Citizen Kane is a 1941 American drama film directed, co-written, produced by, and starring Orson Welles. Often considered by critics, filmmakers and fans to be the greatest film ever made, Citizen Kane is particularly praised for its innovative cinematography, music, and narrative structure.
The Wizard of Oz
The Wizard of Oz is a 1939 American musical fantasy adventure film produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and the most well-known and commercial adaptation based on the 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Notable for its use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling, musical score and unusual characters, over the years it has become one of the best known of all films and part of American popular culture.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was controversial when it was released, but also successful at the box office and made Jimmy Stewart a major movie star. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington was nominated for 11 Academy Awards, winning for Best Original Story. In 1989, the Library of Congress added the movie to the United States National Film Registry, for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”
The Big Sleep
The movie stars Humphrey Bogart as detective Philip Marlowe and Lauren Bacall as the female lead in a story about the “process of a criminal investigation, not its results.” In 1997, the U.S. Library of Congress deemed the film “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and added it to the National Film Registry.
Notorious is a 1946 American thriller film directed and produced by Alfred Hitchcock, starring Cary Grant, Ingrid Bergman and Claude Rains as three people whose lives become intimately entangled during an espionage operation. Notorious marks a watershed for Hitchcock artistically, and represents a heightened thematic maturity.
