Best and Worst Best Pictures - Rotten Tomatoes

Did you know that five of the Best Picture winners are certified "rotten"? Three of those five are obscure films from the 1930s, but there are two "rotten" films which have won Best Picture since WW2: The Greatest Show on Earth and Out of Africa.

Those are the same two names I came up with years ago when I wrote a similar article about the weakest Oscar winners. (Disclaimer: I don't know where to place Chariots of Fire. It may belong with those two or it may not. I have tried to watch it exactly four times and have fallen asleep each time. I don't plan to try again. That is a true story.)
