London: ‘ET’, directed by Steven Spielberg, has been voted the ‘Greatest Film Of All Time’ in an online poll.
The film that won four Oscars in 1983 but was beaten to the Best Picture award by Richard Attenborough`s Gandhi topped the poll of more than 2,500 people for a news website.
Movie expert Barry Norman described the sci-fi classic as ‘the perfect family film’.
"A magical tale for children, a triumph of special effects, a chastening lesson to bigots everywhere and, as the director Steven Spielberg describes it, a simple and pure love story,” a news daily quoted him as saying.
The Wizard Of Oz landed the second spot, followed by Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Toy Story.
