The Trouble with Harry (1955). It might be high-rated, but in Hitchcock's filmography it is rather underrated and often overlooked, despite setting some of the standards for modern black comedy and quite likely being an influence on "Twin Peaks"

That said, I also LOVE Charles Chaplin's movies.

Buster Keaton is a genius, especially regarding seemingly impossible in-camera stunt work.

This is the hardest choice to make. Too many great movies.

The best movie on the list is, The Great Dictator (1940). Most fun to watch: The Apartment (1960), It Happened One Night (1934), Roman Holiday (1953).

But I think my vote would go for The Apartment (1960) or It Happened One Night (1934)

'Very difficult choice, which makes for a good poll. 'Maybe 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' but I'm not sure. 'Good list of movies.

May I suggest just two edits?
For the title: 35 Earliest Comedies

For the intro, I'd just suggest adding a period at the end of the following sentence. 
This is a list of Earliest Comedy Feature Films With At Least 25000 Votes.

I'd suggest either you start the title with "Top", kind of feels awkward to have the title start with 35... I don't know.

Or how about a creative title?

A list of funny movies. I've not seen them all, but I would surely vote for one of them.
