What is the best movie ever made? Sweet 16

Onto round 3. I just want to reiterate a rule I made up for the last round. Please vote for all of the matchups. If you don't like either movie, just pick the lesser of two evils.

As we move along the choices get harder and harder.

Can Jaws take a bite out of Citizen Kane?

Will the Mockingbird break through the Rear Window or just break it's neck?

Can the Godfather withstand the Wrath of some Grapes?

Will the Wizard have enough brains, heart and courage when facing Laurence of Arabia?

Sorry couldn't think of any witty statements for the North. Feel free to add any you can think of.

Will the Raging Bull collapse before the Bridge over the River Kwai?

Can Star Wars "Force" it's way past the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life?

East

#1 Citizen Kane (1941) vs.#14 Jaws (1975)
#7 To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) vs.#12 Rear Window (1954)

West

#1 The Godfather (1972) vs.#6 The Grapes of Wrath (1940)
#2 Lawrence of Arabia (1962) vs.#3 The Wizard of Oz (1939)

North

Citizen Kane
To Kill A Mockingbird

The Grapes Of Wrath
The Wizard Of Oz

Casablanca
Gone With The Wind

The Bridge On The River Kwai
It's A Wonderful Life

 

Section -- To Kill A Mockingbird, The Grapes Of Wrath, Casablanca and It's A Wonderful Life are four of my all-time favorites. Star Wars and The Godfather are greats, too, but I had to go with Wrath and Wonderful Life.

Good survey! Sorry I've already missed out on so much.
