Greatest Movies Through 1960

Best Movies Compiled From Many Sources

* Viewers: Ranker – The Best Movies of All Time

This list was created from suggestions from Ranker users, then holding an open vote selecting the Best Movies. The current list is still open for voting, so the ranking of the movies can change as more votes are cast. We are using the list as of June 25, 2012 and it is interesting that only 11 movies in the top 100 of the list were for movies released through 1960 and it wasn’t until #12 on the list that the first “old” movie appeared (Casablanca). Here are the movies released through 1960 in the order they appear on the list:

  1. Casablanca
  2. Citizen Kane
  3. It’s A Wonderful Life
  4. Psycho
  5. Gone With The Wind
  6. 12 Angry Men
  7. North by Northwest
  8. Rear Window
  9. Vertigo
  10. The Wizard of Oz

That was the TOP TEN. There was only one more movie released through 1960 in the top 100 list:

  1. Some Like It Hot
