Classic Cinematic Americana (Part Two)

Here are ten shining examples of classic cinematic Americana that depict distant eras and fascinating characters from our historic past in a fictional manner, although some of the persons depicted are based very loosely on factual persons. They are  Our TownThe Human ComedyTender Comrade,  Hail the Conquering Hero Keeper of the Flame,  The Best Years of Our Lives,  The Devil and Daniel Webster,  Meet John Doe,  Judge Priest, and Young Mr. Lincoln.

Each movie is emotionally very powerful, superbly acted and entertaining, and deals with complicated dramatic stories that focus upon challenging elements deep within the human condition.
