Synopsis by Forrest Spencer

In June 1998, the American Film Institute announced the top 100 films of the 20th century. The list was complied from a survey of 1,500 participants, including filmmakers, historians, critics, and other entertainment industry professionals. The AFI and CBS produced this multi-packet video feature that features film clips of those top films, including Citizen Kane, The Godfather, It's a Wonderful Life, Star Wars, and Gone With the Wind. This 145-minute special is hosted by Jodie Foster, Richard Gere, and Sally Field, and is annotated with features of the filmmakers like Martin Scorcese and Sidney Lumet.
