    1- The Panic Room
    2- Fight Club
    3- Alien 3
    4- Gone Girl
    5- Zodiac
    6- Se7en
    7- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
    8- Millennium
    9- The Social Network

    Thanks for clarifying this for me @Karin Schill. I just wanted to know because his videos are what I admire of him the most, and also because "Mindhunter" is a very good show directed by him. Not my favorite one though.

    Okay so next up I thought we'd list movies by this classic star:

    spencer-tracy_bj264.jpg

    Spencer Bonaventure Tracy was an American actor. He was born on 5th April, 1900 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. He grew up with a four year older brother and had some difficulty to concentrate at school. He was of Irish-English descent.

    At the age of 18 he went into the Navy and went to training in Chicago. But the first world war ended before he had to go into battle. He attended Ripon college with the intention to study medicine but during his first year there he did a stage play and became bitten by the theatre bug. He won a scholarship to attend American Academy of Dramatic Art in New York City and transferred to that school in 1922. Tracy made his debut on Broadway during this year. He graduated a year later and joined a theater company. He worked with theatre until 1930 when he was discovered by director John Ford who offered him a role in a movie. His movie debut came with Up the River (1930).

    Spencer Tracy was a contract player for FOX and MGM. He gained critical acclaim. He won two Best Actor Academy Awards for the movies Captain Courageous (1938) and Boy Town (1939). He also won a Golden Globes and a number of other prestigious awards.

    Spencer Tracy worked within films for almost 4 decades before he died in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, USA on 10th June, 1967. He was 67 years old. All together he made 76 movies for the big screen. But which one is your favorite?

    Totals in: July.

    1. Father of the Bride
    2. Father's Little Dividend

    A great classic actor and one of my late dad´s favorites. Here are my choices:

    1- Guess Who´s Coming to Dinner (1967)
    2- Father of the Bride (1950)
    3- Adam´s Rib (1949)
    4- Judgment at Nuremberg (1961)
    5- Woman of the Year (1942)
    6- Boys Town (1938)
    7- Fury (1936)
    8- State of the Union (1948)
    9- Bad Day at Black Rock (1955)
    10- Keeper of the Flame (1942)

    No need to say that, even being an amazing actor himself, his performances opposite Katharine Hepburn became instantly memorable. The titles mentioned above did not only feature impressive acting work from him, but also tackled issues of the times (of any times) in a way still valid today: racism, domestic violence, feminism, historical genocide, political manipulation, hidden fascism, extreme ways of doing justice...and all that in only 10 films!

    Don´t worry @Karin Schill! Joan Crawford would have omitted "Vogue" completely...I assume.

    Though, if alive, sure Joan would have followed Madge´s sense of fashion...
