All American Movies

I was given this movie list today.  Now which of these movies have I watched...sadly not that many.  Looks like I need to watch a few more movies.

“Here are 50 movies that one way or another, capture the American spirit.  Heroes tall in the saddle, pioneers of land and air, defenders of freedom, men and women who dared to hitch their wagon to a star—they’re all here.”-All American Patriot’s Almanac, p. 103
