Top Movies - 1962

With all the recent hoopla regarding the 50th anniversary of To Kill a Mockingbird you might be wondering what the top movies were in 1962.  According to Films 101, here are the top 5:

1.  Lawrence of Arabia - with Peter O'Toole, worth watching again
2.  Jules and Jim - French movie that you probably didn't see
3.  The Manchurian Candidate - kind of weird brainwashing of a political candidate
4.  To Kill a Mockingbird - the one that has eternal impact
5.  Knife in the Water - Roman Polanski, need more be said?

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, a great western, was up next, just outside of the top 5.  Go to Wikipedia for more information on any of these films including plot lines, actors, etc.  (For films like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy that are quite confusing, Wikipedia can straighten you out!)
