A list of 300 films deemed inspirational by AFI historians will be considered. Ballots went out this week to more than 1,500 actors, producers, writers and others in the industry. Among the suggestions are "The Passion of the Christ," "The Sound of Music," "It's a Wonderful Life" and "8 Mile." (AP Photo)
