All three of those performances are things I really would like to see Hosenhaus. I concede that some years the performances I have to choose from aren't as deep as I would like. We need more old guys to participate!  Cheesy

I agree with joseph's choice in 1974. I hate to have to pick from 1973 where my favorite child performance would have been by a girl! Shocked
Nonetheless I'll go with Clay O'Brien in One Little Indian.

Yikes! I've got Greg Rowe in "Storm Boy" 1975 as my favourite. I guess I better put him in the right year, I'll edit him in to my post above as my favourite for the year (1976). I better do some thorough date checking, before I reveal anymore favourites.    Embarrassed

I'm still in.

Can't think of a single boy performance I've seen from 1973.

For 1972, I pick Chris and Martin Udvarnoky in The Other.

I haven't seen all the posts in this thread so I don't know if 1976 has been discussed, but I think my favorite boy actor for 1976, for nostalgic reasons, is Dan McCann in Kenny and Company.

Agreed!



There is also

but David Elliott only has a small part (that's a joke, I guess).

Glad to see you still in the game, joseph.  Smiley

I agree with your (and Hosenhaus') 1972 pick though I would also mention Kevin Hooks in Sounder and Scott Jacoby in No Place to Run.

1971 is the last of a string of weak years for me. My film list says I have seen 22 films from that year. The best performance I could come up with was Darel Glaser in Bless the Beasts and the Children.

K, I really like the film Kenny and Company. I think it is an extremely accurate time capsule of what it was like to be growing up in that era  (I like to think of myself as an expert on that topic  Roll Eyes ). Dan McCann, Michael Baldwin and little Jeff Roth's performances were memorable for me, but if you ever get a chance to see Storm Boy or Let the Balloon Go, I think we'll make a convert out of you.

I was going to ask if you'd seen Le Souffle au coeur, but I see that you gave it a very poor rating on the database. Absolutely brilliant performance by Benoît Ferreux in my opinion.

I've never seen Storm Boy or Let the Balloon Go but I hope someday I will get to. I'm sure they must be good.

You are probably right joseph that conventional wisdom will support Benoit Ferreux, that just wasn't a performance I connected with.

Hosenhaus, I have seen both of your suggestions as well. Mark Lester will probably not get a vote from me for best performance in any year, although I have seen nearly all of his films (maybe he'd be a favorite rather than a best  Undecided ) and I considered Lucien John Roeg's contribution to Walkabout to be less substantial than his counterparts.
To somewhat close out our survey of 1971, the other performances I could have considered that haven't been mentioned were Kim Burfield in Hero, Mark Lester in Black Beauty and Who Slew Auntie Roo, Lee H Montgomery in the Million Dollar Duck, Jacques Gagnon in Mon oncle Antoine, Roy Snart in Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Peter Ostrum in Willy Wonka. I'm nots ure who I would have selected as runnerup in that lot.

I'm also amending my 2008 pick to Asa Butterfield in The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. His talent was used to great effect in that film.
