FG's top 250 of the 70s

This list was compiled through year by year rating polls. The lowest amount of votes needed to be eligible was 5 votes. The point of the exercise was to give more obscure movies an equall oppurtunity to compete. The attendance rate varied between 30 and 70, which is part of the reason some years are more represented than others.
