A great list, but I think a film or two are missing including Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal.
Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs should also be part of the list because it was the first full length animated feature film and proved that such a film was not only possible, but could also be highly successful both financially and critically.
One honorable mention should be Star Wars, which completely rewrote the rules for science fiction films, special effects and the summer blockbuster. Also it's first sequel The Empire Strikes Back as another HM for not only improving on the first, but taking the big chance by creating a cliffhanger ending with the heroes in even worse shape than when the film began. A giant risk for Lucas and film making in general at the time.
