AFI: 100 Years 100 Thrills

100 Action Films (through 1999)
Televised 6/1/2001

Home School: Film Studies and American Culture

AFI Film Lists with our Home School Viewing Status:

These pages show all of the AFI "Top 100" film lists and our viewing status. Track our progress or your own.
We try to view a film at a theater. Often, classic films are shown at festivals. Our second choice is on television
without commercial interruptions. Many cable channels (HBO, Flix, AMC) show classic films. Also, the library
and video store carry many classic films on tape. Films viewed on TV with commercials are listed only for nostalgia.
