A Study Says “The Wizard of Oz” Is the Most Influential Movie Ever

Science has determined the “most influential” movie of all time . . . and it’s “The Wizard of Oz”, which was released in 1939.

Researchers in Italy “analyzed the impact” of more than 47,000 movies to determine which ones have changed movies the most.  And they used some complex math to figure it out, so we’re just going to take their word for it.

Here’s the Top 20:

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.

5.  “2001: A Space Odyssey”, 1968

6.  “Metropolis”, 1927

7.  “Citizen Kane”, 1941

19.  “Gone with the Wind”, 1939

20.  “Battleship Potemkin”, 1925
