Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi and welcome to poll authoring. :)

I've only seen a few of these but, of those, I'd go with 'Show People.'

Well constructed poll, especially for what I think is your first suggested poll.

Thanks. Is it just me, or does this seems to be a difficult process? I've contributed thousands of reviews, trivia, corrections/additions, etc, but the poll seemed like a clunky process. Probably just me.

Hi. Yes fine. I was talking about the process of submitting a poll. Since I would never create a poll about super heroes, comic books, cartoons, or monsters, I realize any poll I create will likely never get "published."

The poll admins try to select a variety of topics, so there is still a possibility this could get published.
Please feel free to post more poll suggestions if you have other ideas, to increase your chances.

I have absolutely NO IDEA who she is, let alone have any proverbial horses in this race but I'm curious how you picked these 15 options out of her 49 total movie credits?  Esp. when Bride's Play only has 107 votes.  What was your methodology?

I picked well-known films that are mostly available on BLU/DVD and/or have been shown on TCM. Davies was a major star of the silent era and into the talkie era. WHEN KNIGHTHOOD WAS IN FLOWER and LITTLE OLD NEW YORK ranked among the biggest box-office films of 1922 and 1923 making her the #1 female box office star of those years. She was named "Queen of the Screen" by theater owners. THE PATSY and SHOW PEOPLE rank among the great silent comedies. Thanks for asking.

107 votes is not well-known. 3000 votes isn't well-known either and thats the highest one.

It's well known among fans of silent films. Serious film buffs vote for these films, not the comic book crowd. It's all relative. THE BRIDE'S PLAY was restored and shown for the first time in 95 years at Library of Congress in June 2017 and has aired on TCM. It's also available of DVD. It's well known among those likely to vote in a Marion Davies poll.

Fair. I just think a majority of the votes are going to come from people who have only seen 1 of the movies as a complete fluke, but I could be wrong.

Great poll. Will they ever run it? Love Marion Davies!

Thanks, but they'll never run it since it's not aimed at fans of comic books, cartoons, and super heroes. It was worth a shot anyway.

LOL... of course now that it's gone live, I see an error. I have LITTLE OLD NEW YORK listed twice. BEAUTY'S WORTH (1922) should have been the15th film. but THANKS for posting!

Option #13 still has zero votes. You can exchange it for another option, and the poll can be updated (re-pushed). You must make sure the other options in the list are in the same order as in the poll, and put the new option at #13 in the list.

I see that you added BEAUTY'S WORTH, but if you move it to 13th position the poll can be updated.

I've liked all the pictures of hers that I have seen - but if I had to choose just one, then that one is "Show People" because of the film itself and it's story line.
