'Wizard Of Oz' The Most Influential Movie In History

The University of Turin just released their findings from a study they did aimed at pinpointing the most influential movies of all time. Topping the list were movies like Star Wars, Psycho, and King Kong but the most influential movie of them all was the 1939 classic 'The Wizard Of Oz'. Lead researcher Dr Livio Bioglio stated “We have developed an algorithm that uses references between movies as a measure for success, and which can also be used to evaluate the career of directors, actors and actresses, by considering their participation in top-scoring movies.” Having been referenced almost 3000 times in other movies its no surprise the film that brought us the 'Yellow Brick Road' landed at #1.

The entire list is as follows:

1. "The Wizard of Oz", 1939 

2. "Star Wars", 1977

 3. "Psycho", 1960 

4. "King Kong", the 1933 original . . . not the 2005 Jack Black one, obviously.
