“`Researchers in Italy have declared The Wizard of Oz as the most influential movie ever made, with inspiration and referencing as their metric of influence. The research team came to their conclusion after analyzing more than 47,000 films across twenty-six genres using the online movie database IMDb as a source.

“`The results were printed in the journal Applied Network Science, and reveal the top twenty influential films were all made before 1980; perhaps unsurprising given that classic cinema has had time to make their mark. Star Wars and Psycho captured second and third place. Other iconic entries include Citizen Kane, Metropolis, Casablanca, Birth of a NationDr. Strangelove, and Gone with the Wind.

“`Other findings had Alfred Hitchcock at the top of the directors list, with Steven Spielberg in second. Influential male actors include Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Cruise. Lois Maxwell, who played Miss Moneypenny in many of the Jame Bond films, and Carrie Fisher were the winning female actors.
