First Semester - History Through Movies

More than a few students have asked throughout the years to have a list of movies that I would recommend according to what we studied in history.  I decided to start with the beginning and list a few.  I am sure there are some I should add, and maybe even a few I could subtract.  

I'll be working on the spring semester this week and will also make changes to this list as I find them.

Are there any movies I missed?
