There have been 77 World War II films since 1980, and they have earned a hefty average of $58 million per movie, according to Box Office Mojo.

In honor of Memorial Day, here’s a look at Tinseltown’s greatest takes on the Second World War:

10. The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)

This is the film that made director David Lean’s career. The story of a POW who manages to settle his difference with his Japanese captor won seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Alec Guinness.

9. The Dirty Dozen (1967)

Real-life former marine Lee Marvin starred in this action hit about an Army major assigned with assembling a dozen convicted murderers on a mission to kill SS officers. The roles cemented the tough-guy standing of several actors, particularly Charles Bronson and Telly Savalas.

8. The Pianist  (2002)

This story of a Jewish Polish pianist struggling to survive the destruction of the Warsaw ghetto only broke even at the box office, taking in about $25 million. The the Roman Polanski film was a surprise with the Academy, which bestowed it with three Oscars, including Best Director and Best Actor for Adrien Brody.

7. Where Eagles Dare (1968)

Allied forces band together for a daring raid in a castle where a U.S. General is being held captive by Nazis in this hit. Clint Eastwood helped carve a reputation as a gunslinger of all persuasion in Dare, which he largely spends with a machine gun in hand.

6. The Thin Red Line (1998)

It’s hard to believe a Terrence Malik film could be eclipsed by a competitor, but Warner Bros. almost didn’t release this film for fear it would be lost in the buzz over Saving Private Ryan. Good thing the studio stuck to its, er, guns in releasing this two-segment story about the effects of war on American kids. The film was a hit in the Malik universe, collecting $46 million, $16 million more than its budget.

5. The Great Escape (1963)

Based on a true World War II incident, The Great Escape helped establish a new genre in war films: The breakout. Starring Steve McQueen, James Garner, Charles Bronson and a myriad of British stars, it made off with about $12 million in ticket sales — three times its production costs.

4. Schindler’s List (1993)

While David Lean and Richard Attenborough were considered the premiere war directors of the 1950s and ’60s, the contemporary honor would have to go to Steven Spielberg, the only director with two films on the list. This true story of Oskar Schindler’s efforts to protect his Jewish workforce in Nazi-occupied Poland won seven Oscars, including Best Picture.

3. Casablanca (1942)

While it’s largely considered a romance with battle lines drawn at the heart, this is pointedly a war film, produced during the international conflict. Many consider it the best film ever made, and it won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director for Michael Curtis.

2. Das Boot (1981)

Perhaps the most underrated war film on the list, director Wolfgang Peterson (The Perfect Storm) made his first water-bound drama about a German sub trying to destroy as much of the Allied fleet as possible without their vessel becoming a coffin. One of the first films to expertly use Steadicam, the film’s claustrophobic sensibilities make Room look like a romp in an open daisy field.

1. Saving Private Ryan (1998)

This may have been Hollywood’s best war film by the end of its first act. Spielberg opens his story about a troop trying to bring a soldier home with the Normandy invasion, perhaps the greatest battle scene recorded on film. The movie was a box office smash at $216 million and a critical darling with five Oscars, including Best Director. That it lost to Shakespeare in Love for Best Picture is a Hollywood war crime.
