tcm 15 influential

To celebrate their 15th anniversary, Turner Movie Classics has released a list of the 15 Most Influential Classic Movies.

“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.”

I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve only seen 11 out of the 15 films listed. But the remaining four have been added to my must-watch list. How many of the films have you seen? Full list after the jump.

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