Magnetoresistance measurements on a variety of lanthanum manganite epitaxial films are reported here. While stoichiometric$La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}MnO_3$ show 40% GMR at 300 K, an enhanced GMR up to 70% is observed in the case of oxygen deficient $La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}MnO_{3-δ}$ (δ≈ 0.18) and $La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}Mn_{1-x}Ti_xO_3$ (x≈0.03-0.07) thin films. Over 85% GMR is observed in the self-doped $La_{1-x}MnO_{3-δ}$ (x≈0.3, δ≈0.15) thin film. Magnetic/non-magnetic oxide multilayers of $(La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}MnO_3)$30 $A/(La_{0.85}MnO_3)_{10} 30$ A show over 70% GMR at 280 K compared to only 38% GMR in $La_{0.6}Pb_{0.4}MnO_3$, single film at 280 K indicating that this system mimicks the GMR effect in $(Fe/Cr)_n$ metallic multilayers
