The Alphabet Meme, filmicability-style

The idea, first proposed by Fletch at Blog Cabins: the alphabet, a to z, as represented by film titles. The only thing is: I've added numbers 0-9, too (yes, I know Fletch had a rule about this...but I ignored it--sue me). So we have:

A - Annie Hall
B - Breaking the Waves
C - City Lights
D - David and Lisa
E - Eraserhead
F - Fanny and Alexander
G - Godfather
H - Hard Day's Night
I - It's a Wonderful Life
J - Jean De Florette
K - Kramer Vs. Kramer
L - Lawrence of Arabia
M - Magnificent Ambersons
N - Napoleon
O - O Lucky Man!
P - Passion of Joan D'Arc
Q - Queen Christina
R - Rear Window
S - Sherman's March
T - Touch of Evil
U - Umberto D.
V - Vertigo
W - Wild Bunch
X - X-The Man With the X-Ray Eyes
Y - You Can Count On Me
Z - Zulu
0 - Zero for Conduct
1 - One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
2 - 2001: A Space Odyssey
3 - Three Women
4 - 400 Blows
5 - 5000 Fingers of Dr. T
6 - Six Pack
7 - Se7en
8 - 8 Women
9 - 9 to 5

Looks like we have a six-film overlap (you can see my list here: ). Curiously, there were no Lynch films on my list, but there was some tight competition...Lawrence of Arabia vs. Lost Highway, Masculin Feminin vs. Mulholland Drive, Taxi Driver vs. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Why couldn't he have directed a movie that started with "X"?

Great video, by the way. I was originally looking for a Sesame Street photo to accompany my post, and while I didn't find one I await the opportunity to use the picture of the number 1 flying over a nest full of cuckoo birds.
