There are plenty of great films and almost just as many lists of great films.

What resulted is Hollywood's 100 Favorite Films, chosen by studio chiefs, Oscar winners and TV royalty.

Included in the list are some legendary soundtracks, musical performances and even a film about the music writing business. To satisfy its musical curiosity, Billboard has compiled the top 10 music-related films from Hollywood's list.
