Waterloo ...I guess because the USA were at war against Great Britain in 1815 ;-) ?

Also, Waterloo was produced in Italy and the Soviet Union. Not exactly Hollywood.






But a very, very good war movie indeed.

Not Hollyweid, but English for the English , Off Track ? . Angels 20, Underwater enemy , They fought for the sky Hollywood did go to an English view point called the Key with Bill Holden . It had a interesting view point of a Tug commander being used as target Patrice by German U boot deck gunners. another one , I think, was A Yank in the RAF with Ty Power which had shots of the real 610 Sqn Spits landing and taxing . Additionally, this lady was in the film.

Waterloo is indeed a great film and in my opinion Rod Steiger IS Napoleon. I get chills when I watch his performance.

I’m also really dumbstruck how my Hollywood caveat for my thread has thrown off so many people here. I don’t think it was such a complex premise. wink

Well, there is no incentive for Hollywood to produce those sorts of movies for reasons already stated.
I doubt 'Letters from Iwo Jima' and the third movie in Oliver Stone's Vietnam trilogy (that nobody can remember the name of) would have been made if it wasn't for 'Flags of our Fathers' and 'Platoon/Born on the 4th of July'.

I suppose you have the category where the USA are the bad guys, but there's always a good American who is the focus of the movies, like 'Dances with Wolves' or 'Avatar'...OK, that's pushing it a bit, but the MBA types and Marines were obviously American and it's sort of a war movie. smile

In 'Letters from IwoJima' The US soldiers are shown (in fact we don't see them a lot as they are hidden , under cover or shelling from distance) as ennemies,reckless soldiers from the other side, making more obvious to the audience the feeling of despair of the Japanese fighting hoplessly against a stronger and impersonal enemy .Along with 'Flags of our Fathers,' a good example of dialectic.
