I was discussing movies with a friend and he asked what do think are the best movies to watch on Memorial Day. We both decided on WWII movies. Yeah, they are filled with propaganda and overacting but they show America at it's best. My picks are: Battleground - story of 101st Airborne in the Battle of the Budge - great action, good script, and good acting. 12 O'Clock High - About US Army Air Corp bombing missions in Europe. Peck was very good. Destination Tokyo - Great adventure story about a US sub in the Pacific. Cary Grant showed he do a lot more than comedy. Since You Went Away- Not a single battle scene, it's about life on the home front, a family and how war effected them. A great movie, rather sentimental and a bit long, but still a great movie. What's your pick?
