1. Out of all of these movies, I believe I seen almost half of these movies.

2. I find it quite interesting to see which movies had the biggest box office success when you adjust for inflation.

1. Most people would be shocked to find out that "Gone With the Wind" is the number 1 movie of all-time in box office receipts when adjusted for inflation.

2. I personally have never seen "Gone With The Wind"

Going through there are about 25 which I have never seen (this includes all Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings)
There are 15 which I have only partly watched or am unsure about.

The others I've viewed, some multiple times.

Surprised not to find any Alfred Hitchcock films there.

I've watched Gone With The Wind a few times, but only on the home-screen (television).

I saw The Poseidon Adventure either Christmas Day '72 or New Year's Day of '73. It was at the Hylan Cinema.

@Sturgis,
1. The biggest surprise to me is that the 1o top grossing films of all-time are between 37 to 82 year old movies.

2. The movie Titanic being the only exception being it was released in 1997 making the movie titanic 22 years old.

3. The top 10 grossing films of all-time adjusted for inflation are very old movies. That surprise me.

What's really interesting to me is The Lion King and Avengers: Endgame are on this list, and they both came out this year. That's a helluva lotta tickets sold.

The reason why they're there ... is not the number of tickets sold but ticket prices of the ones sold.

@tsarstepan,
Then why is the list adjusted for inflation?

Lion King (2019) is 11th on the unadjusted list and 20th on the adjusted one.

Lots of old movies have been viewed many times by the same audiences, who bring their younger relatives in to watch also. My mother used to tell me of watching people line up around the block to get in to some theaters. I no longer recall which films she meant, except for Snow White by Disney.

@edgarblythe,
When I was a kid we had to queue up to get to the cinema. Then again I was a kid, it was the summer holidays and if you wanted to see a Disney cartoon you had to go to the cinema.

@izzythepush,
I was able to go to drive in movies with my parents and on Saturdays got in free to the Kiddie Matinee, because I was a school crossing guard. Kiddie matinees offered hours of cartoons, Three Stooges, Little Rascals, westerns and random films, such as Mickey Rooney as Huck Finn and Young Tom Edison.

@edgarblythe,
We never had drive in movies over here, although my father told me that mobile cinemas used to tour the villages, setting up in a field every few weeks or so.

@izzythepush,
Long after I thought all drive ins were vanished, they set up a new one on the other side of Tomball. I don't go because I don't want heat and insects in summer, nor freezing in winter.

@edgarblythe,
I always thought they sounded cool. I would have loved to have gone to one.

I saw this as a support film years ago. The film within the film is really good, every disaster film ever made rolled into one.

@hightor,
1. I seen approximately 40 of the movies on the list.

2. Also there are an additional 10 movies on the list I might have seen, but not completely sure.

3. That leaves approximately 50 of the movies on this list that I never seen.
