Henry Covert's All-Time Favorite Films

This not a "Best" list, but a list of "Favorites" - more or less in order (at least the first 200). Where ranking becomes difficult, some films are clustered together by director or theme. One of my favorites is not yet in this database (Devil in Miss Jones). This list will be continually morphing and changing and being reordered, especially in its bottom rungs.
