Here's the list of 100 Movies that Yahoo! says we should see before we die (in alphabetical order). After looking at the list, I can honestly say that it's missing quite a few of the ones I would have included as "must see" films, but oh well. The ones that I have seen are in bold. Which ones have you seen? The ones that I would add to the list are at the end of Yahoo's list.

Thanks to NurseExec at Driven to Distraction for the great idea!
