The frame: the film “the Wizard of Oz”
Italian researchers from the Turin University named three films that have influenced the development of art. The leader of the rating was the picture “the Wizard of Oz” in 1939, reported in an article published in the journal Applied Network Science on Friday, November 30.
Second place went to the first tape of the series “Star wars” — “a New hope” 1977, produced by George Lucas. On the third line — the picture is Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” in 1960.
“The success of the film is usually measured by the revenues from box office receipts or the opinions of professional critics. Such measures, however, can be affected by external factors such as advertising or trends, and do not demonstrate the impact of the film for a long period of time,” said the authors.
For the study, researchers used the kinoresursov IMDb. “Our goal was to measure the success of the film, given how he influenced other tapes released after its premiere, both from the point of view of economy and art”, — they explained.
The authors stressed that the results of their work more relevant to Western culture, because the IMDb site focuses on the Western films and actors.
