This list is compiled from the votes of IMDB Classic Film Board who decided to find 1000 alternative titles for the famous They Shoot Pictures, Don't They? List. Together they compile together about 2000 canonical classics, cult films, tv films and unknown stuff.

This is in my opinion a VERY interesting list with choices one rarely sees in best of lists. Which is great! This is also probably the last list of this size I'm ever going to make for this site, unless I find something really worthwhile some day.

The Fantomas film at place 18 represents the whole film series.

It is an interesting concept but it's too bad you picked up such an ugly list format....
Posted: 3 years, 1 month ago at May 10 14:19
Well, considering there's about 1000 titles in this list, I thought any other format would be too much. It's much more convenient to go through the titles now. And I didn't want to do ten separate lists for this, like I did with Jonathan Rosenbaum.

I'm fine with the structure. It suits long lists and gives a tidy guide to films seen and unseen, and has links to each film. Maybe the films might have been in year or alphabetical order? Or was this the result in preferential order according to the voters? I take part in these annual Doubling the Canon polls

I think it was the preferential order. The list has changed after this many times, I haven't bothered to update it.

Everyone can reorder the lists manually by year or by title by clicking the "sort by" button under the headline of the list.
