1971 Alternate Oscars

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

Two of the best movies of the year — Brian's Song and Steven Spielberg's Duel — were actually made for television. But both were also given world-wide theatrical releases, and while that doesn't make them Oscar eligible, it makes them alternate Oscar eligible. Thus, their presence here.

Hey, I don't make the rules, I just live by them. Direct all complaints to the blog-typing sock monkey.

I’m not a big fan of Willy Wonka, Dirty Haary and Klute. Thus, my own list has a place for Europeans movies as The Emigrants, Sacco and Vanzetti and King Lear.
