I am starting to realize that even a top 20 would not do justice to all of the really good movies. However, I do not think that there are more than 100 in the IMHO list.

I really can't decide which one gets numero uno but this is DWs #1:
Close Encounters of a Third Kind

Thanks all for participating. As in any Top 10 list there were 297 different movies listed. The most frequently mentioned was The Godfather with 8 mentions. Missing was Hitchcock's The Birds. Also missing were Marx Brothers, Laurel & Hardy, and only one WC Fields.

IMDb maintains a Top 250 list, and #1 is The Shawshank Redemption. I like that vote!
