"Frankly my dear, I don`t give a damn" was named the top movie quote of all time by the American Film Institute Tuesday.

Clark Gable`s memorable closing line from "Gone with the Wind" came out on top on "AFI`s 100 Years ...100 Movie Quotes," the latest ranking of top movie moments that the organization conducts to celebrate the first 100 years of American film.

Marlon Brando`s "I`m going to make him an offer he can`t refuse," from the 1972 classic "The Godfather," was second, followed by another memorable Brando line -- "You don`t understand. I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I could`ve been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am" -- from the 1954 drama "On the Waterfront."

Judy Garland`s "Toto, I`ve got a feeling we`re not in Kansas anymore," from 1939`s "The Wizard of Oz," was fourth. Humphrey Bogart`s "Here`s looking at you, kid" from the 1945 drama "Casablanca" was fifth.
