Last week, ABC and People Magazine announced its Best In Film list. At the top of the all time favorite list, the 1939 film Gone With The Wind. No surprise!
500,000 film fans gave their imput and The Wizard of Oz, also made in 1939, came in second place, with The Godfather, Francis Ford Coppola’s epic 1972 film, coming in third.

The top five was rounded off by Casablanca and ET (one of my favorites!).

Airplane! took best comedy & The Sound of Music was voted best musical. What about The Pirate Movie?! That was my favorite musical growing up — I watched it every weekend!!

Tom Hank’s Forrest Gump was voted greatest actor, The Lion King best animated feature, Star Wars best sci-fi film, and Rhett Butler’s infamous ‘Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn’ from Gone with the Wind as best line.

SEE ALL THE RESULTS from every category!

Boxoffice is straightforward; you have this weekly Top 10 list of returns, you compare each movie to the other movies and voila!!! Yet one respect in which boxoffice reporting is pretty odd – it emphasizes ticket grosses yet rarely mentions ticket sales. That would be like always reporting how many ad dollars sold off “Lost” and not mentioning the number of viewers that actually watched the show. Isn’t that weird…

So “Avatar” might be The Biggest Movie of All Time based on grosses ($1.859 billion and counting), it’s important to remember how rising ticket prices skew the returns… so if we look at number of tickets sold, here’s the Top 20 movies of all time:

1 “Gone With the Wind” (1939) 202,044,600
2 “Star Wars” (1977) 178,119,600
3 “The Sound of Music” (1965) 142,415,400
4 “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” (1982) 141,854,300
5 “The Ten Commandments” (1956) 131,000,000
6 “Titanic” (1997) 128,345,900
7 “Jaws” (1975) 128,078,800
8 “Doctor Zhivago” (1965) 124,135,500
9 “The Exorcist” (1973) 110,568,700
10 “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) 109,000,000
11 “101 Dalmatians” (1961) 99,917,300
12 “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) 98,180,600
13 “Ben-Hur” (1959) 98,000,000
14 “Return of the Jedi” (1983) 94,059,400
15 “The Sting” (1973) 89,142,900
16 “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981) 88,141,900
17 “Jurassic Park” (1993) 86,205,800
18 “The Graduate” (1967) 85,571,400
19 “Star Wars: Episode I” (1999) 84,825,800
20 “Fantasia” (1941) 83,043,500

“Avatar,” despite topping the worldwide gross list, by and by, is only No. 26 on the ticket sales list with 76,421,000 sold … at least, so far…
