Actually two are: “Father Goose” and “Operation Petticoat”. Just because they are comedies doesn’t mean that they can be set in WW2.

Those first three make this a tough choice but I'll probably go with 'Schindler's.' As you may remember, ElMo, I think Spielberg often fails to fulfill his formidable talent but I think that this is a great film; he still falls into easy sentimentality sometimes but it nonetheless is a very powerful film. It will probably get a whole lot of votes, though, so I might actually choose the vote-underdog of those first three. 

I don't know if you saw my note on the thread for your poll of films with two-letter titles but, if not, I had, right around the same time, started a poll of films with three-letter titles, an idea that came to me after seeing the poll suggestion of Spanish language films that included 'XXY,' a film which I liked a lot. I finished the list but before I post anything, I wanted to check with you: since you posted your two-letter titles poll first, if you want to make a poll of three-letter titles, I will happily delete mine and give you any movie titles that I have. Just let me know; I'll check back here occasionally. (If you don't want to make that one, I'll certainly provide a link to your poll on mine.)

Oh, I love the title of this poll, btw. : )

Torpedo Run (1958)
Battleground (1949) Technically, that is a one word title that used a compound word as it’s title. But since you had listed another one word title using a compound word, “Downfall”, I guess “Battleground” counts too.
