“The Godfather” has been named Hollywood’s top movie of all-time following an extensive survey of Tinseltown’s top studio bosses, Oscar winners and players.

The 1972 crime drama has beaten out “The Wizard of Oz” and “Citizen Kane” to top the new Hollywood Reporter list, while “The Shawshank Redemption” and “Pulp Fiction” round out the top five.

“Casablanca,” “The Godfather: Part II,” “E.T. The Extra Terrestrial,” “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Schindler’s List” make the top 10.

“Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan, directors Gary Ross, John Singleton and Michael Bay, Disney boss Alan Horn, producer Frank Marshall and top agent Robert Newman were among those who took part in the survey.
