1. “Citizen Kane” 1941
Citizen Kane (1941) No doubt the greatest of American films, Orson Welles’s 1941 masterpiece made when he was only in his twenties, still seems fresh today.

Written by Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz and photographed by Gregg Toland using camera techniques that were revolutionary for their time.

3. “The Godfather” 1972
The quintessential film depiction of the Cosa Nostra or Mafia and how it came to attain and keep its power in the Italian-American community. Five families control the interests of the New York-New Jersey area in the World War II and post-war era; the most powerful one headed by Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando). The aging Don must transfer power to one of his three sons. He would prefer to give it to Sonny (James Cann), already in the business. But the position goes to Michael (Al Pacino), the youngest, the most even-tempered of the Corleone sons. The film centers around Michael’s adaptation to his new position, his handling of the violence that goes with the job and which is often leveled against his family, and his tragically aborted marriage to his Sicilian fiancee. Based on Mario Puzo’s novel.

Adapted from the book by Thomas Keneally and directed by Steven Spielberg, Schindler’s List is the story of Oskar Schindler (Liam Neeson), a Catholic war profiteer who risked his own life and eventually went bankrupt to save the lives of more than 1,000 Jews who worked in his factory. Filmed in Poland and entirely in black and white (except for two exceptions), Schindler’s List stands as one of the greatest films ever about the Holocaust during World War II. Ben Kingsley plays Itzhak Stern, Schindler’s accountant who helps Schindler walk the fine line with the Nazis that he needed to do in order to keep his business afloat. Ralph Fiennes plays Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi camp commandant who enjoys shooting Jews for target practice from his balcony.

10. “Singin’ In The Rain” 1952
One of the most charming Hollywood musicals ever made. Singin’ in the Rain takes a loving look at the end of the silent film era, and cinema’s rocky transition to sound. After years of honing his skills on the vaudeville stage, hoofer Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) has finally reached the top and become a swashbuckling star of the silver screen. Then the self-satisfied celebrity has his confidence shattered when ingenue Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds) dismisses film actors as “shadows” without substance. Of course, after getting over the insult, he falls hard for her — much to the consternation of his costar, the sexy, selfish Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen), who wants Don all to herself. But Don and Lina have more to worry about than romantic troubles. Sound’s come in, and, thanks to Lina’s shrill, shrieking voice, their first “talkie” has left the preview audience roaring with laughter. Now there’s only one way to save the movie and their careers: turn “The Dueling Cavalier” into a musical… with Kathy secretly dubbing in Lina’s lines. Musical numbers include: “Singin’ in the Rain,” “You Were Meant for Me,” “Make ‘Em Laugh,” and “All I Do Is Dream of You.”

18. “Psycho” 1960
Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins), the tremulous manager of a dilapidated roadside hotel and an amateur taxidermist with a predilection for birds, suffers under the domination of his “mother,” who rather savagely disapproves of fast women. Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) is the blond who impulsively steals $40,000 and has the bad luck to pick the Bates Motel while on the run. Generally considered the progenitor of the horror genre, and an unmitigated masterpiece. Based on the eponymous novel by Robert Bloch.

In its original release, which was before the MPAA, the film had no rating; It was rated M (for Mature Audiences) by the MPAA for a 1968 re-issue; then re-rated R in 1984. Psycho was the first Hollywood film to show an image of a toilet flushing.

20. “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” 1975
An award-winning cinematic adaptation of Ken Kesey’s celebrated novel that captures the rebellious and anarchic energy of the 1960s . Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson), a mental patient, bucks the rigid administrative system at the asylum where he’s incarcerated — and pays a high price for his nonconformity. McMurphy, who’s seemingly just a misdiagnosed free spirit, invigorates the previously zombified patients with his independent ways. But the authoritarian staff, led by the cold Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) cannot accept such behavior, and they’ll do whatever it takes to bring him down. Academy Award® Nominations: 9, including Best Supporting Actor–Brad Dourif.

