8 Top Historical Movies ...


Historical Movies can come in any era. Some of them are Victorian, others take place during World War I or World War II, and still others go much, much further back. I love historical movies for their richness, especially since so many of them contain high drama. Some of them are a little too dramatic, true, but it's easy to understand why – the filmmakers want you to really feel like you were there. Historically speaking – haha! – there are a lot of really popular historical movies, and those are the ones I'm highlighting, so feel free to add your own favorites!

1. Gone with the Wind


You'll find Gone with the Wind at the top of many lists depicting historical movies. It's high drama, not at all true, of course, and yet steeply rooted in history, especially with the backdrop of the Civil War. Even forgetting the epic story of Miss Scarlett, it is a great depiction of how it must have been to live during the War between States.
