While some effort has been made to "rank" my choices, I can't defend or claim that I am convinced that a precision ranking is possible. Too many factors. How compare Snow White with Schindler's List? Well, for me, Snow White had a greater impact! When it came out, I saw it thirteen times, studied the backgrounds, furniture design, secondary action, memorized it!

But I was young.