22. “2001: A Space Odyssey” 1968
2001: A Space Odyssey is one of those films that defy a synopsis. With a plot that unfolds extremely slowly (yet encompasses a theme no less than the development of life itself), the film is of the sort that cannot be described but must be experienced. Following a prologue in pre-historic times, in which groups of apes learn to use tools and discover an unusual structure (a “monolith”), 21st century technology is displayed in painstaking detail (with the emphasis on space travel and exploration). In the year 2001, a team of astronauts is being sent to Jupiter to investigate the appearance of a radio transmission. When the on-board computer (HAL) begins to function strangely, this forces the surviving member of the team David Bowman (Keir Dullea) to abort the mission, and he is hurtled towards the unknown.

23. “The Maltese Falcon” 1941
Hard-drinking private eye Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) sleuths the backyard of San Francisco in search of an elusive black bird statuette while evading the setups of three disparate miscreants: the duplicitous Brigid (Mary Astor), the perfumed Mr. Cairo (Peter Lorre), and the scheming Fat Man. Huston’s brilliant directorial debut is aided by first-rate performances, excellent camera work, as well as the director’s acute attention to detail while shooting the film. Based on the crime novel by Dashiell Hammett. Previous versions of the story were filmed in 1931 (a.k.a. “Dangerous Female”) and in 1936 (as “Satan Met a Lady,” starring Bette Davis), and poorly redone in 1975 (“The Black Bird”).

24. “Raging Bull” 1980
Starring Robert De Niro in an Academy Award-winning performance, “Raging Bull” is one of the most unforgiving and unforgettable character studies ever filmed. The hero, Jake La Motta (De Niro), is an Italian-American, Bronx-born boxer plagued by the demons of his Catholic upbringing and by his insane machismo. Mentally and emotionally limited to the extreme, La Motta’s only mode of expression is violence, both in the ring and out. “Raging Bull” chronicles the downward spiral of La Motta’s life, as his inability to control his brutal rage destroys his marriage, his relationship with his brother (Joe Pesci) and, eventually, his career.

26. “Dr. Strangelove” 1964
Stanley Kubrick’s classic black comedy about nuclear holocaust and an out-of-control armed forces. A mad Air Force general, convinced that the Russians have found a unique means of poisoning the American water supply, sends forth a plane to drop nuclear bombs on the Soviet Union. Pity that no one knows the code to bring it back. Exacerbating the problem: the “doomsday machine,” a new Russian weapon programmed to blow up earth in the event of an attack. And no one knows how to stop that, either. As the American plane, piloted by a gung-ho, good-old-boy Texan, nears its target, pandemonium breaks out in the war room as the hapless, hopeless President, a megalomaniac scientist, and a randy, macho general, struggle fruitlessly over what to do — or whether to do anything at all.

Based on the true-life exploits of the notorious Depression-era bank robbers Bonnie Parker (Faye Dunaway) and Clyde Barrow (Warren Beatty). Gun-toting drifter Clyde rescues dreamer Bonnie from her drab existence by regaling her with colorful tales of the outlaw life. Joined by Clyde’s brother Buck (Gene Hackman), his wife Blanche (Estelle Parsons), and the gas-station attendant C. W. Moss (Michael J. Pollard), they go on a crime spree through Texas and Oklahoma. Controversial when released, it heralded the coming increase in cinematic violence and naturalism.

28. “Apocalypse Now” 1979
A masterful film about the moral madness of the Vietnam War, inspired by the novella “Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad. A soldier named Captain Willard (Martin Sheen) is sent into the Cambodian jungle to assassinate a Colonel Kurtz (Marlon Brando) who has become insane and now runs his own fiefdom. The grueling production and Coppola’s insistence on authenticity led to vast budget overruns and physical and emotional breakdowns. Considered by many to be the best war movie of all time, incredible performances and beautifully chaotic visuals make it an absolute must-see.

