This movie remains as one of the favorite movies of all time for its ability to help Americans forget the Depression and its influence on filmmaking.

"The Godfather" Making timeless classic movies can be difficult, but director Francis Ford Coppola accomplished just that with "The Godfather." It is as relevant today as it was when it was made and helped launch the careers of such great actors as Al Pacino and Robert Duvall.

"Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope" When George Lucas's epic tale of love and war on a foreign planet finally hit the big screen in 1977, it would become one of the favorite movies of all time and change the way movies were made forever. The special effects were unlike anything anyone had ever seen before and Lucas's mythology became the basis for an entire sub-culture.

"Psycho" When Alfred Hitchcock sets his mind to creating a classic horror movie, he often succeeded beyond anyone's wildest dreams. With "Psycho" Hitchcock re-created how horror movies were to be filmed and introduced the concept of gore and violence to the Amercan movie-going audiences. It hit a chord with the public and became one of the favorite movies of all time.
