I like David Lean, Alfred Hitchcock, Charlie Chaplin, Ridley Scott all for different reasons. It is really hard to choose one, probably depends on how greatest is defined.

FYC. Tony Scott, He wouldn't get my vote, but I think he has the credentials to get into the discussion with a resume of fifteen excellent movies that would be on par with some of the others.

Why did Nolan not make the cut?

Added now. Thanks! Actually I made this list in 2014. Maybe I forgot to add him somehow.

You'd be surprised by Nolan's power in these polls...

Eh, true. Sad, but true. He isn't all that great, but he had a great quarterback, so everything thinks he's the best coach ever.

I noticed that you have Tony Scott twice.

I'd also cut Peter Lord and J. Lee Thompson, I don't think they would get many votes.

Dear Dan,

This URL links to a Pirates of the Caribbean poll.

I'm guessing you probably meant this one: http://www.imdb.com/poll/rEZOaY31ANs