29. “Mr. Smith Goes To Washington” 1939
Two slimy fat-cat legislators recruit Jefferson Smith (James Stewart), an innocent and staunchly principled scout leader, as the state’s new Senator, hoping to exploit his naivete and community pride to bring home pork-barrel funds. Once he ascends to Capitol Hill, however, Mr. Smith finds nothing but deep-rooted corruption in Washington, D.C., and, absolutely refusing to submit to cynicism, he tirelessly takes the message of the American people right to their out-of-touch representatives. Based on Lewis R. Foster’s novel “The Gentleman From Montana.” Academy Award Nominations: 11, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (James Stewart), Best Supporting Actor (Harry Carey).

31. “Annie Hall” 1977
Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) a neurotic New York Jew is set up with Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) a midwestern woman. He’s a stand-up comedian, she an aspiring singer, and at first the cultural gap seems insurmountable. But despite their differences, they fall in love. As they get to know one another, they invariably attempt to change each other, causing friction and their eventual split. The film watches them try new relationships, as they reluctantly pull away from each other. Costumes in the film (especially those by Ralph Lauren) kicked-off the “Annie Hall look,” which featured menswear for women, big leather and straw shoulder bags, and hats.

36. “Midnight Cowboy” 1969
This Oscar®-winning film, which features brilliant performances by Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman, brought an unusually gritty realism to the screen and offered a then-rare portrait of New York’s street scene. Joe Buck (Jon Voight), a male prostitute from Texas, heads to Manhattan where he hopes to find plenty of wealthy women willing to pay for the services of a handsome man. When he arrives, the naive country boy befriends Ratso Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman), a tubercular, homeless con artist who dreams of moving to Florida. As they go about trying to get the money Ratso needs, the two men see and confront all the seediness, corruption and cruelty that flourish in the big city. Midnight Cowboy was the first major studio release to sport an X rating and was the first X-rated film to win the Best Picture Academy Award. It was re-rated R by the MPAA in 1971.

37. “The Best Years Of Our Lives” 1946
Perhaps the most memorable film about the aftermath of World War II, it unfolds with the homecoming of three veterans (Fredric March, Dana Andrews, and Harold Russell) to their small Midwestern town of Boone City. The leads all touch emotional truths: Loy seems able to express longing, joy, fear and surprise – mostly with her back turned – in a particularly poignant welcome home. The movie never glosses over the reality of altered lives and the inability to communicate the experience of war on the front lines or the home front. A landmark achievement. WWII vet Russell, who lost his hands in the war, is the only person to win two Oscars for the same role, Best Supporting Actor and a special Oscar “for bringing hope and courage to his fellow veterans through his appearance.”

38. “Double Indemnity” 1944
Based on James M. Cain’s hardboiled novel, Billy Wilder’s noir classic is a chilling study of human nature at its most venal. Barbara Stanwyck as Phyllis Dietrichson is the ultimate femme fatale who lures a hapless insurance salesman (Fred MacMurray) into a plot to off her wealthy husband. When the salesman comes to the woman’s suburban home pedalling insurance policies, the wife seduces him into helping her pull off the “perfect crime”: murder the husband, then make it look like he was killed by a train so they can collect on a double indemnity accident claim. The story of “Double Indemnity” was inspired by the notorious Snyder-Gray murder that took place in Queens Village, New York in the 1920s. Albert Snyder was bludgeoned to death by his wife Ruth Snyder and her lover Judd Gray in order to collect his insurance money.

39. “Doctor Zhivago” 1965
The Russian Revolution, seen from the point of view of the intellectual, introspective Dr. Zhivago. As the political landscape changes, and the Czarist regime comes to an end, Zhivago’s relationships reflect the political turmoil raging about him. Though he is married, the vagaries of war lead him to begin a love affair with the beautiful Lara (Julie Christie). But he cannot escape the machinations of a band of selfish and cruel characters: General Streinikoff, a Bolshevik General; Komarovsky (Rod Steiger), Lara’s former lover; and Yevgraf (Alec Guinness), Zhivago’s sinister half-brother. This epic, sweeping romance, told in flashback, captures the lushness of Moscow before the war and the violent social upheaval that followed. Based on the 1957 novel by Boris Pasternak. Academy Award Nominations: 10, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Film Editing.

