This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
All the films from the Silent Era top 100, plus the 200 films that didn't make the list.
The original list actually contains 298 movies. This iCM-list contains 304 movies because the following titles consist of multiple entries:

- Fantômas (5 parts)
100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films: Background
This list of 100 important directors of animated short films was assembled in late 2008 to serve as a complement to “Brief Encounters,” a proposed list of 250 great short films (both animated and live-action) which was to be developed by the folks at the They Shoot Pictures, Don’t They? website. Unfortunately, that 250-film list is in limbo, leaving our list without a home.
The “100 Important Directors of Animated Short Films” list is not intended to be comprehensive. These are simply 100 directors whom we feel are important and deserving of increased recognition by film lovers. For each director, we selected three “highly recommended” movies. In addition, we included a category of “TSPDT 250 Greatest Shorts” to highlight any of these directors’ films which were tentatively slated to place on the abandoned Brief Encounters list.
This project was facilitated by Lee Price (lee-109) on the IMDb Classic Film message board. Project team: Lee Price, Robert Reynolds (Illtdesq), Jorge Didaco (jdidaco), Bill Kamberger (bkamberger), and Rob Tomshany (RobT-2), with additional input from animation fans on the IMDb Classic Film message board.
Myrna Loy (August 2, 1905 – December 14, 1993) was an American actress. Trained as a dancer, she devoted herself fully to an acting career following a few minor roles in silent films. Originally typecast in exotic roles, often as a vamp or a woman of Asian descent, her career prospects improved following her portrayal of Nora Charles in The Thin Man (1934). Her successful pairing with William Powell resulted in 14 films together, including five subsequent Thin Man films.
Movie list from popular russian media resourse "Afisha". Choice of 16 russian critics. Based on hard book guide of the same name. The purpose of the list was not to choose "the best movies of all over the world", but to highlight the most important movies with high influence on cinematography.
All movies featured in "Nightmares in Red, White and Blue: The Evolution of the American Horror Film"
The ten most voted movies on IMDb from the 1920's. These are the movies from the 20's that have been sought out, watched and rated by the most people. It is more a popularity list than a "highest rating" list. This far back one would expect that rating and votes should follow each other closely but it is not always the case. The list contains quite a number of short movies as it was the golden age of Chaplin and Keaton.

The YouTube web series www.FreakyFuckinFriday.com counts down the Top Horror / Mystery Anthology Episodes Ever! .
....but because anthology shows usually feature episodes in diverse sub-genres - this list will also include episodes based on; fantasy, science-fiction, comedy, drama, war, crime, etc.
The only requirement is the episode must have been featured on an anthology show.
The episodes listed are all based on at least 1 of 3 things; historical importance, creepiness/creativity, and just being a straight up enjoyable watch. The list will change as new episodes of shows are released and older shows are rediscovered/re-examined.
The list is in descending order from best to least best.
Feel free to comment! Every piece of input will be carefully examined.

TCM America's June 2015 schedule in chronological order, created to assist in planning your viewing or DVR recording. iCM doesn't allow repeats, of which there are several each month, particularly of the MGM Parade Show and other shorts. Any repeats will only be listed in their earliest timeslot. The following films will air multiple times this month:
The Glass Key (1942)
Annie Hall (1977)
The Killers (1946)
Mean Streets (1973)
Note that there are no separate IMDb pages for the 15 episodes of the 1943 Batman starring Lewis Wilson, so it appears as just "Batman" during its first airtime of the month. TCM is airing a few episodes this month separately, refer to the program guide at TCM.com if you're interested.

Status: Complete, please contact me regarding any errors or programming changes and I'll fix them. (Updated June 12, changed June 22nd programing to reflect Christopher Lee memorial, thanks ClassicLady!)
