Spotlight on Americana

Movies have been vividly recording the goings-on in the good ol' USA for the past hundred some-odd years, dutifully documenting our nation's history for posterity. In honor of the anniversary of the United State's independence, we've dug through the Fandor library to find some really special examples of Americana of the cinematic variety. Whether saluting icons like Rose the Riveter and Elvis or celebrating the country's vast, beautiful landscape, each of these films capture a particular quality, facet or theme that is distinctly American.
