An interesting mix, nice to see One Week in there.

Some of those I could've sworn I'd seen on previous years' lists.
Not a big fan of Flower Drum Song, and I could name other noirs I'd rather see than The Killers. But you can add me to the roll of those pleased to see One Week, one of Keaton's most hilarious short subjects. I howled the first time I saw it.
