26. Charlotte's Web (1973)
A favorite as a kid, but pretty basic all around.

25. Don't Look Now (1973)
Well, look for a little while then when you tired of the story you can look away, as I did.

People who added this item 248  Average listal rating (130 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.1 
23. The Way We Were (1973)
Streisand is nearly unwatchable in anything she does. What saves this is the fact that she really works for this character and it may be the only that has ever made sense for her.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 880  Average listal rating (602 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.7 
22. Enter the Dragon (1973)
And exit Bruce Lee

20. Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973)
No doubt the music is the highlight but I wish the story and the characters could come close.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 357  Average listal rating (221 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.2 
19. Paper Moon (1973)
The O'Neals prove to be an entertaining team. Going into it I wasn't expecting it to be black and white, but it definitely works.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 58  Average listal rating (27 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
18. Bang the Drum Slowly (1973)
A classic Baseball film with DeNiro delivering an understated performance.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 707  Average listal rating (435 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
17. Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972)
I've read into this film, after watching, and still don't understand the overwhelming praise. I respect it and dig what's going on, psychologically, and that fucking horse; but it's not a film I love and will praise... at least not yet, it could happen.
Stehako's rating:

16. Breezy (1973)
Eastwood changes pace with this breezy, beautiful love story about ageism and hippyism.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 237  Average listal rating (131 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.8 
15. F for Fake (1973)

People who added this item 668  Average listal rating (410 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.3 
14. Sleeper (1973)
One of my favorite Woody Allen movies WITH him in it. I didn't mind him too much in this and enjoyed a lot of the subtle humor.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 244  Average listal rating (135 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 7.6 
13. The Last Detail (1973)
Jack is clearly the entertainer of the decade, because this is one of his lesser-known films and it's still solid and would be more noteworthy for anyone else.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 721  Average listal rating (484 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.1 
12. Papillon (1973)


McQueen and Hoffman deliver memorable performances in this well-made torturous prison film.
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 382  Average listal rating (282 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.2 
11. Magnum Force (1973)
Vigilantes and dirty Harries
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 401  Average listal rating (235 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating 7.7 
10. The Long Goodbye (1973)
An Altman movie not in the typical Altman format. One of my favorite Elliot Gould performances and it features a cameo of Arnold!
Stehako's rating:

People who added this item 622  Average listal rating (412 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 6.8 
9. Live and Let Die (1973)
This first Bond with Roger Moore as Agent 007 and it features a very beautiful young Jane Seymour.

8. Last Tango in Paris (1972)
Sales of butter naturally went up after this movie.

Terrence Malick's first feature

6. American Graffiti (1973)


One of the first movies to feature a great modern soundtrack and the movie that helped Lucas get to make 'Star Wars'

Some great classics that year as well as some I didn't care for, but overall I would say above the average.
