Nuwan Sen's Top10

* 1953 :  Sixty years ago, a young princess was crowned the Queen of Great Britain, i.e. the reining Queen Elizabeth II. The same year Roman Holiday (1953) was released. Starring Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck, Roman Holiday, was a story about a young princess torn between her love for a commoner and her royal duties. Hepburn’s debut performance won her an Oscar.

* 1939 : The Second World War broke out in Europe, and Gone With The Wind (1939), a movie set during the American Civil War, one of the first shot in ‘Technicolor’, was released in the United States. It garnered ten Oscars, including one for Hattie McDaniel (for Best Supporting Actress) for her portrayal of Mammy, making her the first black American to win an Oscar.
