|Yeah, can't we just categorize these things either "American" or "Foreign"?|
Or better yet, "fern"

: Or are you suggesting I use *every* country listed on the IMDB pages, and
: therefore have entries for films under multiple countries?
: Hey, maybe I'll make a list by box-office gross? Or would you like to do that?
Ooooh, tempting. Two problems, though. First, I suspect quite a few of these films did not register with most of the accessible box-office analysts (not least because a few of them were produced for TV!). Second, because we are listing films from across the entire past century of cinema, more or less, there is the question of whether we would take inflation into account, and if so, how. (Plus, I think the grosses for a lot of the films released before 1980 weren't even made public -- the attention to grosses, as exemplified by the weekly-box-office-report thing, really only came into being with the rise of 1970s-style blockbusters, I think, but I could be wrong about that.)
