Wow, it’s getting really tough. Round 3 had 33 participants, 1 tie, and 3 winners by a single vote:
- Out of the Past beat The Maltese Falcon by a single vote.
- Night and the City beat Touch of Evil by a single vote.
- The Killers beat The Big Heat by a single vote.
- Murder, My Sweet tied with Laura.
A few films got soundly trounced:
- Stanwyck over Robinson in Double Indemnity (26 to 7)
- Detour over Border Incident (22 to 6 with 5 abstaining)
- Sunset Boulevard over Strangers on a Train (23 to 10)
Because of the tie, we have one two many films to vote on, so I’m giving Double Indemnity a bye for this round, and I’m not pitting Murder, My Sweet against Laura this time. On to ROUND 4! (And thanks as always for participating.)