42. “Rear Window” 1954
Like the Greenwich Village courtyard view from its titular portal, Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window is both confined and multileveled: both its story and visual perspective are dictated by its protagonist’s imprisonment in his apartment, convalescing in a wheelchair, from which both he and the audience observe the lives of his neighbors. Cheerful voyeurism, as well as the behavior glimpsed among the various tenants, affords a droll comic atmosphere that gradually darkens when he sees clues to what may be a murder.

44. “The Birth Of A Nation” 1915
The Birth of a Nation tells the story of two families, one Northern and one Southern, during the Civil War and Reconstruction periods. The Camerons, headed by “Little Colonel” Ben Cameron (Henry B. Walthall), and the Stonemans, headed by politician Austin Stoneman, (Ralph Lewis) have been friends for years, but find themselves on opposite sides of the battle lines when War comes. The Civil War exacts a personal toll on both families, only to be followed by the equally destructive Reconstruction period. Stoneman, now a carpetbagger, moves his family Southand falls under the spell of his mulatto housekeeper, while elevating another mulatto, Silas Lynch (George Siegmann), to power. Cameron watches as blacks take over the state government and harass innocent whites, even threatening his own daughter. In retaliation, he forms the Ku Klux Klan to combat the forces that threaten to destroy his world. This movie today is considered to be racist but yet a milestone in filmmaking. Silent and B&W.

53. “Amadeus” 1984
A film biography of the Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) as seen through the eyes of rival court composer Antonio Salieri (F. Murray Abraham) on the eve of Salieri’s suicide. He is at once fiercely jealous of and totally awestruck by the young Mozart, whose genius as a composer undeniably exceeds that of any other writer Salieri has heard — including himself. Salieri’s unbridled jealousy of Mozart’s soaring reputation, even as his own wanes, leads him to try to drive Mozart to his death by anonymously commissioning Mozart’s final “Requiem Mass.” Paradoxically, however, it is the obsessed and resentful Salieri who can most truly appreciate the brilliance of Mozart’s revolutionary music. Elizabeth Berridge plays Mozart’s wife, Constanze.

“M*A*S*H” imitates the episodic structure of the book upon which it is based, detailing the pranks that the unit’s personnel engage in between the frequent outbreaks of intense surgical activity.

57. “The Third Man” 1949
The fractured Europe post-World War II is perfectly captured in Carol Reed’s masterpiece thriller, set in a Vienna still shell-shocked from battle. Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) is an alcoholic pulp writer come to visit his old friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles). But when Cotton first arrives in Vienna, Lime’s funeral is under way. From Lime’s girlfriend and an occupying British officer, Martins learns of allegations of Lime’s involvement in racketeering, which Martins vows to clear from his friend’s reputation. As he is drawn deeper into postwar intrigue, Martins finds layer under layer of deception, which he desperately tries to sort out. Welles’s long-delayed entrance in the film has become one of the hallmarks of modern cinematography, and it is just one of dozens of cockeyed camera angles that seem to mirror the off-kilter postwar society. Cotten and Welles give career-making performances, and the Anton Karas zither theme will haunt you.

63. “Stagecoach” 1939
One of the most classic Hollywood westerns ever made. A stagecoach begins its journey to a frontier colony; among the travellers are a good-hearted prostitute whom the righteous townsfolk have exiled, a liquor salesman, a gambler, an alcoholic doctor, a sheriff, a hightailing businessman and a soldier’s pregnant wife. Almost immediately, the Ringo Kid (John Wayne), an escaped convict who’s both highly moral and completely innocent, intercepts them: he wants to kill the person who set him up before willingly returning to prison. The journey proves perilous as the quarreling group encounters angry Indians and violent desperadoes — and celebrate one magnificent moment that brings them together, and teaches mercy to even the most rigid among them.

