Does a one-word title bring good luck to movies in terms of Oscar wins? Well, numbers never lie: more than 25% of Best Picture winners have only one word in their title.

These titles may define an unforgettable setting (Casablanca, Titanic or Chicago) a real-life legend (Gandhi, Amadeus or Patton), a fictional icon (Rocky, Gladiator or Hamlet) or simply a state of being embracing the film's spirit (Unforgiven, Braveheart or more recently Parasite).

Which of these 25 one-word titled Best Picture winners is your personal favorite?

This may not be popular choices from others point of view, but to me only the following are true Oscar winners. A true winner is memorable.
Casablanca
Amadeus
Ben-Hur
Platoon
Gandhi
Patton
Braveheart
