You may remember that at the beginning of the year I participated in the Classic Movie History Project blogathon, covering the year 1937. While crafting that post, I realized just how many great films were released in 1937. It’s not the first year that comes to mind when we think of Hollywood’s greatest, but it certainly should be counted among them! And I’ve been wanting to make more of these “Marathon” lists, so what better way to bring the series back than to take a look at the great Hollywood year of 1937?
The following is a list of 24 hours worth of 1937-released viewing!
The Awful Truth – 90 minutes
Black Legion – 83 minutes
Breakfast for Two – 67 minutes
In Old Chicago – 96 minutes
It’s Love I’m After – 87 minutes
La grande illusion – 117 minutes
Lost Horizon – 132 minutes
Nothing Sacred – 75 minutes
Shall We Dance – 116 minutes
Stage Door – 92 minutes
Stella Dallas – 106 minutes
Topper – 95 minutes
True Confession – 85 minutes
You Only Live Once – 86 minutes
Young and Innocent – 83 minutes
This playlist of 15 films adds up to 1,410 minutes or 23.5 hours, leaving you half an hour for a little catnap!
