All movies featured in Gilbert Adair's book Flickers. The order is Adair's.

"In Flickers, Gilbert Adair selects a single image - a movie still - from each of cinema's 100 years and, with great wit and perspicacity, accompanies it with a short essay on both the still itself and what that image represtents in terms of cinema history."
