OK, you got some great ones on that list! I loved “Waterloo”, which I believe both Vivian Leigh and Robert Taylor thought was their favorite movie that they had been in.
I see you have the Russell Crowe film “Master and Commander”. How about “Gladiator”? Great costume piece. And “Scaramouche” which was just on TCM (any Stewart Granger fans out there?) What about the other Errol Flynn movies “Captain Blood” “Elizabeth the Queen” and “The Sea Hawk”? Now, if you are counting American history themes too Flynn did a slew of them, too!
Can’t mention Flynn without Tyrone Power, whom I think was the prettiest movie star ever! Watch “The Rains Came”, “Captain from Castile” (on TCM this week), “The Black Swan” and my own personal favorite “The Razor's Edge”.
How about Bette Davis’ “Jezebel”, “Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex”, “Mr. Skeffington” and “The Virgin Queen”? And, once again, if you are considering American themes, she’s got a boatload of them! (Her “All About Eve” and “Now, Voyager” are up there on my favorites of all time list.)
Can you tell I’m an old movie fan? (And by “old”, I don’t mean the 80’s!)
Go grab the popcorn!
