It's in the IMDb top 250, which I personally find ridiculous, but most seem to agree with the view that this is a film classic (and it is, strictly speaking), but it just doesn't work for me.
The Rodent
His underdog story is an absolute masterpiece in simplicity.
Frightened Inmate No. 2
These movies are completely different, but I find Gray's much more interesting. This also probably had of the worst romances I've ever seen.
