6. A Farewell to Arms (1957)

Charles Vidor

1957

David O. Selznick's final production was this glossy version of Ernest Hemingway's great story of war-torn romance. A troubled production and a box-office disaster, the film remains interesting as an example of Hollywood excess and as a final, failed effort from one of the industry's most significant producers. Selznick's demanding, hands-on management style resulted in Charles Vidor replacing original director John Huston, who departed after one too many arguments with his producer. Far more lavish and melodramatic than Frank Borzage's 1932 classic. Rock Hudson and Jennifer Jones star, with neorealist film master Vittorio De Sica (a prolific actor as well as a director) in an Academy Award-nominated supporting role.

The battle ground was a hellish endurance test, where soldiers had to contend not only with bombings and gunfire, but with poison gas, rats and widespread disease.

Joris Ivens

1937-39

Two landmark documentaries made by the pioneering Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens after he came to the U.S. in the mid-1930s. The Spanish Earth (1937) is an unsettling examination of the political and social causes of the Spanish Civil War. Ernest Hemingway wrote the commentary and also provided the narration when Orson Welles' voice was deemed "too beautiful" for the film. The Four Hundred Million (1939) is an angry denunciation of the Japanese invasion of China, backed by the narration of Fredric March. It is a film that conveys the intensity, fear, misery and courage of war.

1. The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

James Algar/Clyde Geronimi/Jack Kinney

1949

Released initially together, and later as separate "mini-features," these two beautifully animated works represent the Disney cartoon style at its highest level. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a highly entertaining (and quite spooky) adaptation of Washington Irving's tale of meek schoolteacher Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. Bing Crosby is the narrator and also sings some fun tunes accompanied by the Rhythmaires. Next is a wonderfully whimsical version of Kenneth Grahame's children's classic, The Wind in the Willows, with Basil Rathbone narrating the story of Mr. Toad and friends.

9. Sleepy Hollow

Tim Burton

1999

Boasting fantastic sets, costumes and cinematography, Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow is a visual delight. Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is greatly altered in this version, changing Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) from a cowardly schoolteacher to a police constable who comically tries to mask his fear as he investigates a series of gruesome murders, which the locals attribute to the fearsome Headless Horseman. With Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson, Jeffrey Jones, Michael Gambon and Christopher Walken
