PUNQ's -- Top-300 -- 1934

------------------------------------------

1934, the year the censores took over Hollywood (July 1934) resulting in the end of the cool pre-code era and things becoming more safe the next 20 years or so. French film was very much alive (Les misérables; L'Atalante; Amok). The year of well written comedies (The Thin Man; It Happened One Night; Murder at the Vanities; The Merry Widow; Twentieth Century). Hitchcock finally found his sound groove with The Man Who Knew Too Much. Little Shirley Temple grew into a big star. "Dracula" Bela Lugosi met for the first time "Frankenstein" Boris Karloff in The Black Cat. And to top off a strong year Josef von Sternberg & Marlene Dietrich came with the super visual The Scarlet Empress....
