1959 Alternate Oscars

My choices are noted with a ★. Historical Oscar winners are noted with a ✔.

That's some competition for best director, huh. Five of the greatest directors of all time, each turning in what might be the best movie of his career.

At one time or another, I've had three different movies — Some Like It Hot, Rio Bravo and finally North By Northwest — in the top slot. The Academy's choice, Ben-Hur, was no slouch either. A terrific epic, Ben-Hur features what I think is the best action sequence ever, the chariot race.

Vote well and live.
