HELP! Need Film Titles!

I need your help! One of my summer research projects is a revision of the third edition of The Hollywood Curriculum: Teachers in the Movies. This is a major overhaul that will include various updates as well as two new chapters.

Below, I’ve included the filmography for the book with new films I’m already planning to include listed in boldface font. Please send me an email with the titles of movies you think I should add to my list!

Not only will I be grateful for your suggestions, but I’ll also thank you in the acknowledgments if I use a film you recommend. My email address is dalton@wfu.edu
