In under a minute, catch a whirlwind montage of great moments in cinematic history spanning 60 years.

Joel Bocko, of the film blog Wonders in the Dark, has compiled flash clips from movies in the period 1912 to 1970. We caught glimpses of classics like "City Lights," "Metropolis" and many, many more. According to Bocko, the selection was "contingent not on a canon but whatever I had on DVD."

The montage ends with a quote from 1970's "Patton": "And whispering in his ear, a warning. That all glory is fleeting," the clip concludes. Fleeting, too, are these clips: It bears re-watching.
