Schedule for 1931

Coming off the weakest year of the project so far, there appears to be a lot of promise for 1931. There are several entries by directors who have dominated my previous top 10's, such as Josef von Sternberg, Fritz Lang, Frank Borzage, King Vidor, and FW Murnau. We also get one of Chaplin's most notable films, not to mention the first appearances of Yasujiro Ozu, Frank Capra, James Whale.

Here is the full list, which is subject to change depending on availability...
