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.

Untouchables is based around Elliot Ness, who brought down Capone. Pretty big event of the 20's.

I read the book Fail-Safe last year. Maybe I could get away with putting Dr. Strangelove on the list.

Okay, so far my list is:
1. JFK
2. Bobby
3. Untouchables

Keep the ideas coming guys, I appreciate the help.

Good Night, and Good Luck...

Some people have told me they found it to be boring, but I thought it was fascinating. Neat stuff about Edward R. Murrow and Joseph McCarthy...if you're into it.

Edit: And yes, the movie about the Cuban Missile Crisis is Thirteen Days. Also a fantastic movie.

well blow is based on a true story. this movie is awsone to watch, verry entertaining, and yet gives truthfull information on what actally happened to george jung (the man who basically single haded brought cocane into america). with him saposivley touching more then 85% of the cocaine brought ito america in the 1970's this movie would be great for a report that i personally would love to read.

Basically any western movie with John Wayne. May be a bit of a stretch for the historical part, but hell its pioneering and living in the Wild West and dealing with indians. That's history enough for me lol.
