Movie critic Bob Mondello talks about the list of 400 great American films that were selected on Wednesday by the American Film Institute. These 400 will be submitted to a blue-ribbon panel of directors and other people in the film industry for a vote to determine the "top 100 American films." He says that creating such a list is very subjective. He talks about several great films that didn't make the list, and a few less-than-great ones that did.
