Live Poll: The National Film Registry's Elite Directors

The United States National Film Preservation Board created the National Film Registry in 1988 to preserve films which are "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant". Every year up to 25 films are selected and they range the gambit from experimental films and shorts to epic feature films spanning the last one thirty years of cinema.

Many actors, actresses, crew members and directors can lay claim to taking part in one of history's best films. However, since the collection is ever expanding there are certain individuals which have stood out as prolific contributors to the archive.

Which director with seven or more titles in National Film Registry do you consider the best?

I'd vote John Ford, but am surprised not to see Charlie Chaplin on the list.

@TheOldJalapenoman​ 

Good to hear from you again Jalapenoman. The board was not the same without you. Yeah I made sure but he has 6 titles in the NFR.

@themoviesmith​ Thanks for the double check.  I have major health issues and am basically bedridden now with limited access to the outside world.  I will comment here, but am unable to create polls.

Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."
