TCM's 15 Most Influential Classic Movies

by Joey Paur

Hey gang! In celebration of Turner Classics Movies 15th anniversary they have released a list of the 15 most Influential Classic Movies. Here is what they have to say about the list.

This list of movies signifies films that TCM has deemed influential in the arena of film and the culture that produced them. These are not necessarily the most important films, nor representative of "firsts" in film history-these are the movies that shaped the cinema and the audiences that viewed them. On its 15th anniversary, TCM reflects on these titles, many of which are vital examples of the programming that our network has proudly presented to audiences. These films are presented in chronological order.

I have seen 14 of the 15 films mentioned. The one film that I have not yet seen is 'Breathless' so I may have to check that one out. How many of these films have you seen? Heres the list.

1. The Birth of a Nation (1915)
2. Battleship Potemkin (1925)
3. Metropolis (1927)
4. 42nd Street (1933)
