Oh my list of films could go on forever, here is just a few:
The Spirit of St. Louis (1957)
Sound of Music (1965)
Bonnie & Clyde (1967)
The Spirit of St Louis was a great movie. I think the others had too much Hollywood "creative license" written into them.
A tad bit I must agree
The Sullivans! All five brothers killed during WWII. It's an old show, and a real tear jerker.
Fitzcarraldo The story of the man, Brian Fitzgerald, (Klaus Kinski) who wanted to be a Rubber Barron and then to build an opera house. To achieve those lofty goals he needed to literally drag a freighter over a mountain and onto the head waters of the Amazon River.
The director Werner Herzog actually hires the forest people of the area recreate the event, right down to the details of the ship and the original location deep in the rain forest. It is pretty impressive stuff.
Oh born free I remember seeing that when i was a kid.
There are so many from which to choose. One I loved was The Hiding Place.
Besides Star Wars? Probably, "In Cold Blood."
Based -ON- a true story, No can't think of anything real made into a movie.
if i posted it than i would get a bunch of thumbs ups and loves.