67. “The Manchurian Candidate” 1962
A complex paranoid political horror story about a brainwashed American platoon and a decorated soldier programmed to assassinate political enemies. The former platoon commander Bennett Marco (Frank Sinatra) must piece together the clues to discover the killer’s identity, his next target, and who is behind this sinister plan. Seasoned cast delivers strong performances, with an uncharacteristically hard-bitten Sinatra, a maliciously identifiable Harvey, and a frighteningly overbearing Lansbury. Political juxtaposition and factual plausibility lend terrifying realism. Based on Richard Condon’s harrowing novel. Academy Award Nominations: Best Film Editing, Best Supporting Actress–Angela Lansbury.

68. “An American In Paris” 1951
Musical about a young G.I. who remains in Paris after World War II to study art. Jerry Mulligan (Gene Kelly) wants to live the life of the great painters — holed up in a Montmartre garret, starving for his art. But the reality is less romantic than the fantasy, so when a rich American gallery owner offers to support him, he agrees — even if the bargain means joining her entourage of lovers. Then he meets Lise (Leslie Caron), a young French girl, and instantly falls in love. Unfortunately, she’s already engaged to Henri Baurel, an older man who saved her from the Nazis. But when Henri discovers that she cares for another, he gracefully exits, leaving the young couple to a life together. Academy Award® Nominations: 8, including Best Director. Academy Awards®: 6, including Best Picture, Best Story and Screenplay. Kelly won a special Oscar® for his achievements.

70. “The French Connection” 1971
This account of one of the largest U.S. drug busts at the time, loosely based on a true story and Moore’s book, features one of the most famous chase scenes in film history as cars careen below the elevated train tracks dodging city traffic. The chase begins when a pair of hard-boiled New York City narcotics detectives, Jimmy ‘Popeye’ Doyle (Gene Hackman) and Buddy Russo (Roy Scheider), uncover an elaborate heroin smuggling ring headed by a French crime boss. Hackman makes a lasting impression as tough-guy cop Popeye Doyle. Wunderkind Friedkin made his commercial breakthrough and won an Oscar for Best Director.

71. “Forrest Gump” 1994
The Academy Award winner for Best Picture, Best Director Robert Zemeckis, and Best Actor Tom Hanks, this unlikely story of a slow-witted but good-hearted man somehow at the center of the pivotal events of the 20th century is a funny and heartwarming epic. Hanks plays the title character, a shy Southern boy in love with his childhood best friend (Robin Wright) who finds that his ability to run fast takes him places. As an All-Star football player he meets John F. Kennedy; as a soldier in Vietnam he’s a war hero; and as a world champion Ping-Pong player he’s hailed by Richard Nixon. Becoming a successful shrimp-boat captain, he still yearns for the love of his life, who takes a quite different and much sadder path in life. The visual effects incorporating Hanks into existing newsreel footage is both funny and impressive, but the heart of the film lies in its sweet love story and in the triumphant performance of Hanks as an unassuming soul who savors the most from his life and times.

80. “The Wild Bunch” 1969
The year is 1913 and the outlaw gang known as the Wild Bunch (led by William Holden as Pike) decide to pull one last job before retirement. They are hired by a renegade Mexican general to transport weapons and have to dodge danger at every turn, only to be double-crossed by their ruthless employer. Gripping action capped off by an absolutely shocking ultraviolent finale typical of New Hollywood films (such as Arthur Penn’s “Bonnie and Clyde”) and their message that the world is utterly without loyalty or redemption.

82. “Giant” 1956
They call it Giant because everything in this picture is big, from the generous running time (more than 200 minutes) to the sprawling ranch location (a horizon-to-horizon plain with a lonely, modest mansion dropped in the middle) to the high-powered stars. Stocky Rock Hudson stars as the confident, stubborn young ranch baron Bick Benedict, who woos and wins the hand of Southern belle Elizabeth Taylor, a seemingly demure young beauty who proves to be Hudson’s match after she settles into the family homestead. For many the film is chiefly remembered for James Dean’s final performance, as poor former ranch hand Jett Rink, who strikes oil and transforms himself into a flamboyant millionaire playboy. Director George Stevens won his second Oscar for this ambitious, grandly realized (if sometimes slow moving) epic of the changing socioeconomic (and physical) landscape of modern Texas, based on Edna Ferber’s bestselling novel. The talented supporting cast includes Mercedes McCambridge as Bick’s frustrated sister, put out by the new “woman of the house”; Chill Wills as the Benedicts’ garrulous rancher neighbor; Carroll Baker and Dennis Hopper as the Benedicts’ rebellious children; and Earl Holliman and Sal Mineo as dedicated ranch hands.

