Funny, this alphabet thingy. So, X THE UNKNOWN gets a mention but not THE QUATERMASS XPERIMENT, ZULU is in but THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING is out etc. etc. It's like in a tournament where not always the best teams make it to the quarter finals.

Statistics:
1920s: 4
1930s: 1
1940s: 2
1950s: 3
1960s: 8
1970s: 4
1980s: 1
1990s: 1
2000s: 2
