Janet Gaynor Ranked List


In 2006, UCLA celebrated Janet Gaynor's 100th birthday by having a pretty decent retrospective of her films. The event kicked off on April 6, 2006 at the Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood, CA. Janet's widower, Paul Gregory, was there with her son, Robin and they reminisced about her.

The rest of the screenings were at UCLA (before the bulk of their screenings were moved to the Hammer Museum). A lot of the films were rarely screened and have few votes on IMDB.

Note: My rankings have nothing to do with how good the movie was or how acclaimed it is, but how much I enjoyed the film.
