Christopher. Somewhere along above, it was posited that downer movies didn't win Oscars. All's Quiet on the Western Front won Best Picture, I think in 1930, and ends with the hero getting killed by a sniper. That's about as downer as I can think of.

Ah. We were talking about George Takei, and I didn't see the connection (because there was none!). But yes, All's Quiet is especially remarkable for being a downer so early in movie history.
