Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has just released their official list of top 15 most influential classic films of all time and it looks like Star Wars has made the list along with such classics as Metropolis, Gone with the Wind, Citizen Kane, and Psycho, among others.

These constituted the “Star Wars Expanded Universe,” which included a series of sequels unlike any ever seen. Lucas later re-titled the film Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
