For my A.P. U.S. History class I need to make a list of three movies whose subjects are historic events in the U.S.'s history. My teacher will pick one from the list for me to do a report on the movie and the event it is based upon. I would appreciate some suggestions for movies. I don't want any military movies like Flags of Our Fathers or anything though. I like those movies but everyone will be doing those. The movie can be fictional or nonfictional as long as its subject matter pertains to U.S. history.

This is my list so far:
1. JFK
2.
3.
"That's not holy water, it's Peroxide! "

Pearl Harbor

Edit: Well, maybe that's too military

That recent one: Bobby. It's about Robert Kennedy and the night he was shot.
Paintball isn't my hobby, it's my lifestyle. Go hard or go home.

I was thinking that Bobby was an option. I have it but never got around to watching it.

1.JFK
2.Bobby
3.

My last project was a biography of Sirhan Sirhan though, so I kind of wanted to steer clear of Bobby.

How about The Untouchables? (crime drama about prohibition, starring Kevin Costner, Sean Connery and Robert DeNiero)

Or Forrest Gump (covers half-a-century's worth of US events, despite being fiction)

we had to watch that for US history. I hated it, but it did cover early immigration.

Like an immigrant coming here and getting land it the west to make a new life or what matt?

Thanks for all the input guys. I am really looking for movies about specific, important events though, not just general history. He (my teacher) wants it to be about something that had a large influence on the U.S. so I can compare and contrast the movie to the real event.

what was the name of the mvie about the cuban missle crisis? 13 days? maybe??

on a lighter note goodmorning vietnam , forest gump is debateable, M*A*S*H (the movie) platoon, tora tora tora, the longest day, green berets, bridge on the river quai, last of the mohecians (sp), the lost batalion,


you need to look to older movies for ons that really embody the events they depict the nes i listed above are all very strong movies goodmorning vietnam and M*A*S*H are very political but histerical at the same time M*A*S*H is based in Korea but is in protest of vietnam goodmorning vietnam is in vetnam staring robin williams as a radio personality.


if you havent seen any one of these movies you should they are all amazing films hope i helped!

Apocolypse Now = Fiction, and really demeaning of certain Veterans.

I suggest seeing Breach, lol. Only thing I can think of.

Fail Safe. :P
