TCMFF Top 5 Redux

A couple of weeks ago I posted my top 5 films that they are showing at this year's TCM Classic Film Festival (TCMFF). Well, it looks like I jumped the gun, because since then, the list has about doubled. At the risk of looking like a flake, I'm going redo my list, and that should keep me satisfied until the full schedule comes out. The films announced so far:

1776 (1972)
42nd Street (1933)
The Apartment (1960)
Apollo 13 (1995)
Calamity Jane (1953)
The Children's Hour (1961) 
The Cincinnati Kid (1965)
Doctor Zhivago (1965)
The Grim Game (1919)
Gunga Din (1939)
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939)
Lawrence of Arabia (1962)

  • A Corner in Wheat (1909) 
  • Suspense (1913)

Rififi (1955)
Roman Holiday (1953)
The Sound of Music (1965)
Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928)
The Wind and the Lion (1975)
Young Mr. Lincoln (1939)

My revised top 5:
5. Kind of a tossup between Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928) and Pinocchio (1940), but I have to make a choice, so I'm going with Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928)
4. Marriage Italian Style (1964)
3. Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
2. On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1969)
1. The Return of the Dream Machine: Hand-Cranked Films from 1902-1913 (2015)

  • A Trip to the Moon (1902)
  • The Great Train Robbery (1903)
  • A Corner in Wheat (1909) 
  • Suspense (1913)
