In 1977, the Royal Film Archive of Belgium sent out questionnaires to film experts from 22 countries in order to compile an extensive list of important American films. 203 people participated (116 Americans and 87 non-Americans). Each participant compiled two lists, a list of the most important films (limited to 30 titles) and a list of misappreciated films (not limited in number). The final list is sorted by number of votes (including both important and misappreciated votes).
The book lists all 2327 films that received at least 1 vote. This list includes the films that received at least 5 votes.
One of the list entries is "Songs" which includes 25 films, so I included only the first one.
