In 2009, the editors of American History magazine published a special issue ranking the "100 Greatest Spy Movies" in their estimation. They cheated by counting The Bourne Trilogy as a single entry and of course, their rankings are entirely disputable (as is true of any ranked list). Some of their selections were actually TV mini-series.
