) and Dracula (1931) Eduardo Arozamena and Tod Browning

10. Anything Hitchcock from the 30s
Mostly the three greats “The Lady Vanishes” (1939), “The 39 Steps” (1935), and “The Man Who Knew Too Much” (1934), but also some of the lesser gems like “Murder!” (1930), “Sabotage” (1936), and “Secret Agent” (1935). Even some that are stinkers by Hitch standards are entertaining: “Young and Innocent” (1938), “Number Seventeen” (1932), and “Jamaica Inn” 1939).

9. “Bringing Up Baby” (1938) Howard Hawks

8. “Lost Horizon” (1937) Frank Capra

7. “Stagecoach” (1939) John Ford

6. “Modern Times” (1936) Charlie Chaplin

5. “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935) James Whale

4. “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” (1937) Walt Disney, Producer

3. “City Lights” (1931) Charlie Chaplin

2. “The Wizard of Oz” (1939) Victor Fleming

1. “You Can’t Take It with You” (1938) Frank Capra
