The ‘Wizard of Oz’ has a new title – scientists have dubbed the movie the most influential movie of all time. What does this mean, you ask? Well, it won the ranking system using algorithms to work out a film’s impact, over using box office sales. Apparently, it got the highest “influence score” based on how many times it was referenced in consequent movies, according to the NY Post.

Among others were ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Psycho,’ and ‘King Kong,’ the original. The 1939 ‘Wizard of Oz’ won two Oscars in 1940. Experts at the University of Turin in Italy studied over 47,000 films listed in internet movie database, IMDb.

Interestingly enough, all of the films in the top 20 list were produced before 1980, with most being in the United States. As for influential actors, Samuel L. Jackson, Clint Eastwood and Tom Cruise were the top three. Looks like we may still be in Kansas, after all. Read more on the NY Post here.
