    Are these sentences correct:
    1-This is the list of the best films in the Fifties.
    2-This is the list of the best films of the Fifties.

    The first one is incorrect. (You could say: "This is a list of the best films made in the Fifties.") The second one makes sense only if there is only one such list. Try:


    • This is a list of the best films of the Fifties.
