A good selection. While not all great, they're all worth seeing. Vote your conscience, as our favorite Cory Chase fan once said

So many great pics. I don't care a lick for Harold Lloyd and Freshman is the one BD I own, so happy to give it another shot. But I voted for Master of the House and maybe I'll just re-watch every 20s Dreyer for the project.

I voted for Master as it's the only one I haven't seen, and it would finally give me impetus, but any of these are probably worth discussing

Freshman -- because it is the only film that features the adorable Jobyna Ralston. ;-)

It was a tie between Young Mr. Lincoln and Breaker Morant, so I removed my vote from the former, leaving us with our winner:Breaker Morant!

It's a Member of the Year vote!

Our current Member of the Year, Matrixschmatrix, has kindly agreed to curate a round (and on very unfair short notice, too. Thanks, matrix!).

This is admittedly a haphazard selection, but they're basically all movies I found myself liking far more than I expected and which I think would bear a fair amount of discussion in one aspect or another