83. “Platoon” 1986
Oliver Stone’s examination of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, and the struggle for the hearts and minds of a group of battle-weary grunts. New soldier Chris (Charlie Sheen) finds himself in the midst of a fragmented troop, half of whom are constantly high on drugs. The other, “sober” soldiers, led by a gung-ho commander, are determined to plow ahead and win the war at all costs. But when their violence gets out of control, Chris has to decide which side he’s on — those who use war as an excuse to forget morality, or those who try to understand and learn from the cruelty around them. Writer/director Oliver Stone drew on his first-hand combat experiences to create this powerful film. Academy Award® Nominations: 8, including Best (Original) Screenplay. Academy Awards®: 4, including Best Picture, Best Director.

85. “Duck Soup” 1933
Duck Soup is the Marx Brothers’ most anarchic and irreverent film, considered by many to be their masterpiece. Groucho plays Rufus T. Firefly, dictator of the tiny nation of Freedonia, who decides to go to war with a neighboring country just because he’s already paid a month’s rent on the battlefield. Chico and Harpo come on board as two rather bumbling and incompetent spies, meant to assist Rufus in his military maneuvers. Comic madness ensues, culminating in the famous mirror sequence featuring three identical Grouchos — two of them Chico and Harpo in disguise. Was a flop when first released. Zeppo’s last screen appearance with his brothers.

The captain’s grotesque abuses of power, including a brutal flogging that results in the death of the sick old ship’s doctor, finally inspire a mutiny on the return voyage, conducted under the leadership of fair-minded officer Fletcher Christian (Clark Gable). A solid sea-going adventure epic with breathtaking location photography, authentically designed, elaborate ships and props, and compelling performances from its leads.

88. “Easy Rider” 1931
Two motorcyclists, Wyatt (Peter Fonda) and Billy (Dennis Hopper) embark on a coast-to-coast odyssey in search of real America, encountering along the way the many faces of its big cities and small towns, a hippie commune, drugs, and sex in a New Orleans bawdy house. Directed by Dennis Hopper at the age of 31 for a mere $340,000, this film went on to make multiple millions and change the pop culture landscape.This often-imitated but never-duplicated movie defined a generation and has a great soundtrack (featuring The Byrds, The Band, Steppenwolf, Jimi Hendrix, The Electric Prunes, and more). Record producer Phil Spector is also featured in the film, and late novelist Terry Southern (“The Magic Christian”) collaborated with Hopper and Fonda on the script. Academy Award Nominations: Best Supporting Actor–Jack Nicholson, Best (Original) Story and Screenplay.

89. “Patton” 1970
An award-winning and highly praised biography of controversial World War II hero General George S. Patton (George C. Scott). The film covers his wartime activities and accomplishments, beginning with his entry into the North African campaign and ending with his removal from command after his outspoken criticism of US post-war military strategy. Tracing his personal rivalry with Romel, his problematic treatment of his own men and his nearly runaway contempt for diplomacy, the film triumphs as an enduring portrait of a complex and larger-than-life figure. Academy Award® Nominations: 10. Academy Awards®: 8, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor–George C. Scott, Best (Adapted) Screenplay–Francis Ford Coppola/Edmund H. North.

But forsaking his religious duties may cost him his family’s love. The first feature film to utilize Synchronous Sound. Tunes include “Mammy,” “Toot, Toot, Tootsie” and more.

