  2. Cleopatra, Bonnie and Clyde, Ben-Hur, Spartacus, the last of the Mohicans and
    Apocalypto...Not sure if this is considered Historical Fiction. There are so many that I love to watch.

  4. I love the Lonesome Dove mini-series; the books are great, too!

    Last of the Mohicans definitely makes my list and would win for best soundtrack-it is an awesome CD!
