The best movies gross the most

Many were thrilled when American Sniper became the top-grossing domestic film of 2014, coming in at $350 million.  It sounds like an impressive achievement, but it’s not.

Over time, both the inflation in ticket prices and an ever-increasing population have distorted our perceptions of what a good movie gross is.  The first part of this problem has been addressed by sites such as Box Office Mojo, who have adjusted historical movie grosses for ticket inflation.  The second half of the story gets incorporated here.

The list of the top 200 inflation- and population-adjusted (i.e., per capita 2015 dollars) movies of all time follows at the end of this article.

Getting excited over just $350 million in a movie gross needs to be tempered against what is without doubt the most impressive gross of all time: Gone with the Wind.  Released in 1939, Gone with the Wind grossed $1.64 billion in today’s dollars.  That equates to $12.54 per capita at the time, an astonishing level of support across society – for what is arguably one of the best films in history.  The American Film Institute (AFI) ranks it the sixth best American film ever.

Gone with the Wind’s normalized movie gross lead is truly amazing.  In second place stands Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) at $6.87 per capita in 2015 dollars, or about half of the first-place showing.  Snow White also makes the AFI’s top-100 ranking, at #34.

The remainder of the top 10 per capita grosses are all fine movies (save, perhaps, E.T.) and deserve the financial support they received at the time: #3, Star Wars (1977); #4, The Ten Commandments (1956); #5, The Sound of Music (1965); #6, Doctor Zhivago (1965); #7, Fantasia (1941); #8, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982); #9, Jaws (1975); and #10, Ben-Hur (1959).

In the top 20 per capita grosses, there are only three films made in 1980 or later -- E.T., Titanic (#14, 1997), and The Empire Strikes Back (#17, 1980).  This should be telling the movie executives something.

In fact, the most striking illustration of the movie industry’s progressive failings comes from the following graph showing the inflation-normalized per capita movie gross rank versus the year of release.  If you are middle-aged or older and one of those who thinks the top grossing movies of each year aren’t nearly as good as they as used to be (and they are getting progressively worse), you are right.  And the vast majority of the public agrees with you.

It’s bizarre that the executives in Hollywood continue to fund and produce the junk they do.  They are leaving money on the table.  Many of the great films of all time were by far the highest grossing movies when properly normalized for ticket inflation and population growth.

Unlike the music industry, where there has always been an inverse correlation between quality and sales, the film industry sees quality rewarded at the box office turnstiles.  One quarter of the top 100 per capita grossing films of all time also appear in the AFI’s list of the best films of all time.

Critics will say that the public won’t pay to watch the long epic films of quality anymore.  Nonsense.  The only film released after 1982 in the top 30 gross rank is Titanic – James Cameron’s three-and-a-half-hour 1997 masterpiece.

The public will also still pay to see biblical epics such as The Ten Commandments and Ben-Hur, but then, of course, you would need to find an actor remotely in the league of Charlton Heston for on-screen presence, and a solid screenplay as well.  Nothing remotely close has appeared in recent decades, which is reflected in the poor box office performance of the pretenders (see, e.g., the terrible 2014 film Noah starring Russell Crowe, which grossed only $100 million, placing it #32 for that year behind such “classics” as Mr. Peabody & Sherman).

Films define the political culture.  If we want a good culture, then someone is going to have to find a way to get good films produced and distributed again.  On that note, here is the list of the top 200 ticket inflation-adjusted per capita film grosses of all time (values in per capita 2015 dollars):
