Movie recommendations from RAW

Don Siegel was a director and producer known particularly for the action-adventure films he directed. Thanks to Jesse Walker, who ran across an email exchange with Robert Anton Wilson dating back to 2005, I have RAW's ranking of top three Siegel films: (1) Charley Varrick, (2) Dirty Harry and (3) Coogan's Bluff in that order. (The formatting of the old email makes it difficult to read and there's no info besides the ranking, so I'm paraphrasing with Jesse's help).

RAW also liked the 1943 movie, Son of Dracula. 

Speaking of movie recommendations, Jesse has been continuing his lists of the best movies of 10 years ago, 20 years ago, etc. I'm no movie expert, but Jesse's pick for the best movie of 1953 feels like a surprise.

Here's a link to an updated version of it, in case someone would be interested:
