Lists by Jarvish
In the result of a tie, the higher IMDB rating decides whose higher - if this is still a tie, the movie that grossed the most whilst at number 1 ranks higher.
The "year" of the film is the year in which the movie first reached number one.
Total weeks at number one in the movie's original run only count, but if weeks at number one occur over two calendar years (e.g Avatar in 2009 and 2010) then it's the total weeks at number one that is used.
Only films that reached number 1 in the US box office charts qualify.
See how much of a CSI buff you are by seeing how many of these people you recognise....
If there is someone who isn't on this list but should be, please leave a comment accordingly and I'll add.
