I don't agree, I don't even consider many of them to be Civil War films at all. Where is Gone With the Wind? Calling Friendly Persuasion a comedy is ridiculous. And the best, though some would say it's not a "movie" is Ken Burns' The Civil War.
GWTW is on the list at #2 - did you click through to the second page? Glory is at #1, and I would agree with that. Huston's The Red Badge of Courage is underrated. I certainly agree that Ken Burns' The Civil War ought to have been on the list, and I am quite surprised by the omission of The Beguiled. Other omissions: Dance with Wolves; The Outlaw Josey Wales; Buster Keaton's The General; the short An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge; the TV movie Andersonville.
Agree with Patrick on The Beguiled, Outlaw Josey Wales, Andersonville, and The General.Never liked How the West Was Won.Gettysburg had some good points but had a hard time getting past all the obviously fake facial air.
Stupid list. The Gangs of New York? Gimme a break. It sucked, too.
Sorry Cap'n but I love Gangs of New York.
