The SIR DAVID LEAN directed bio-pic of English soldier T.E. LAWRENCE's exploits in the Middle East during the First World War won seven Oscars in 1963, and beat Charlton Heston classic Ben-Hur into second place, with GEORGE LUCAS' Star Wars trilogy pushing the modern classic LORD OF RINGS trilogy into fourth place.
DAN JOLIN, Total Film's features editor, explains the choices, "Not only is Lawrence of Arabia a gripping war drama played out on the grandest scale, but it deals with all the big themes - heroism, friendship, ambition, hubris.
"Epic doesn't have to mean 'old'. The Lord Of The Rings trilogy is proof that modern film-makers can do big movies as well as classic film-makers."
The full top ten is as follows:
1. LAWRENCE OF ARABIA
3. STAR WARS
4. THE LORD OF THE RINGS
6. THE GODFATHER PART II
