I will be presumptuous and list the two "unusual" picks that you had in the 1-5 range from our original poll. They were NIGHT OF THE HUNTER and ON THE WATERFRONT. Those were unorthodox picks, but are also very intriguing in their expansion of the ever-elusive "what is noir" discussion.
If you give the OK, I'll be happy to post the full ballot here, or (if you prefer) email it to you. IMO it was a damned fine ballot in 2005, and still very worthy in 2017-18, particularly if we are, as you note, "only comparing...domestic noir films." Which is really all we can do in terms of our old Top 25 poll.
I wonder, though, if you feel up to some version of my request concerning a discussion/ranking of the ten films in question that moved on/off the Top 25 as a result of the revision effort. I list them again for your convenience:
IN: The Big Combo, Act of Violence, Sweet Smell of Success, Vertigo, Pickup on South Street
OUT: The Narrow Margin, The Big Heat, Born to Kill, The Postman Always Rings Twice, Murder My Sweet
To try to address the matter of how THE KILLERS dropped down and TOUCH OF EVIL and KISS ME DEADLY rose, I think this has to do with the small sample size of participants in the revision exercise. A larger group might well have mitigated the amount of change that occurred by responding as you have and indicating that THE KILLERS ranking was just fine where it was. A combination of factors, as explained in my original post, brought forth revisions that elevated 50s noirs. Those individuals who participated turned out to be persons whose perspective on THE KILLERS was less favorable than the rest of the original voting population. Of those folks, my original vote (in the 6-10 range) was the highest of that sub-group.
