Mostly excellent choices, though I could have done without "Be Italian" winning Best Adapted Song.

I'm delighted to see that one of the two films I most wanted to see make the Hall of Fame, Black Narcissus, has at last been added, but where is Make Way for Tomorrow?

The Criterion Edition releases on the 22nd so there should be no excuses next year about not having seen it once everyone has access to it.

I'm also happy to see Claudette Colbert, Irene Dunne, William Holden, Fredric March, F.W. Murnau and Franz Waxman added to the induced persons lists.

Huh.

Well, it's a solid combination of foregone conclusions and pretty solid alternative choices . Can't really complain.
