THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (1962)

A vast conspiracy is set to bring down the government, and only Frank Sinatra can stop it.

FRANKENSTEIN (1931)

This iconic Horror classic has lost some of its power to shock, but still elicits sympathy for its “Monster.”

TITANIC (1997)

This all-encompassing sequel involves at least two separate movies that never quite meet.

THE GODFATHER (1972)

Francis Ford Coppola’s mafia epic is now fixed in American culture.
