A good biopic of Nathanael Greene and the characters that he worked with to struggle through leadership of the southern campaign in the Revolutionary War is a great idea for a movie. While broad in scope, the characters can carry this story of struggle in a very unforgiving world. Greene himself, the "father" of American cavalry William Washington, Robert E. Lee's father "Light Horse" Harry Lee, Peter Francisco, Daniel Morgan (Boone's uncle), Francis Marion, and other very interesting and exciting characters worked to develop and carry out a campaign against the very professional British Army under Cornwallis to end the war. What a story!
I'm wondering what happened to the films that were in development already, specifically about Paul Revere and the other "midnight riders," and the other one about John Brown. They have simply disappeared from the site! I was really looking forward to the Midnight Riders movie. What an exciting, very dramatic couple of days that would depict!
I have always wanted to see a film about the Fly Girls. I'm not sure if it would work but a movie about Kent State would be fascinating in my opinion. I would also love to see to see a movie made about the Freedom Riders or the Greensboro sit ins. Jane Addams has always been interesting to me, as has Amiee Semple McPherson. The story of the Manhattan Project as told from Oppenheimer's point of view or one of the residents of Oak Ridge would be neat. Japanese internment during WWII could be a powerful topic for a movie. My friend, also a history teacher, believes the Scopes Monkey Trial would be an excellent topic. I like the idea of a movie about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. The Mayflower is an excellent topic as well. I would enjoy seeing a movie about the Sea Island experiments before the end of the Civil War. The Reconstruction Era is really interesting to me, whether it's Marshall Twitchell and the Freedmen's Bureau or Kate Stone and ruined plantations. A movie about the Exodusters might be interesting. I would like to see a really good Salem Witch Trials movie. The My Lai massacre would be riveting.
