Great Political Movies

Before starting today's post, please be sure to visit me for a giveaway of Escape over Romance Book Haven on Wednesday, November 7th, where I'll be discussing some of my favorite movie lines!

Now, speaking of movies, in honor of the elections, I'm listing some of my favorite political motion pictures:

Citizen Kane
The Manchurian Candidate
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
Meet John Doe
JFK
The Ides of March
All the President's Men
His Girl Friday
Seven Days in May
All the King's Men

I don't know about you, but I've had enough of radio and television ads for all the candidates, but I never tire of a good movie!  What are some of your favorite political movies? Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Citizen Kane has always been one of my favorites, political and otherwise. Likewise, all the intrigue that came with the real life circumstances surrounding the Manchurian Candidate keeps it high on my list.

The American President and Dave have been personal favourites in terms of recent years.

I guess it would have to be Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

@Shelly: Those are my top two favorites!

@William: I haven't seen either one of those, but you have such good taste in movies, I know they're excellent;)!

@Old Kitty: That'a another one I'm not familiar with--will have to add it to my lsit!

@Scarlett and James: Aren't Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell fantastic together?

@Eve: I love Jimmy Stuart's passion in that one!