91. “My Fair Lady” 1964
An insufferably arrogant linguist, Professor Henry Higgins (Rex Harrison), bets a colleague that he can transform a flower-selling Cockney guttersnipe into a regal lady. His quarry, the irrepressible Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn), accepts his offer for diction lessons in good faith, hoping to improve her station with a career as a shopgirl. After her smashing society debut at the Ascot races, she witnesses Higgins in a self-congratulatory moment and stalks out in a rage, causing him to finally recognize that he’s fallen in love with his creation and can’t live without her. This quintessential musical from Lerner and Loewe was based on the 1913 play “Pygmalion” by George Bernard Shaw. Academy Award® Nominations: 12, including Best (Adapted) Screenplay.

92. “A Place In The Sun” 1951
George Stevens won an Oscar for his 1951 adaptation of Theodore Dreiser’s novel An American Tragedy, though the film seems a little overwrought today and even self-parodying at times. Still, Montgomery Clift’s performance as a poor lad so drawn to a rich, beautiful girl (Elizabeth Taylor) that he contemplates killing his lower-class fiancée (Shelley Winters) is powerful, sympathetic, and mesmerizing. Taylor makes a strong impression, but Winters is awfully good in the less-glamorous role. The tone of the film is oppressive–the film doesn’t exactly breathe with possibility–but there are lots of good reasons to give this movie a visit.

95. “Pulp Fiction” 1994
Quentin Tarantino cops a little from about a million different sources, mixes in some clever (and occasionally overwritten) dialogue, about a billion …, some standout performances from John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson (one super-bad cat!), Uma Thurman and Bruce Willis, and comes up with one of the freshest, most influential films in recent years.

96. “The Searchers” 1956
After marauding Comanches kill his brother’s family and kidnap their youngest daughter, bitter, morally ambiguous Civil War veteran Ethan Edwards (John Wayne) sets forth on a desperate quest to find his niece, Debbie (Natalie Wood), and save her from the “savages.” In tow, however, he has young Martin Pawley (Jeffrey Hunter), the adoptive son of the dead family. Their quest leads them hundreds of miles over several agonizing years of dead ends and double-crosses. As it becomes clearer that Debbie is living among the Comanches peacefully and has little memory of white society, Ethan resolves not to rescue her, it seems, but to save her from the disgrace of miscegenation by killing her. An epic story and dense, richly layered characterization combine with Winton C. Hoch’s lush cinematography to create a vivid tapestry of post-Civil War America. Ethan’s tight-lipped racism and willingness to shoot a man in the back dramatically upends Wayne’s heroic archetype. Based on the novel by Alan LeMay.

97. “Bringing Up Baby” 1938
Directed by Howard Hawks and co-starring Cary Grant (David Huxley) and Katherine Hepburn (Susan Vance), this is the archetypical screwball comedy. While golfing, Susan falls in love with David, a paleontologist. “Baby” is her pet leopard. Any summary of the film’s plot cannot begin to suggest what a delightful experience it is to observe her pursuit of him, complicated at one point by mistaken identity (stay with me on this) when Baby is mistaken for another leopard which has escaped from the local zoo.

98. “Unforgiven” 1992
Winner of four Academy Awards, including best picture, director, supporting actor, and best editing, Clint Eastwood’s 1992 masterpiece stands as one of the greatest and most thematically compelling Westerns ever made. “The movie summarized everything I feel about the Western,” said Eastwood at the time of the film’s release. “The moral is the concern with gunplay.” To illustrate that theme, Eastwood stars as a retired, once-ruthless killer-turned-gentle-widower and hog farmer. He accepts one last bounty-hunter mission–to find the men who brutalized a prostitute–to help support his two motherless children. Joined by his former partner (Morgan Freeman) and a cocky greenhorn (Jaimz Woolvett), he takes on a corrupt sheriff (Oscar winner Gene Hackman) in a showdown that makes the viewer feel the full impact of violence and its corruption of the soul. Dedicated to Eastwood’s mentors Sergio Leone and Don Siegel and featuring a colorful role for Richard Harris, it’s arguably Eastwood’s crowning directorial achievement.
