Pre-1930s Hall of Fame

Tools    





𝒫𝓇𝑒-1930𝓈 𝐻𝒶𝓁𝓁 𝑜𝒻 𝐹𝒶𝓂𝑒

Easy-Peasy...just a fun little HoF to help support the upcoming MoFo pre-1930s Movie Countdown. I'm thinking this will be pretty small, so easy to do and of course anyone can join. Usually rules apply.

I'll post the movie nominations as they come in, so that way everyone can see what the movies are, before joining. The goal is to get some exposure for some great pre-30s films that might hopefully make the countdown, and as always to have fun!
Deadline: July 22nd

Good to see this happening, in all likelihood I'll probably sit and watch from the sidelines (like I normally do) but if the nominations are tempting enough and all available to me with my usual limited resources I might just be tempted to join in the fun.

Almost famous for having nailed Madonna once



Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I may go with a blind grab as well since I am looking to broaden my viewing.
Gimme a day or so, and I'll shoot one over to you.
THANKS for setting this up, CR!

I'll pick something from my watchlist rather than something I've already seen.
I'm probably going with a blind nom too, that way I can see more pre 30 films for the countdown.



Possibility of that, if there are not many members and every one is cool with it. I'm cool with it
I've got my list of 25-- just fine-tuning it. Will send it along soon....

Cool, but don't send it to me, if that's what you meant. Chyp is the big cheese in charge of the Pre 30s MoFo Countdown. I'm just doing an HoF based on the same decades.



I'd love to join but it would honestly put way too much on my plate. Still 2 Kubrick's, 7 Sci Fis and 10 19th HOF noms.
Bummer, it would have been cool if you could have joined.



The only one I've seen is Sherlock Jr. and I've seen it twice. Wasn't it nominated in the Silent Era HoF? Anyway, the others all look excellent and The Man Who Laughs was already on my watchlist.

Quite so. I've received a private reprimand.. Chypmunk will recieve my list tout de suite. I do admit to a confusion to the distinction between a countdown and an HOF.

No worries, it can be HOFally confusing at first
The deadline for lists for the countdown is not until early October so you can tinker a while longer should you wish.

Sherlock Jr. has now been nominated in 5 different Hofs.
This HoF of course and...

Classic Comedy HoF - Alexwilder DQ
Silent Era Hof - Swan DQ
Comedy HoF - Swan DQ
HoF 2 - Daniel M


I've seen The Man Who Laughs it's a good one.

No worries. What we're doing on this thread is a Hall of Fame movie watching and ranking, just like you did in the Classic Comedy Hof (where you nominated two Cary Grant films). This Pre 1930s Hall of Fame (HoF) hasn't started yet, would you like to join?
