Downgrade all you want. I will continue to adore and watch this excellent film. Have fun storming the castle or whatever.
But the 50s or 60s... a few stinkers if you look really hard, but apart from that you can randomly pick any film and it'll be at the very least satisfying. Even the mass-produced studio stuff was so much better technically, artistically, and idea-wise than contemporary mass-produced studio stuff.
It's still on the roll, but if we're to be super strict, they were at the bloody foreground in the whole world in the 50s or 60s. The US and even France were left far behind. In the 70s, studios started having monetary problems so they started producing lots of trash. This trash was amazing and entertaining and occasionally artistic plus art films still were made including within the Art Theatre Guilt, but it wasn't the same 50s & 60s thing where major studios would produce absolute all-time masterpieces.

Dont forget the 70s too! Heck, Japan was on quite the roll for such a long time.
There are certain films I wouldn't mind downgrading, even all the way to 1/10. Even though they don't deserve such a low rating, I have no inhibitions that would stop me from doing so apart from common sense. Then, there's the rest - I just can't bring myself to downgrade them. There's something that stops me..

I may be a traditionalist... I am certainly not a revolutionary, but I am in the mood for LaLa Land...
