Doubling the Canon
11th Round Update: 1950-1974

(March 3 2007 - 33 participants)

The majority of these titles were nominated during our first ten rounds and were rated highly (3.0+) but failed to receive the required 5 votes.  For this 11th round we were each allowed to select five additional films - those titles are marked in red.  As before titles which fail to attract at least five votes will be held over.  The holdover round will be held when the list is revisited in 2008.
