In recent years, the editors of Variety have posed the same question to hundreds of famous personalities: “What is the movie that changed your life?” Gathered here for the first time are the responses of movie stars and comedians, politicians and war correspondents, athletes and business magnates, and many more.

We discover Candace Bushnells appreciation of Annie Hall, which she refashioned into Sex and the City; Sen. John McCains quote-laden adoration of Viva Zapata!; and journalists Tom Brokaw and Lawrence Wrights disparate inspirations, His Gal Friday and All the Presidents Men.
