Okay, here is the short reference form for what I did last year. 2010 doesn't seem to compare to previous anniversary years, however, the awesomeness factor of years before 1950 rests most greatly in the BIRTHS section. Maybe the future (gulp! Such as it may be - and it seems a particularly bad time to be bringing tender innocents into this Thunder of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and I Don't Mean the Movies world) will be far kinder than it seems we can reasonably expect just now, and those who take their first breath in 2010 will twinkle as bright as their screen forebears of the nought-end years!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1990_in_film seems like just a few years ago to me!
