Please recommend your favorite Historical Movies or Period Piece. I am particularly interested in movies set in the time of the American founding fathers (Note to Disney, Please put out Johnny Tremain (1957) on DVD). Just to let you know some of my favorites: The Bounty: Visually stunning, it seemed very true to the actual events even if it was not. The Last of the Mohicans: Another great scenic movie, the running got to be a bit much (I loved Ben Stiller's skit that he did on this movie for his TV show). Tucker: One of the reasons why I love my country, the inventive and entrepreneurial spirit. Great soundtrack and nostalgic through and through. How the West Was Won My family never wants me to pick movies because I am like the guy that wants to play Monopoly over boggle. I always want to watch an epic and this HTWWW is and epic to rule them all. I love movies with an Intermission and if it does not follow the hero over several continents than I like it to follow several generations like this one does. The other neat thing about this movie are the visible segments that cut the print up into thirds for it's original use in the Cineramadome. Please recommend some of your favorites that you think no one should miss. Please limit your picks to movies available on DVD.
