AFI Top 100 Films on DVD

The following lists are meant to track which of the American Film Institute's Top 100 Films have been released on (or are in the works for) DVD in Region 1. Titles in WHITE have been released already. Titles in ORANGE have been officially announced, or are believed to be in development. Titles in RED are have yet to be released (note that films that have been released but are now Out of Print are marked "OOP"). The original list was unveiled by the AFI in 1998. In 2007, AFI issued a revised and updated list. We've included both lists here for completeness sake. If you find any errors or corrections, please e-mail us.

Note that all of the titles below that have been released, and are still in print, can be ordered from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.uk via the search boxes on the left-hand side of the screen (under the button bar). Doing so helps support our work here at The Bits, and we greatly appreciate it.
