In this study group we will explore films that famous directors and actors have cited as their own best films, often ones that would not be chosen by others. For example, many critics pick Orson Welles' film, Citizen Kane, as his best film; yet Welles identified Chimes at Midnight as his most masterful movie. Vivien Leigh won Best Actress Oscars for Gone With the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire, but she considered her best film to be Waterloo Bridge. Leo McCarey won Best Director Oscars for The Bells of St. Mary's and Going My Way, but he thought his best film was Make Way for Tomorrow which Orson Welles said would make a stone cry. Other examples of directors' picks include: Alfred Hitchcock, Shadow of a Doubt; Howard Hawks, Scarface; Sam Peckinpah, The Ballad of Cable Hogue; Woody Allen, Match Point; Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood; Billy Wilder, The Apartment; and Monty Python, Life of Brian. Actors to be discussed include: Henry Fonda, 12 Angry Men; Clark Gable, Mutiny on the Bounty; James Stewart, Harvey; John Wayne, The Quiet Man; and Paul Newman, Slap Shot.
