50 Greatest Movies TV Guide
(on TV and VIDEO)

by TV GUIDE Magazine

TV Guide Magazine (the August 8-14, 1998 issue) offered their picks for the perfect flicks to catch on television or to watch on one's VCR (or DVD player). From hundreds of the magazine's four-star titles, they chose the movies that played particularly well on the small screen and held up to repeated viewings. Their one golden standard was how much fun they were to watch. These were the films -- from Chaplin to Hanks, Kane to Vader -- that represented the Hollywood dream machine at its most inspired. They included monster films, heroes, villains, gangsters, and more.
