Celebrating its 15th anniversary, cable network Turner Classic Movies has compiled a list of -- what they say are -- the 15 most influential films of all time. And (drum roll) they are ... listed after the jump ...

  1. "The Birth of a Nation" (1915)

  2. "Battleship Potemkin" (1925)

  3. "Metropolis" (1927)

  4. "42nd Street" (1933)

  5. "It Happened One Night" (1934)

  6. "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937)

  7. "Gone with the Wind" (1939)

  8. "Stagecoach" (1939)

  9. "Citizen Kane" (1941)

  10. "Bicycle Thieves" (1947)

  11. "Rashomon" (1950)

  12. "The Searchers" (1956)

  13. "Breathless" (1959)

  14. "Psycho" (1960)

  15. "Star Wars" (1977)

Monsters & Critics has a nice round-up of YouTube clips from each of the films.

Let the kvetching begin. Starting point: Only one movie from the last, er, 49 years? And what defines influential, anyway?
