"Beauty and the Beast" and "JFK" were neck and neck among SUNDIAL readers in balloting for best picture of 1991. "Bugsy," the choice of many film critics, was a distant also-ran in the SUNDIAL sample.
The Disney animated film, the first of its kind ever nominated for best picture, led with 124 votes, with "JFK" breathing down its neck with 122. "The Silence of the Lambs" was a close third with 119 votes.
But Barry Levinson's gangster movie "Bugsy," starring Warren Beatty, received only 30 votes, and "The Prince of Tides" picked up just 29.
