Re: 50th Is "The Day Of The Doctor" (And Is 75 Minutes)

Movies that run 75 minutes include Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, Battleship Potemkin, and The Ox-Bow Incident. Frankenstein and The Invisible Man are 71 minutes. The Nightmare Before Christmas is 76 minutes. Primer is 77 minutes. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and The Triplets of Belleville are 78 minutes. Hitchcock's Rope, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Death Race 2000 are 80 minutes. Army of Darkness, Toy Story, and Run Lola Run are 81 minutes. Many classic Disney movies are around 75 minutes give or take.

So 75 minutes is feature length in the sense that 50,000 words is novel length -- it's toward the low end of the spectrum, but it definitely qualifies.
