Doctor Zhivago

David Lean’s epic film spans World War I, the Russian Revolution and the Stalin era, with as many cast members as a Russian play has clouds of grey. Adjusted for inflation, two 1965 films are among the highest grossing films of all time – The Sound of Music and this film, both of which won five Oscars.
