...are woeful omissions from this list. First Charlie Chaplin's films City Lights (1931) and Modern Times (1936) are regularly on the lists of greatest films ever made. The same goes for the Marx Brothers film Duck Soup (1933) and A Night At The Opera (1935). Also missing are truly great works like Fritz Lang's M (1931), Frank Capra's It Happened One Night (1936), Disney's Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Fred Astaire's Swing Time (1936). Finally, Dracula (1931) was so iconic (Lugosi was typecast and ended up a drug-addicted pauper in Hollywood-- Martin Landau won an Oscar portraying the elder Lugosi) and so successful that it opened the floodgate for other horror films such as the author's pick of Frankenstein which was released later in 1931.
